It’s an exciting day for Glenda Gilson as she brings baby number two home from the hospital. The TV presenter shared a video to Instagram of her bundle of joy in his carrier as they left The Coombe this afternoon.
Glenda and her husband Rob MacNaughton announced the arrival of baby number two on Wednesday of this week.
The happy couple, who are already parents to little Bobby, welcomed their second son to the world this morning.
Danny Mac arrived safe and sound at 4.21am weighing 7lbs.
Sharing a first glimpse of the tiny tot, Glenda held him close and said, “Welcome to the world little man. Danny Mac arrived early this morning, safe and well and made sure he didn’t steal his big brother’s birthday.”
Paying tribute to his wife, proud dad Rob said, “Both mummy and baby are doing great. Glenda, you make my world. Next step, Danny meeting his older brother.”
Earlier today she had a reassuring message to share with other expecting Mums.
“A lot of you moms-to-be have been on to me, freaking out, worried about coming in to have your baby, don’t be.”
“I’m in the Coombe so can only speak about my experience here, the nurses, doctors, so professional, masked up and playing by the rules. Just brilliant can’t complain about that.”
One of the things most expectant mothers are worried about is having their partner with them during and after the birth.
Glenda shared; “Rob has been allowed in everyday from two to four thirty which is great.”
“It is a bit weird looking out the window and seeing hundreds of men pulling up outside, its like something from back in the day, it’s weird.”
“It’s fine once they come, everything is normal…obviously when I came in Rob had to drop me at the door… and I was on my own from there.”
“Once I was in labour he was allowed in and he was allowed to stay afterwards for an hour,” she continued.
Finally she shared a heartfelt message; “I know you first time Moms have been on your own pretty much throughout all this, but don’t worry you’re baby will be with you soon, so best of luck.”
