Jon Snow and his wife have welcomed their first child together.

The 73-year-old broadcaster and his 46 year old wife Dr. Precious Lunga, who've been married since 2010, used a surrogate after several miscarriages.  

Jon released a statement saying "In our desire to seal our now 11 years of marriage with a baby, my wife suffered numerous medical setbacks and miscarriages.  Consequently, we will always be deeply grateful to our surrogate, who carried our embryo to term.  Amid these challenging times, we feel doubly blessed to be able to celebrate our good fortune".

Their baby boy arrived on the 2nd of March and Jon has two grown-up daughters.
