Sarah-Jane Crawford, 38, has welcomed her second child.
The TV presenter took to Instagram on Friday to announce the news with a stunning post showing her posing with the newborn and her football manager partner Brian Barry-Murphy, with whom she shares daughter Summer, 16 months.
She shared a caption reading: ‘Baby girl emerged to Wham “Last Xmas” from my C-Section playlist which was on shuffle told you I love that song!! She’s unnamed as yet but we do have a couple of faves. But feel free to tell me any girl’s names you think’.
Sarah-Jane suffered a miscarriage before she got pregnant with Summer and was advised she may need IVF to have children – meaning she started trying for a baby soon after her first daughter arrived in August last year.

Her caption continued: ‘To our lovely midwife Breda who helped our little girl get back to a normal breathing pattern and remaining calm under pressure ( without me even knowing) and for helping me to recover…
‘Also to the midwives through the night who ears I chewed off. To Brian and all my friends and family who have helped with Summer or offered ( who’s smitten with her sister ) also special thanks to auntie…
Back in July, Sarah-Jane revealed she was expecting with her second child following Summer’s birth the previous August.
She explained that the speed of her decision came amid concerns over her levels of fertility – so she decided to start trying for another baby soon afterwards.

She told Hello! magazine: ‘It’s one of those things that’s a little bit surreal. I never thought I’d have one baby, let alone two.’
She added: ‘People say, “Oh, brilliant, our kids grew up together, they’re best friends”. I think there’s a lot of practical reasons and emotional reasons, in terms of siblings, why it’s good.
She continued: ‘But I don’t think I’ve necessarily had the luxury to think, “You know what, I’ll space them out a bit.”

‘We find it hard to accept that we have evolved as a human race in so many ways – women are now more educated than ever before, we have impressive careers.
‘But ultimately, what hasn’t changed is that there will come a day, on average, in your 40s, where you can’t have any more children. And that’s just the fact of the matter.’
The TV star, who is a vegan, also admitted she has been craving meat during her pregnancy but was determined not to give in.
She said: ‘The worst thing is, sometimes people will go, ‘Oh, listen to your body. You obviously need the meat if you’re craving it’.
‘But I know it would make me so ill to just suddenly start eating meat. I haven’t touched meat in six years!’
