Second baby boy for Theakston

Second baby boy for Theakston

Jamie Theakston has become a father for the second time, naming his new son Kit.

The DJ’s wife Sophie gave birth to their second baby boy, weighing 8lb 12oz, last night.

Speaking to his Heart Breakfast co-host Harriet Scott this morning, Theakston, 38, said: “We’ve decided to call him Kit, not after the Knight Rider car, you understand.

“He’s absolutely fine, he seems to be enjoying himself and his mum’s all well.”

When asked if he was any help during the labour, Theakston said: “My support was absolutely vital, as you can probably imagine.

“I got told off quite a lot, not only by my wife but also by the midwife, but it all went remarkable smoothly and I can’t wait for him to meet you all.”

The couple already have a one-year-old son named Sidney.
