Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield sent their love to Dr Zoe Williams on This Morning following the happy news she had given birth to her first child.

The medical expert announced in January that she was expecting a baby with husband Stuart McKay, and revealed on Sunday night that the tot had arrived safe and sound.

While she didn’t divulge the baby’s gender, presenters Holly and Phil couldn’t help but take a guess – with Holly convinced it was a boy.

"We just wanted to say congratulations, Zoe, and we're looking forward to seeing you," Holly beamed, as the announcement photo of the baby’s tiny hand was shown on screen.

Phillip said: "We don't have any other details other than that, we don't know if the baby is a boy or a girl.”


He then turned to Holly and said: "What did you think it would be?"

“I wanted it to be a boy but we don't know,” Holly admitted. "We have had no confirmation yet." "You've never been wrong – so far, you've been 100 per cent correct,” Phillip teased.

“I know… no pressure!” she laughed. “It’s my skill.”

On the announcement, Dr Zoe wrote: “So delighted to announce that baby Williams-McKay has arrived and we are all safe, sound and doing great."

The new mum added: "We are taking a week away from social media to enjoy our newborn love bubble but I promise to share all the details once I'm back online next week."

Ruth Langsford wrote: "Congratulations!!! Can't wait to see him/her. Enjoy your baby love bubble!," while her husband Eamonn Holmes added: "Wonderful news."

Loose Women’s Andrea McLean said: “Ohhhhh congratulations!!!”

While fashion expert Gok Wan added: “Love you all very very much x”

Dr Zoe met her partner in 2019 in Portugal, and the pair announced their pregnancy in January this year, with Zoe saying at the time that she had always been dreaming of being a mother.

Despite her hectic schedule on screen, she also works as a GP.

But Zoe told OK! she’s “naturally the type of person who thrives on a certain level of chaos.”

The star said: “I love to be busy, as long as the work that I’m doing is varied and interesting to me. Most of my work revolves around people, from the GP work, to the TV, and to me there is nothing as interesting as people.

“I often say that I do not have a great work-life balance, but I have a fantastic work-work balance.”

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV.
