BBC News host Harry Gration and his wife become parents again at 51 and 68

BBC News presenter Harry Gration, 68, welcomed a baby boy today with his wife Helen, 51.

Their son Hamilton was born at 10.41am.

He weighed six pounds and three ounces.

The spouses used an egg donor and travelled to Cyprus for the IVF treatment as British law does not allow women of Helen's age to undergo fertility treatment.

The duo already share 16-year-old twin boys Harvey and Harrison.

Harry also has three children from two previous marriages.

The couple decided to get pregnant again when their two sons went off to university.

BBC Look North announced news of the birth of Harry's son Hamilton on the programme.

Last year, Harry celebrated a whopping 40 years of broadcasting with the BBC.

Wife Helen also used to work at the BBC, but left to follow a new career-path.

She decided to open up a nursery after having her twin boys through the IVF process.

When it was first announced Helen would be expecting her third child, she confirmed the baby's name would begin with an "H," following suit with her other sons.
