Congratulations! And for having the decency for having it after wedlock - unlike so many others.

Rachel Stone at 4:28 pm on May 23rd, 2015

Regardless of whether you had her in ‘wedlock’, a massive congratulations!! That’s one very lucky baby. I’m sure you’re wonderful parents already. It sounds like your home is filled with love.

Congratulations - something tells me you’ll be back in the limelight in record time.

I felt compelled to comment if only just to balance out the absurdity of the first comment! It really is such wonderful news - it’s lovely to know that two bright, lovely people, both of whom are excellent in their respective fields and negotiate their “celebrity” status with total integrity, like lovely, normal, sensible people, have been blessed with the best gift imaginable. You deserve her and she deserves you, you beautiful family. My heartfelt congratulations to you all. x

We have no choice as to where or to whom we are born. whether its an African village with no clean water,or comfortable middle class London. Barbara Elizabeth drew a winning ticket in lifes lottery,good luck to her. I hope mother and baby are doing well.

Hearty congratulations, and best wishes to all three of you!  It’s exciting, and scary, and thrilling, and exhausting to become new parents.  We wish you the very best of luck.

I have solved that annoying issue of “who would you most like to buy a pie and a pint for” that I am faced with.
I cannot think of a more enjoyable lunchtime, than sharing it with Victoria and David.
I am sure they will be suitably impressed, but please don’t be worried… long as you buy the first round you will soon settle down !

Many congratulations to proud parents and welcome to baby Barbara!  Hope there aren’t too many sleepless nights.  Oh, and I really enjoyed the first part of How To Be Bohemian and am looking forward to the rest of the series…

Alex And Ruth Faulds at 7:57 pm on July 13th, 2015

Wow…congratulations…I can’t think of better parents. Such good news
