BIG John has got a little girl - an 8lbs 13oz baby daughter.
Hallam FM breakfast show radio presenter John Harrison and wife Del are overjoyed after the birth of their first child at the Jessop Wing hospital in Sheffield.
They have yet to name the baby, who was 13 days overdue and finally made an appearance at 10.13pm on Monday.
John, 37, who married childhood sweetheart Delyth Cross in 2009, said of their joy: “I haven’t - well, I have - only just stopped crying! We’ve got a baby girl. I’m a bit lost for words!
“She’s a beautiful chubby little girl, which is funny because we really thought we were having a boy! Now - what to call her?
“All at the Jessop’s have been amazing so a big, big thank you.”
The arrival of his baby girl is another cause for celebration for John, who has just signed up to present his award-winning breakfast show, Big John@Breakfast, for three more years until 2014.
It will make him the radio presenter with the UK’s longest running first breakfast show.
He added: “I honestly can’t believe they are letting me mess about on the radio for another three years.
“I am stunned that at the age of 37 I still haven’t had to get a job to make a living yet.”
