Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary were delighted to deliver a special announcement with This Morning viewers on Friday. The duo, who host the ITV talk show on Fridays told fans they had “some exciting news” to share with them. They then revealed they have welcomed a brand new addition to the This Morning family. 

After the ITV show returned from an advertising break 46-year-old Alison told viewers that she and co-host Dermot, 48, had “some exciting news” to share. 

Alison informed fans that production had fixed a Christmas statue she’d broken earlier on in the episode before getting back on track to deliver the main update. 

She said: “We’ve got some more exciting news actually. We’ve got some baby news.”

Dermot explained: “This week we had a brand new addition to the This Morning family.”

Former Big Brother star Alison revealed: “Our deputy editor Emma welcomed a beautiful little girl called Mia on Monday weighing in at 7lbs 9oz.

“So we just wanted to say lots of love and we cannot wait to meet you.” 

An adorable photograph of Mia was shown on the screen and Dermot said she was “a little beaut”. 

Alison gushed: “Look at this baby, I just want to cuddle her.” 

Rounding off the announcement, Alison sent a message to mum Emma saying: “Honestly, we cannot wait for you to come back to the studio and introduce us.”

Despite Alison and Dermot’s enthusiasm about baby Mia, viewers were slightly less excited about their announcement. 

@Shrimpsy quipped: “Really omg a real baby??? No!! Omg, that’s a miracle.” 

 @Clysoshimoo commented: “I literally give zero f***s about a producer’s baby #thismorning.”

As well as announcing the baby news, Alison accidentally broke a Christmas nutcracker prop while she was presenting the instalment with Dermot. 

She said: “Welcome to This Morning, I’ve literally just thrown the nutcracker off [the side here].” 

An embarrassed Alison continued: “It’s actually smashed, I am so sorry.

“I came into this studio and it was all Christmassy and I’ve already broken something haven’t I? I’m the biggest klutz.” 

Dermot couldn’t contain his laughter following his colleague’s accident, but they managed to get the production team to fix the nutcracker while they continued presenting the show. 

Alison and Dermot have been co-hosting This Morning’s Friday slot since taking over from Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes in January 2021. 

This Morning continues weekdays on ITV between 10am and 12.30pm.
