Actress Billie Piper welcomed a 6lb 11oz. baby boy named Winston James this morning at 1am (GMT) at the Portland Hospital in London. She had to have an emergency c-section after a 26-hour labour. Dad Laurence Fox said outside the hospital,
“He is beautiful. He is sweet. Billie is happy, of course she is, she’s a mum. I’m tired but not as tired as her. I’m a proud father. Mum is doing really well, no complications, healthy, brilliant.”
Asked when she was leaving hospital,
“Well, she has been cut apart, so probably overnight. I will be with her for the length of it.”
The Sun is reporting that actress Billie Piper welcomed her first child, a son, at Portland Hospital in London. The baby boy was reportedly delivered by C-section, and husband Laurence Fox was present at the birth. No other details have been released.
New dad Laurence spoke outside the hospital, saying, he “feels fantastic,” and when asked about the baby’s name, answered,
‘It’s a private moment.’
