Reporter Allison Langdon of 60 Minutes fame has just announced the birth of her first child with husband and fellow reporter, Michael Willesee Junior.

The couple, who wed during a private ceremony in Noosa in 2008, have welcomed a precious baby boy who they’ve named Mack James Willesee.

Allison, 37, shared the exciting news on Instagram with a beautiful shot of little Mack napping peacefully against her chest.

The image was captioned: “Look what we made! Introducing Mack James Willesee. Delight by day, devil by night!! Overwhelmed with love #ourbabyboy”

Speaking with 9Honey, the Channel Nine journalist revealed that gorgeous Mack’s entry into the world wasn’t as smooth as they had hoped.

She said: "Mike and I are feeling overwhelmed with love for our little man. He had a traumatic entrance into this world but he's a fighter and is now going strong.”

"We find ourselves just staring at him, unable to believe we created this tiny human."

"It's amazing the emotions you feel, a love you can't quite describe, protectiveness and fear. Besides the desire for a little more sleep, we wouldn't change a thing."

News of Allison’s rumoured pregnancy began to circulate in August of 2016 when The Sydney Morning Herald’s Private Sydney column, reported that the author was in the second trimester of her pregnancy.

At the time, pals close to the journalist told the publication that she was “over the moon” about the exciting news.

Allison, who recently made headlines after interviewing PR queen Roxy Jacenko, met husband Mike at a bar ten years ago.

The couple have made quite the name for themselves in the Australian media.

In 2014, Allison admitted to Sunday Life that she and her husband's busy work schedules meant starting a family wasn't achievable just yet.

"We've been married long enough that people have stopped asking about when we're having babies. You have to see each other to make babies," she revealed at the time.

We wish the new parents all the very best!
