Channel Nine host Jayne Azzopardi's cutest photos of her baby boy Joey

As Jayne herself says, ''he's perfect''.

By Rebecca Sullivan
Back in February, Channel Nine host Jayne Azzopardi gave birth to her first child, a beautiful baby boy called Joey.
Joey's arrival was extra special because like many women, the Weekend Today presenter and her cinematographer husband Trent Butler had battled with infertility in their quest to have a child together.
But eventually, the 35-year-old and her hubby got their wish, with the couple welcoming their family's newest addition on February 4th.
"Little Joey Lance Edward Butler arrived at 11:31am on Tuesday and mum says 'he's perfect,'" Channel Nine said in a statement at the time.
And a few days later, Jayne herself took to Instagram to share the first photos of Joey, taken by his Dad, and a heartwarming message.
"Our beautiful boy Joey arrived this week and his dad and I are completely besotted," Jayne wrote alongside a gorgeous photo of herself and Joey having a snuggle.
"Turns out dad is not only a whiz behind the 📸, he's a total legend on the frontline of nappy-changing & baby-wrapping. I hit the jackpot with both of them."

Jayne has been very open about the fact that falling pregnant certainly wasn't a walk in the park.
"I feel compelled to say that it hasn't been easy for us and I know that there will be people watching who are struggling to conceive or... have experienced loss themselves and I know they'll be happy for me," she told Today viewers last year.
"But I also know that it can be extra painful to hear somebody else announcing happy news so I hope everybody gets their happy announcement, but we are just, we are just delighted."

She first alluded to her fertility struggles in an Instagram post announcing her happy news back in September.
"It's getting a bit hard to suck this belly in now! Baby boy is due in Feb and Trent & I are delighted," she wrote at the time.
"It wasn't an easy road for us to get here so sending all our love to those hoping for their own happy news one day soon. 😘."
So to celebrate Jayne and Trent's gorgeous (and long-awaited) baby boy, take a look at these beautiful photos of this loved-up mother and son duo.
