“It’s been over a week since I’ve taken off my PJs, washed my hair, emerged from my disposable pants, used bucket loads of Lanisoh or slept more than two hours a night and I am beyond grateful for every single one of these things.

TV presenter shares ‘long’ fertility journey

Earlier this week, Amanda shared the first picture of herself cuddling up to the baby.

She thanked fans for their love and support as she swaddled him in a blue carrier.

Sharing news of Phoenix’s arrival, she also opened up about their “long” fertility journey.

“Our fertility journey has been long and we know only too well the heartbreak of the hope that turned to hopelessness, the elation that turned to devastation and the strain putting this often-secretive journey before your job, your friends, and your life,” she said.

“I know many brave parents-in-waiting who, like us, have struggled for a long time, so today we share this magical news in the hope it can inspire and offer a light at the end of the tunnel.

“You are powerful warriors, I know your pain, and I see you. We send you all the strength you need to tackle your journeys,” she added.
