Matthew Wright misspells his daughter's name

He blamed it on autocorrect

Presenter Matthew Wright and his wife Amelia welcomed their first child last month after trying for almost a decade with IVF.

The couple named their daughter Cassady France Wright. The couple chose to spell Cassady with an 'a' instead of an 'i'. However, it seems Matthew made a mistake with the spelling in a tweet earlier.

He tweeted "Absolutely thrilled with how amazing the @hellomag shoot went - @mrsameliawright and Cassidy both look amazing - always helps posing next to me! Can't wait for you to see them and hear about her arrival on this little ol' planet..."[sic]

Shortly after he sent the tweet, a fan asked "Cassidy or Cassady?"

Matthew realised the mistake and replied to the comment writing "Cassady Cassady Cassady - bleedin autocorrect!" [sic]

Their baby girl was born at 6:22pm January 25th 2019 evening weighing five and a half pounds, according to The Sun.

Cassidy or Cassady?

Matthew, 53, and Amelia, 40, later confirmed to Hello's website that "mother and baby (and father) are doing very well".

The two have wanted a baby for many years, having gone through several heartbreakingly unsuccessful rounds of IVF treatment.

Matthew also told Hello that this seventh attempt would be their last if it didn't work.

"It was our final roll of the dice," he admitted.

He appeared on Lorraine with Amelia to reveal the pregnancy last September.

Matthew explained during the show he was determined to make fatherhood his number one priority – and even teared up as he and his wife received congratulatory video messages from celeb pals.

The TV star quit Channel 5's The Wright Stuff live on air last year, telling fans the chat show he'd hosted for 18 years was causing him stress and a lack of sleep.

He said at the time: "The decision to leave was made slightly reluctantly at first, but when I look back now, after 18 years of early mornings doing the same kind of thing, that's probably enough."

In November, he revealed he was still suffering from sleepless nights due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, attributed to strain from his job.

Matthew told The Sun:"It's difficult to deal with. I thought maybe [the insomnia was] just because I'm used to waking up early in the morning, but the doctor said, 'No, it is a sign of post-traumatic stress'."

He now hosts a weekday afternoon programme called The Matthew Wright Show on chat station talkRADIO.
