Paralympian and TV presenter Ade Adepitan MBE and his singer wife Linda Harrison, who goes the stage name Elle Exxe, have welcomed a baby boy.
The former wheelchair basketball player bronze medalist, 47, took to Twitter on Monday to reveal the happy news and wrote: ‘I’m still buzzing!!
‘Because at 6:36 am this morning I became a father for the first time. So much respect for my wife @elleexxe she absolutely smashed it, and now we have a beautiful baby boy! #newborn.’
Just a fortnight ago, Linda shared a picture of her bump as she posed with Ade on Instagram, writing that the baby was due on Jan 12.
She penned: ‘In non-Christmas and Covid or music news… my bump keeps bumping into things
Just 3 weeks to go til baby Adepifam! The due date is a palindrome 12.1.21 but I heard on average first babies are 10 days late. Place your bets. Exxe x.’
Ade shared the same photo and wrote: ‘The next 4 weeks are gonna be eventful.
‘That’s saying something after the year we’ve all had, but yep it feels like we’re about to begin a new chapter a new adventure.
‘I’m feeling a mixture of excitement, and trepidation but mostly excitement!
‘Keep an eye out for our posts as one day very soon you might just see a new member of the @adepifam appear on your feed.
Congrats to the couple!
