Paralympian Ade Adepitan and wife Linda Harrison announce birth of their son


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!
