It's a boy!!!!

Howdy y'all

I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce by son, Jake Pajo Phillips, to both and to the world. He was born 4 hours ago, 18:47 BST and i cut the cord with both style an finesse. He weighs in at 3.6Kg, 53cm and is totally healthy and hungry. (pic won't hang around for long)

Unfortunately I got chucked out of the hospital at 10pm, hence me being here.... i assure you i wouldn't be doing this now if i could be with him!

I'm a dad!!

Best wishes and congratulations on your child!

The image is taking a long time to load here on my slow connection. Maybe you could upload a low-res version?

Congratulations, you must be so proud.

From the sounds of things the baby is doing very well, hope the mother is aswell.

Best wishes and good luck for the future
