The TV host has welcomed her second child with husband Michael Willesee Jnr.
Just days after her father-in-law Mike Willesee passed away from throat cancer, Weekend Today host and 60 Minutes reporter, Allison Langdon, has given birth to a daughter! The Daily Mail reports that the TV presenter gave birth to a baby girl last Sunday, the second child for the couple, and a sibling for their two year old son, Mack.
A Difficult Time
With the recent death of the TV legend and father of six, the couple are yet to make an official announcement and are said to be dealing privately with their grief. Confirming the gender of her baby last November, Allison revealed that she had enjoyed her second pregnancy. “I’ve been great, I’ve felt fine,” she said. The couple are rumoured to have named their newborn daughter Scout Heather Willesee, tragically born just over 24 hours after her grandfather’s funeral.
Both Allison and Michael attended the funeral on Friday, before welcoming Scout on Sunday, the thirteenth grandchild in the Willesee family. As the family mourn the loss of 76 year old Mike, we have no doubt that the birth of their daughter will provide comfort and joy during this difficult time.
Congratulations to Allison, Michael and Mack!
