BBC TV star Victoria Coren Mitchell has welcomed her second child with comedian David Mitchell.
The 51 year old Only Connect presenter announced the joyful news on social media platform X, previously known as Twitter.
Victoria posted: "Many people are assuming my tweet yesterday was a Halloween costume. Not at all; last week I had a baby and nothing currently fits me except cloaks. Luckily, Only Connect is a pre-record. Happy All Saints Day."
The couple have named their daughter June Violet.
The happy news was also confirmed in The Times. The announcement read: "MITCHELL on 26th June October 2023 to Victoria and David, a daughter, June Violet sister to Barbara."
Victoria and David, 49, first met in 2007 at a film premiere, where they were introduced by fellow comedian David Baddiel. Victoria once shared: "He specifically said to me, 'There's David Mitchell over there, I think you should probably marry him, I'll get the ball rolling by introducing you.'"
Victoria's husband David shared in his 2012 autobiography, Back Story: "I was pretty sure she was flirting, but was unwilling to believe my instincts as that seemed too good to be true."
He and Victoria hit it off instantly, but their first date didn't happen until 2010, as Victoria's father had just passed away.
In an interview with The Guardian, David confessed: "The problem is, I hate the sort of dating thing. I just, I just find it incredibly awkward… I don't dislike being single enough to put myself through the pain."
However, he was simply biding his time before trying to win Victoria over again.
"I waited three years. Isn't that weird? Aren't I odd? I can't explain it other than to say I couldn't do anything else," he wrote.
In 2015, David and Victoria welcomed their daughter, Barbara Elizabeth June Mitchell, and they now live together in Kilburn, north west London.
In his book, David admitted he was "hopelessly in love" with his wife.
"She's not only too wonderful, she's too right for me. She's funny, bright, sexy, nervous and confident in ways that could have been meant for me," he gushed.
Victoria also expressed her surprise at landing David. "I mean, he's a hugely successful television comedian, he could have had a gorgeous 24-year-old skinny wife with a tiny nose and a string bikini, but he chose me! Me!" she told the Telegraph.
They lead a quiet life, but in 2020 they did agree to give fans a sneak peek into their home life when they appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox – and they were a massive hit.
Their funny and straightforward commentary while watching the dating show Five Guys a Week led viewers to declare them "the next Giles and Mary," who are popular regulars on the show.
