Dermot posted a gorgeous tribute on instagram which said: “Welcome to the world baby Koppang O’Leary… We’re delighted to announce that we’ve had a baby! A little boy born on Tuesday 23rd June 2020 (Sankthansaften / Midsummer for you Norwegians) at 8.19am, weighing in at 6lb 13oz. Enjoying the cuddles in the newborn bubble… cats yet to be 100% convinced. Lots of love, Dermot & Dee x ❤️ ”

Dermot announced the little one’s gorgeous name during his radio show at the weekend.
The 47-year-old presenter returned to the airwaves ten days after his wife Dee Koppang, 41, gave birth to their first child.
“My lovely son came into the world ten days ago accompanied by Guy Garvey’s Elbow,” said Dermot, sharing with listeners the soundtrack to Dee’s labour.
“So forgive this moment of brief self-indulgence while we play the song that accompanied that.
“So, this is for you Kasper with a K… my wife is very insistent on that,” laughed Dermot.
“Kasper Koppang O’Leary welcome to the world” said the doting dad before playing Elbow’s hit ‘One Day Like This’.
Dee and Dermot tied the knot in 2012 after ten years together. They announced their pregnancy back in February.
Dee said on her instagram after they announced the news:
“Just wanted to say thank you so so much for all the lovely messages about our news… It’s been a rocky road to get here, so I wanted to send lots of love to any of you who are on that journey. Hang on in there. Sending love,” she wrote.
We love Kasper with a K! What do you think of the name? Let us know in the comments!
