Veteran BBC presenter Harry Gration has become a father again at the age of 68 after his wife Helen gave birth aged A veteran BBC presenter has become a father again at the age of 68 after his wife gave birth aged Harry Gration, who has been broadcasting for three decades, announced in June that he and his TV news director wife Helen, 51, were to become parents again following IVF treatment.
And this morning, baby son Hamilton was born at The child's birth comes after trolls sent the TV host messages in June saying the couple would be too old to look after their new child. Mr Gration responded to those claims at the time by saying: 'You do get some people on social media who have negative things to say but I am taking it all on the chin.
Mrs Gration had said that she was 'not ready for motherhood to end yet' and Mr Gration insisted 'I can change a nappy at 68'. The couple already have year-old twins Harvey and Harrison, while Mr Gration has three children from two previous marriages. Ms Gration's fertility consultant told her she could have another baby, but not with her own eggs and the couple started looking for egg donor in January In January, the couple travelled to Cyprus to have the treatment done and a week scan revealed a healthy baby.
Mrs Gration said she was not scared about the future: 'I will remain active, and healthy, and be functioning well enough to get this child into adulthood,' she wrote. She also said she knew her new child would find two role models in their older brothers. Mr Gration earlier told the Yorkshire Post that he was a bit 'shell shocked' by the news that he was set to become a father again. He tweeted: 'In truth it is my wife and twin boys who are the ones to admire in all of this. They give me the strength to challenge those who say I am mad.
