It's a boy!
And so I am an uncle! Golf-playing-soon-to-be-a-father-brother has dropped the now entirely inappropriate 'soon' business as Katharine gave birth to a bouncing baby boy at 12:08pm today. Charlie James George (or possibly Charlie George James) dropped into this world with all the correct appendages and, to quote 'enormous knackers'. They, or he, weighed in at 8lbs 5oz in old money or around 4 kgs in new, which seems like an awful lot to me, but apparently it is not.
Anyway, congratulations to mother, father and well-tackled baby and welcome to the newest addition to the family.
