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.


New Beginnings

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!

  • That is simply amazing news


  • I had a quick squiz at the pic and thought the guy was someone else lol
    Only kinda know who Alison is. Good timing for the birth tho. I guess a lil but earlier might have been better, if Mike met the new bub before passing. But I don’t know the condition he was in prior to death


  • Congratulations to the family. I hope this baby can be a helpful distraction for them as they heal from their recent loss.


  • Congratulations to them – I am sure this little girl will help greatly in the healing process from the loss of her granddad


  • Congratulations to them – the circle of life brings sorrow and joy.


  • Such a wonderful blessing to come at a difficult time


  • Such a sad time but hopefully their beautiful new daughter is bringing much needed joy to the entire family.


  • This family would be going through a roller coaster of emotions. I wish them all the best.


  • So sad that her father in law didn’t get to meet the little one


  • Congratulations to them – something to help a little, perhaps.


  • Congratulations Allison and Micheal! Wishing you all the best for the future!


  • congratulations to them


  • Congratulations on the birth of the baby girl and it’s a difficult time for the family and poor grandfather didn’t even meet the new baby it’s sad


  • Oh, what a difficult moment for them indeed. It’s surely a moment of happiness, but of sadness too because of the death in the family.
    The father of my best friend died just 4 days after my daughter’s birth.
