Studio 10 has used Twitter to announce that one of their hosts has given birth to their first child.

Sarah Harris and her husband Tom Ward have welcomed their first bundle of joy this morning – a week earlier than was expected.

The announcement from Studio 10 also revealed the very traditional name the couple have chosen for their newborn:

‘We’re thrilled to announce Paul William Ward was born 11.30am this morning. Congratulations @SarahHarris!’

According to the Daily Mail, Sarah spoke last week about the complications at the start of her pregnancy, sharing “A lot of you don’t know that early on I nearly lost my little man.”

“I had a lot of complications which made those first 14 weeks really, really scary. It’s why I was missing in action that week at the Logies.”

We know you will join us in congratulating Sarah and Tom at this very exciting time.

  • I had my first child 9 years ago. He arrived 3 weeks early via emergency cesarean section after a failed induction and weighed a very healthy 8 pound 1 ounce. I hate to think how big he would have been if he went full term.

  • I was induced a week early and she arrived so quickly (15 minutes after arriving in the birthing suite) that hubby and the doctor missed her birth. I was squeezing my legs together and pressing the buzzer for the midwife

  • Congratulation on the birth of your son, I have some on time, one late and others early. Early ones were due to the twins plus my age. The other one I sent 5 months in hospital, was told go home get your affairs ready and baby will be here 12/12 an easy date to remember. The one who went over was in a hurry to get out when he decided to come and had the cord around his neck twice. No time to get changed at the hospital and MIL got to see her grandchild before the parents as she was there with me.

  • Yay, so exciting. And true to form they’ve named their son with strong and traditional Paul. Great timing, just before Christmas. He’s a big boy. I really feel for what Sarah has gone through but wish her and her new family all the best.

  • yes i also had complications the first 9 months with is my first pregnancy I have 9 months complete bed rest. i actually could not carry him too full term and then to top that gynecologist let me go to hell 42 weeks my first son weight was 9.4kg yes a big baby for me I he never had much room to move around my tummy and he was extremely sick for the first 2 weeks of his life he was put in a humidicrib and I couldn’t even breastfeed him. Then when I finally got to nurse him it wasn’t until night before I went home in hospital with me believe it or not he cried all night open happily after all this is well worth all the effort because I never had any issues with him afterwards I’m very grateful to have him

  • My daughter was 6 weeks early, born at 34wks. We had driven interstate spending Christmas with family at the time when on Boxing Day night I started having contractions but I thought it was just stomach pains or potentially Braxton Hicks, (which I had with my son). We were staying at my sister in laws place but were by ourselves at the time & it was 11pm when the pains began. It all happenend very quickly, I tried a shower which seemed to bring them on quicker! I felt like I needed to go to the toilet, then felt like I needed to push. I realised at that point it was definitely contractions. Hubby said to me you can’t have the baby here (as in, interstate) haha. He rang 000 to request an ambulance & had the 000 guy talk him through a potential home birth whilst the ambulance was on its way. Paramedics arrived just in time, I was popped onto a stretcher & my waters broke, they wheeled me out to the ambulance & our daughter was born at 2am in the ambulance out the front of the house!! Our son, who was 19mths then, was asleep through most of it until the paramedics arrived & the commotion woke him. Hubby had called his Mum to come & watch our son whilst we went to the hospital. Our daughter was in the Special Care Unit for 2 weeks whilst we tried to organise getting back home to NSW the quickest & cheapest way possible. It was a stressful & frightening time not knowing how long she would be in hospital firstly but also trying to organise transport home as we had no capsule set up for our car. Lets just say we were very glad to get home finally & our daughter was doing so well at her regular newborn check ups. She will be 1 on 27th December and is just thriving now!! I know it could have been a lot worse, as other parents have experienced, and we are so blessed she is happy & healthy. It will certainly be a story for her when she is older that she wanted to take advantage of the Boxing Day sales!! ☺


    • What an experience. I can imagine how frightened you were.

  • Congratulations Sarah and Tom on the early arrival of Tom, my first two girls arrived early, my son decided to linger way past the due date, yet once born he never stopped.
