Former BBC Breakfast host Steph McGovern, 37, became a mother for the first time last month with her partner, whose identity is unknown. Since announcing the birth of her newborn daughter, she has stepped away from the limelight.
But earlier this week, the presenter gave a rare insight into motherhood by sharing a relatable playlist she had discovered on a music app.
Steph shared a screengrab of the sounds from her playlist, which are suitable for a newborn.
In view of her 388,000 Twitter followers, she wrote: “And there we have it… I’ve made the full transition to ‘parent of a newborn’ #babytunes [Hand over face emoji].”
Steph’s post was praised by many of her followers and fellow parents, with one writing: “Ah the good old white noise! We needed it every night with our first.”
The presenter later told her co-stars and viewers that she had a “rough start” to pregnancy in the first trimester.
Discussing the reaction to her pregnancy news, she said: “It was quite overwhelming yesterday.
“Last year I was like ‘I’m not [pregnant] with child, I’m with pot belly as that’s what I was with but now I am actually growing a human.”
When asked how she is coping by her co-stars, she added: “I’m good thank you, bit of a rough start but I’m alright now thank you.”
Elsewhere ahead of her birth, Steph announced she has stepped down from her role on BBC Breakfast.
From March next year, the mother-of-one will be fronting her very own self-titled show on Channel 4.
In a statement she said: “It’s going to be nerve-wracking, but there’s nothing I love more than finding out what makes people tick, whether it’s famous face or someone we haven’t met yet who has a cracking story to tell.
“This is a dream come true for me and I can’t wait to get started next year.”
