Ambridge has welcomed its newest resident as The Archers’ Adam Macy and Ian Craig have become parents to a baby son.

The couple’s baby, who was born via surrogacy with their friend Lexi, arrived unexpectedly on Monday evening, after Ian was called away from his judging duties at the Flower and Produce show.

Married couple Ian (Stephen Kennedy), the head chef at Grey Gables, and farmer Adam Macy (Andrew Wincott),  are still to reveal the baby’s name.
