TELEVISION presenter Konnie Huq has said she is "chuffed to bits" after giving birth to a boy.



Huq, 36, and husband Charlie Brooker, the comedy writer, have named their first child Covey Brooker Huq.



He was born 10pm on Friday night at an undisclosed central London hospital and weighed in at 6lb 2oz, Huq's agent Jonathan Shalit said.



Huq said: "A real cutie. We are chuffed to bits, he is absolutely gorgeous."



The former Blue Peter presenter married Booker, 41, in Las Vegas in 2010 after the pair dated for nine months.



Huq had previously revealed she was keen to start a family soon after the pair married, but she had to put her plans on hold after landing a job hosting the Xtra Factor on ITV2.
