Newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky has released the first pictures of her baby boy who was born last week.
Black-and-white photographs of the as yet unnamed baby were broadcast on Five News, which Kaplinsky presented before taking maternity leave.
The 36-year-old newsreader had the baby with investment banker husband Justin Bower, whom she married in 2005.
Kaplinsky left the BBC to join Five News in February in a deal reportedly worth £1m a year.
Her first broadcast on the channel attracted one million viewers, almost double the usual audience. In 2004, she won the first series of BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing.
The baby was born at a London hospital at 0830 BST last Thursday.
