It comes after Dermot took to Instagram to announce the news as he gushed he was ‘enjoying the cuddles in a newborn bubble.’
Posting a sweet photo of the personalised baby grow, Dermot revealed they’d welcomed a son together, after first announcing that they were expecting in February.
In his post, Dermot penned: ‘Welcome to the world baby Koppang O’Leary… We’re delighted to announce that we’ve had a baby!

‘Enjoying the cuddles in the newborn bubble… cats yet to be 100% convinced. Lots of love, Dermot & Dee x.’
Just a day before their son was born, Dermot revealed that he and Dee were celebrating their impending arrival with a ‘summer solstice’ theme baby shower.
Dermot and his wife Dee announced in February that they were expecting their first child together.
Taking to Instagram, they shared a fun picture of a message board decorated with a floral wreath which said ‘Koppang O’Leary productions’ would be welcoming a ‘new arrival coming soon’.
In the post Dermot penned: ‘We’re pleased to announce that we’re expecting a little Koppang O’Leary…’
Dee debuted her baby bump for the first time at the British Academy Film Awards 2020 Nominees’ Party in February.
Since then, the private couple have shared rare glimpses of Dee’s pregnancy during lockdown.
In April, the Norwegian producer and director showcased her growing baby bump as she revealed she had to do Dermot’s hair and make-up for the One World Together highlights show.
Dee joked: ‘No pressure… had to do @radioleary hair & make up for tonight’s @bbcone @glblctzn live show… (7.15pm).
‘Apologies in advance if he looks orange on the show There’s only so much @sarahexley1 could teach me on a Zoom tutorial…’
The presenter’s news sparked a slew of congratulatory posts from stars including Holly Willoughby, Tamzin Outhwaite and Ruth Langsford.
Dermot tied the knot with Dee in 2012 after ten years together at St Mary’s Church in Chiddingstone, Kent.
It proved to be a star-studded occasion with guests including Holly Willoughby, James Corden and Bear Grylls.
In 2015 Dermot hinted that he was ready to start a family with wife Dee, telling Fabulous Magazine: ‘I definitely want kids, but I’ve got a very busy wife with a very busy life.
‘It’s not fair for me to say, ”I want kids now”. I do want kids with my wife, but I want them when we both think it’s the right thing to happen.’
Late last year ahead of his seventh wedding anniversary, Dermot also spoke about the secret to his happy relationship, telling Fabulous: ‘It’s a work in progress, isn’t it?
‘The key for me is giving each other space, not giving each other a hard time and actually having fun together. And we do.’
Dermot and Dee met in 2002 when they worked for the same TV production company, and got engaged in New York in December 2011.
