Many thanks, Nige, although I'm completely baffled about how you found out! Anyway, yes, it's wonderful news and my daughter and new granddaughter are both well. On the other hand, I'm exhausted! Yet to meet the wee one but couldn't be happier.
Thanks again.

He's an extremely talented artist, Steven, and a smashing guy. I'm so happy for them both. My poor daughter went through 24 hours of labour before having a caesarean. Mother and daughter are now home and I had my first cuddle with little Marlowe. (Really  love the name, by the way!)
If anyone's interested, and has access to Facebook or Instagram, you can see my son-in-law's work under the name of Steven Higginson.
Once again, thanks, Nige.

Wonderful news, Roger, and an excellent name indeed.

Huge congratulations to all the family! Word has clearly got around - they're holding a street party outside my window as I type...
I apologise, in advance.

Oh this is wonderful news. You will make a great granddad or what will little Marlowe be calling you?

A whole new stage of life for you :-)

Congrats!

Thank you, everyone. My son has just announced his engagement to his partner, the lovely Erin, so this has been a very special time for me. I'm a very old and happy man.

Your cup runneth over :-)

Nice feeling to have the adult kids settled and happy.

Echo that, Diane!

And great to hear your additional good news. More congratulations all round!

I'm constantly being told these things come in threes, so I'm fully expecting your call-up to the Scotland squad any day now.
I apologise, in advance.

After yesterday's result, I would say it's a certainty.

Excellent! I've bookmarked the Hampden Ticket web page in anticipation.
I apologise, in advance.
