Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty Welcome Their Second Son: ‘We are over the moon’
So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley is a mum for the second time. Deeley and her husband Patrick Kielty welcomed their second son James Patrick Kielty. Their new bundle of joy joins his big brother Milo, 2.
The 41-year-old T.V. host said in a statement, “We are over the moon with happiness and Milo is the perfect big brother.”
Deeley had been open about her desire to expand her family and loved the role as a mum. She went on to admit in an interview that she needed to put the gas on the pedal if she was going to go for number two, “I would love some more,” she told The Mirror. “But I have to get on with it if I do.”
‘When you go for your check-ups they call you a ‘geriatric mum’. That is the terminology they use, I swear. They say, ‘Ma’am, you are triple high risk’.’
Cat announced her exciting pregnancy news in January via Twitter. “Over the moon to share that Milo is going to be a big brother. Can’t wait to be a family of four in the spring. We’re all so excited,” she tweeted.
Deeley has previously spoken how challenging parenting can be but she just adores being a mother. “I think it’s a hard job — if you want to do a really good job, it’s hard work. If you really care and you really want to make it, you put pressure on yourself.”
She went on to say, “That’s kind of what I think, but I don’t think there’s any other job in the world where you have to put love into every second of it. You can’t coast.”
When asked in March if she and her hubby had any names picked out for their second child Deeley admitted she and her husband can “never agree on names.”
She went on to joke, “I think I will always win at the end of the day, because I’ve done all the hard work. So I’m just not going to say anything. Let’s not argue about it right now. I’ll just win when it comes up, right?”
