Introducing Lisbon Lion! This Morning star Dr Zoe Williams, 41, shows off her newborn son and reveals boyfriend Stuart McKay delivered their baby
Dr Zoe Williams has revealed she’s named her newborn son Lisbon Lion.
The This Morning star gave birth to her first child three weeks ago, and explained her partner Stuart McKay had to help deliver their baby after a surprisingly quick labour.
Speaking to HELLO! magazine, Zoe revealed that she had a water birth at home but the process was so quick there was no time for the midwife to arrive.

She revealed: ‘I had planned on a home birth, but as it turned out, there wasn’t much choice because he came quite quickly.
‘It was a beautiful moment when Stuart and I were facing each other in the (birthing) pool, we looked down and he was there in the water.
‘I picked him up and we had five minutes where we held him, before even checking if he was a girl or boy.’
Stuart added: ‘It sounds stressful but the reality was far from it. Zoe was incredible and I had complete confidence everything would be okay.’

Zoe revealed they decided to name their son, who weighed eight pounds, Lisbon as she met Stuart at a bar in Portugal 20 months ago and decided shortly afterwards that would be the name of their child.
The doctor now plans to take a year off from her work as an NHS GP but hopes to return to This Morning sooner.
Zoe announced she’d welcomed her first child last week in an adorable Instagram post.
