Amanda Byram reveals her ‘favourite thing’ about Dublin in 2019

TV presenter Amanda Byram has announced that she has welcomed her first child with her husband Julian Okines.

The 48-year-old revealed the news on Instagram earlier, writing that she was “overjoyed” by the arrival of their son, who has been named Phoenix Blaze Byram Okines.

The former Total Wipeout co-host, who married creative content producer Julian in 2016, shared a photo of the newborn with her 70,000 followers on the platform.

She wrote: “And then there was you. I’m so overjoyed, full of love and bursting with happiness to be able to share that [Julian] and I have welcomed our incredible son, Phoenix Blaze Byram Okines into the big wide, wonderful world.”

Amanda said Julian had been her ‘solid rock’



“What a privilege that he entrusted us to nurture and guide his little soul through the endless possibilities of life and we are eternally grateful to him for choosing us to be his parents.”

The former model said the couple’s fertility journey “has been long” – involving “the heartbreak of hope that turned to hopelessness” and “elation that turned to devastation.”

She continued: “I know many brave parents-in-waiting who, like us, have struggled for a long time, so today we share this magical news in the hope it can inspire and offer a light at the end of the tunnel. You are powerful warriors.”

The former presenter of the Irish version of Dancing with the Stars said: “I know your pain, and I see you. We send you all the strength you need to tackle your journeys.”

And addressing her husband, she added: “My heart bursts with love for you [Julian]. You have been my solid rock over these years, encouraging me to hang in and keep going.

“After every tear, every tumble, every heartache, your positivity made everything seem possible again. It’s thanks to you, your energy, and your enthusiasm, that we are all here together today.

“We are so lucky to have you, and Phoenix is lucky to call you his Daddy, I know you are already his hero. We love you infinitely.”

She concluded the post by thanking her midwife Dawn, an “incredible team” working in Brighton and the wider NHS.
