Emily Atack Gives Birth! TV Star Welcomes Son Barney with Boyfriend Alistair Garner and Says ‘All My Dreams Have Come True’

Emily Atack has given birth to her first child with her boyfriend, Dr. Alistair Garner.

The TV personality, 34, announced the joyous news on her Instagram page, sharing a heartwarming photo of the new parents with their baby son, Barney, on Thursday.

Emily wrote alongside the photo: “We have a beautiful son. Barney James Garner. All my dreams have come true.”

In the photo, Emily looked radiant as she cradled Barney in her arms while Alistair leaned his head against hers.

The Inbetweeners star was inundated with well-wishes from her celebrity pals, including Chloe Madeley, who wrote: “Congratulations guys, we love you so much.” Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts wrote: “Aww congrats Ems!” while Stacey Dooley added: “Yesyesyesyesyesyes.

Others, including Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Nicole Appleton, Lisa Snowdon, and Dragons’ Den star Sara Davies, also congratulated Emily.

Only a day earlier, on Wednesday, Emily jokingly begged for help as she showcased her huge baby bump while counting down the days until she gave birth. The presenter posted a snap as she lifted her top to showcase her blossoming belly for the camera and wrote: “Help…. Me….” along with a laughing emoji.

Emily confirmed she was six months pregnant in March, sharing a rough idea of her due date with her fans during a BBC Breakfast appearance. She also revealed she was expecting a baby boy. Emily’s appearance was to discuss the campaign to introduce affirmative consent in relationships.

She explained how she wanted to bring about a change to sex consent laws for both men and women by backing a campaign by Right To Equality. Emily said: “I’m six months [pregnant] and I wasn’t going to say this, but I am going to say this – I’m having a boy.”

She added: “So I want him to be a part of a really positive change and I want him to grow up knowing he can talk about these things openly and enjoy his life. I want him to be on the right side of history.”

It came after Emily admitted her “body is a temple” during pregnancy, after previously being told off by friends for staying out late and not looking after herself. During a Loose Women appearance, she revealed how pregnancy had changed her priorities before welcoming their little boy. She said: “I used to get told off by my friends for not looking after myself enough and staying up too late and all of that, and now I’m like, ‘No, my body is a vessel.’ It’s so important that I get an early night and I’m really looking after myself.”

Emily announced her pregnancy in December and said she was “over the moon” to be becoming a mother. Announcing the news, she wrote: “Hello Everyone, it’s been a little while but I’m back with some news. I’m delighted to share with you all that we’re having a baby! I’ve never been so happy and utterly terrified at the same time. Please go easy on me.”

Emily has known her boyfriend Alistair for almost three decades, as her mother Kate Robbins is the sister of Alistair’s stepmother Jane Garner. They were introduced after Emily’s aunt started dating Alistair’s father, Stephen Garner, in the early nineties before they got married in 1994.

Emily and Alistair kept their relationship secret for some time but grew close over the past year and have recently moved in together. A source told MailOnline: “Emily and Alistair have grown close over the past 12 months. It was unexpected, but their family is delighted for them. They make a great couple, and everybody is excited for their new arrival.”

Congratulations to Emily and Alistair on the arrival of their beautiful son, Barney James Garner!
