TV presenter gives birth to baby boy after spending nearly N40m on IVF


A couple who documented their struggle to conceive have finally achieved their dream after spending nearly N40m (£80,000) on 15 rounds of IVF.
TV news presenters Hannah and Lewis Vaughan Jones spent years battling with infertility.
But just before Christmas the pair announced the arrival of Matheson Calon Tallett Vaughan Jones – or “Sonny” for short – who they described as “perfect in every way”.
“We’ve been through many years of heartache, but we’ve got the best Christmas present at the end of it all,” said CNN news anchor Hannah, who gave birth to Sonny on December 10.

“We have been very public about it for the past three years or so, but in the years before that it was very private and painful – and there was a lot of shame involved which anyone going through infertility will be familiar with.
“But we have been lucky. We are the very, very lucky ones.”
Lewis, originally from Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan, said it was harrowing watching his wife going through round after round of IVF which involved frequent injections and hormone treatment.
“We wanted a family, but frankly we didn’t think it was going to happen for us,” said Lewis, a freelance news presenter for BBC News and ITV News.
“In fact, I think we’d already emotionally moved on. We said to each other that this was going to be our last round [of IVF].
“And it was the last little embryo that we had left. We’d sent it off for testing and the results came back inconclusive, so we didn’t think it was going to work at all.
“But we’d come this far, so we made the decision to put the embryo back in and, unbelievably, it grew to become Sonny.”
