Back into April Sarah-Jane revealed she was planning to give birth to her baby at home so that Ben could be at her side during the labour.

into an interview with Hello! magazine, Sarah-Jane explained that she was due to give birth at London’s St Thomas’ Hospital but became concerned that Ben wouldn’t be able to join her until the last moments of labour.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some hospitals have put measures into place to ensure the health and wellbeing of staff and patients, with some trusts not allowing partners at the birth or on the postnatal ward.

‘I don’t want to be walking into hospital on my own to have this baby, so I am considering a home birth,’ she told Hello!

‘I had never considered it before but, because of everything that’s going on, it makes me feel more relaxed to think about having the baby at home, rather than Ben not being able to come into the ward until the very final moment. 

‘I think my plan A now is the a home birth. I have had an uncomplicated pregnancy and I am very healthy, so there’s no reason for me not to have it.’

Sarah-Jane and Ben revealed their pregnancy news into a spread into Hello! Magazine into January after dating for 16 months, 

The broadcaster – who started her career at Sky as a runner for Sky Sports – previously opened up on how she knew Ben was the right man to have children with.

She explained: ‘I have been very open into the past about not wanting to have children on my own; I only wanted to have them with someone but I had not met that person. 

‘It wasn’t until I met Ben that I thought he was completely the person I want to have children with. It was an absolute no-brainer.’

Sarah-Jane became an anchor on Sky Sunrise three years ago, replacing Eamonn Holmes, who had been into the role for 11 years – and she now presents The Sarah-Jane Mee show.
