It’s a Boy!

Posted By Darren Rowse 15th of June 2008 ProBlogger Site News 0 Comments

I’m excited to announce that at 2am this morning V gave birth to our second son – Henri.

He’s 7 pounds 14 ounces (3.59kg) and so far is a very content little guy. Here are a couple of pictures from this morning and last night.


Both mother and baby are doing well after a long day – and dad’s not doing too badly either!


I’m Taking Some Paternity Leave

I will be taking a couple of weeks off now however I’ve pre-prepared two great weeks of content here at ProBlogger for you. It will include a guest post each day from some great bloggers, a series of 10 posts from me on ‘how to let your blog go’ and a few other random posts from me that I’ve written earlier.

Lara will also be moderating comments and will make posts if any breaking news happens that she thinks is relevant to you.

PS: Thanks to everyone for your well wishes. I hadn’t realized that today in many parts of the world it’s Father’s Day! Here in Australia we celebrate it in September – but I’m more than happy to claim it as being Father’s Day here today too (although I think V’s much more deserving of a special day of recognition after 20 hours of labor)! Thanks again all!
