Jamie Yeo confirms birth of baby boy who arrived 'a little early'

Local celebrity Jamie Yeo, 39, confirmed the birth of her son in an Instagram post earlier today (Sep 24).

Luke was born almost a month ago on Aug 29, "a little early at 35 weeks, but healthy and at a respectable 2.35kg", said the television host.

She shared a picture of her and her 38-year-old husband, Rupert, looking down upon their newborn son, and wrote: "After 3 weeks getting spoilt by the amazing world class nurses and docs in the HD ward of SGH our little man Luke is finally home!"

Yeo, who announced that she had gotten married and was five months pregnant earlier in June, also expressed her gratitude for the medical personnel who attended to her during her month-long hospitalisation.

She added: "Special mention to Prof Yong Tze Tein! We could not have asked for a cooler or more competent gynea!

"Now we're finally looking forward to bonding time at home for all the family."

Yeo had earlier revealed that she met Rupert, a British expatriate who works at a consultancy firm, on Tinder and said yes to his proposal after eight months of dating.

She has a daughter, Alysia, from her second marriage to British expatriate Thorsten Nolte.

She first married to radio host Glenn Ong in 2004, before they split in 2009.
