The first Apprentice baby has been born, one year after contestants Michaela Wain and Harrison Jones found love on the boardroom series.

Michaela confirmed the arrival of baby boy Grayson on Tuesday, saying their little heart breaker was delivered over the weekend after a tough ride.

The 34-year-old, who previously overcame 15 miscarriages to start a family, already has an eight-year-old son (confusingly named Harrison) from a previous relationship.

Its been a tough ride, Michaela wrote. But Im super happy to say Grayson George Jones arrived 23/10/18 weighing 7lb2 and looking like a heart breaker. Absolutely in love.

Bolton businesswoman Michaela was a single mum when she joined the show and said she didnt think a successful pregnancy would happen again for her, after a total of 15 miscarriages.

She was open about her fertility struggles when talking about son Harrison last November, revealing to OK! magazine that she had six miscarriages before welcoming her first child and nine afterwards.

Michaela explained: I dont find it difficult to get pregnant, but Ive had 15 miscarriages in total.

I had six labours before I had Harrison, and they were giving me medicine to try and slow them down. So when he arrived, it was such a blessing.

She added: I was always hopeful I could get pregnant again after him – my mum kept saying that “your body has done it once, it can happen again” – but it doesnt look like its meant to be again. At some point, Ill try again.
