Rob Delaney to become a father again

Comic praises NHS following the heartbreak of losing his son

Rob Delaney has announced that he is to become a father for the fourth time.

The news of his wife Leah's pregnancy, which he broke on Twitter, comes five months after the death of their two-year-old son Henry, who had a brain tumour.

In a video, the Catastrophe star and co-creator praised the NHS on its 70th birthday and called for Americans to campaign for better healthcare.

He said: 'Our son Henry passed away in January of this year from cancer and he was a beautiful little boy from the moment he was born until the moment he died.

"And he benefited so much from the healthcare system here and so did we as his parents, because while we endured stress that was truly unbelievable, we didn't endure the financial stress of wondering, "are we going to be able to pay for this?"'
