Josie Long becomes a mother for the first time

comedyJosie Long has become a mother for the first time.

Her partner Jonny Donahue – of comedy musical duo Jonny & The Baptists – tweeted a picture of himself holding his newborn, 6lb 14oz, daughter yesterday.

Last month they staged a show in which they sought advice on how to be a parent, and in an interview to promote it Long said: 'I hope that once we've had our little maternity period I can write another show, tour it, and we can travel as a family.

'I think having a baby will change our perspective and be difficult and new and unusual. And I embrace all of that.'

The couple met when Long saw Donahue performing the solo theatre show Every Brilliant Thing and asked him to collaborate on a new project abouta couple falling in love. And as they wrote the show, they fell in love for real.
