Vanessa Feltz has become a grandmother.

The broadcaster and Strictly Come Dancing star has revealed that her first grandchild, a boy, was born on January 13.

The BBC Radio 2 host printed snaps of the newborn to show to photographers outside Broadcasting House, Mail Online reported.

She also tweeted a picture of the baby, born to her daughter Allegra Benitah, 27, and son-in-law Dan, with the caption "we are a grandparent".

Vanessa, 51, raised eyebrows when she told OK! magazine last October that she wanted to breastfeed the baby.

'I can't breathe with excitement. I want to shout it from the rooftops," she said.

'I'm not mad and I know it's a funny thing to come out with, but I want to breastfeed the baby.

"I just think that I'm going to love this child so much that when it cries I'm going to get that sensation in my breasts and they may produce milk."
