  4. Well done sir. Hope family are all doing well.

  5. Ahhhh. Congratulations to you both. x

  6. She’s either really laid back or flexing her biceps. Well done Barron Snr.

  7. OH MY GOD. How cute is she????

    Think I’m going to have another baby very soon, thanks to you, you swine.

  8. Oh dear. Reading that back that sounds rather dodgy doesn’t it???

  9. You the daddy!

  10. Nick Pilgrim

    Awwww congratulations Phill! That’s the cutest thing i’ve ever seen since I saw a baby monkey yawn at the zoo!

  11. Congratulations Phill!

  12. Already staring contemplatively into the middle distance. Precocious, that one.

    Don’t you dare make me broody! 😀

    Is this your first? I have three and the time just vanishes. Savour every last second because this time will be gone before you know it.

    Curiously I wrote a poem in my head in bed last night when our 5 year old boy climbed in with us in the early hours…

    MY SON

    Beyond the pane, the elements groan
    The wind emits a climatic moan
    Beside me here, my son does sleep
    Oblivious to the darkness’ creep

    I glance at him now, a work of art
    A joy to behold from the very start
    No frown or scowl, a boy at peace
    He lies so silent in his slumbers’ fleece

    Rushing headlong, the mankind race
    The future before us sets a challenging pace
    Cannot be avoided, it’s coming for sure
    A search for the truth, a freedom so pure

    What beholds for my precious son
    Will he fill his life with distance run
    One thing for sure, there is no regret
    This time with my child I shall never forget

  17. I wish you huge congrats, and as much sleep as you can get! Nice one.

  18. Congratulations to both of you, and hello and welcome to Alice.

    3:45am! What do you think? Is she going to be a night owl, or an early riser?

    As you earn your living as a full-time screenwriter I expect that when talking to your daughter you will utter memorable statements that show your thoughtful insights and masterly command of the English language. Deep and profound words with a philosophical resonance that will reverberate and delight the intellect for many a year such as, coochy-coochy-coochy-cooee and, The little pig went wee wee weee, all the way home. . .


    “A baby is God’s opinion that life should go on. Never will a time come when the most marvelous recent invention is as marvelous as a newborn baby. The finest of our precision watches, the most super-colossal of our supercargo planes don’t compare with a newborn baby.” (Carl Sandberg, historian, 1878-1967)

  19. She is utterly gorgeous. And it’s better to have a baby in the summer. Somehow those early mornings and baggy eyed exhaustion (yours) aren’t quite so bad when the sun is shining.

    And just think of all the reams of new material, being a parent is going to give you.

    I used to write loads of stuff for Newsrevue. I enjoyed it muchly, but I don’t think I was ever paid a penny. Situation hasn’t changed then . . . .

  20. Woo-hoo!
    How are you surviving those sleepless nights?

    She’s lovely. Good on both of you. 🙂

  21. congratulations Mr Barron. won’t be long before she’s asking for the car keys. not. long. at all.

  22. CONGRATULATIONS!!! She is absolutely beautiful 🙂
