A YouTuber is looking forward to spending his first Father’s Day with his "little miracle" baby son who was eight years in the making.

Tim Lindon, aged 43, and wife Gaby, a singer and actress, were told they needed IVF after years of trying for a baby.

On their second attempt the Great Yarmouth couple found out they were going to be parents and their "absolutely perfect" son was born earlier this year.

Mr Lindon is known for his Walk With Me Tim YouTube channel which has close to 80,000 subscribers, some of his videos reaching audiences of over 500,000.

He is sharing his story about the impact of infertility on men ahead of Father's Day, and is mindful that not everyone gets the same happy outcome.

He said: “I wanted it to happen naturally to be honest, I didn’t want to go down the IVF route.

“But after years of trying and feeling that the clock was ticking, we thought we had better do something about it.”
