Congratulations to blogger extraordinaire John Heald who today finds that he is a father. It is not a surprise: he – and more importantly his wife Heidi – have been expecting it.
As with most things in John’s life, and as anyone who has read his blogs will know, it has been documented in intimate and sometimes painful detail for the past nine months. His thousands of followers have been treated to daily disclosures about “The Thingy.”
Well The Thingy now has a name. She is Kye, which according to John means “beautiful ocean.” And she was a healthy seven pounds when she came into the world this morning.
John, from Southend on Sea in Essex, is Carnival Cruises’ senior cruise director, and is single-handedly responsible for starting a host of cruise-related blogs, including this one.
His daily dispatches can be hilarious insights into life on board ship, and they can be excruciating revelations of an extremely personal nature.
He says it will be Sunday before he can compose himself to blog about his first-born. I can’t wait.
