Who is Steph McGovern’s partner? Mystery girlfriend who BBC Breakfast presenter shares baby with

STEPH McGovern is a British television presenter best known for her work on BBC Breakfast, Shop Well for Less, Watchdog Live and now Steph's Packed Lunch on Channel 4.

The 38-year-old journalist has been settling into life as a new mum with her partner - here's what we know about her girlfriend.

Who is Steph McGovern's girlfriend?

Not much is known about Steph's girlfriend, except that she is a TV executive for the BBC and the pair live in Yorkshire together.

The low-key presenter likes to protect her private life and the identity of her partner.

A source told The Sun that Steph "values her privacy too much" so we shouldn't be holding our breath for "any magazine shoots any time soon."

All we do know about Steph's girlfriend is that she's a telly executive.

And of course that the happy couple have had their first child together.

When did Steph McGovern have her baby?

On November 8, 2019 Steph revealed she had given birth to a baby girl.

She tweeted: "Well hello world, just surfaced to let you know that we now have a daughter!

"Born on Monday morning just as @BBCBreakfast was wrapping up. We’re all fine and dandy. Just getting used to the eau de sick/poo I am now regularly wearing. #babylife."

She is the star's first child with her television executive girlfriend.

Is Steph McGovern leaving BBC Breakfast and what did she say about being a mum?

On January 21, 2020, Steph took a break from maternity leave to return to BBC Breakfast but only to say an official goodbye to the programme.

She is moving to Channel 4 for The Steph Show.

Speaking about becoming a first-time mother, Steph said: "Working on this programme definitely prepares you for the hours that you do. When she wakes me up at 3am, I'm kind of used to that."

She quipped: "But it's like you're living with a tiny dictator, everything you know in your life is ruled by this little creature. Honestly, you think you look alright, and then the next minute you've got a bit of sick on you. But no she's fab and I'm really lucky. But I have a newfound respect for parents, definitely. I look at them now and go, wow, you look so together."
