After years of trying and five gruelling attempts at IVF treatment, most couples would have given up any hope of ever having a baby.

But David and Victoria Prever are this week celebrating the birth of a 7lb 4oz boy after being treated by Britain's most controversial fertility expert, Mohammed Taranissi.

David, 41, the Smooth FM breakfast show host, and chef Victoria, wrote a regular column in the JC, charting their IVF journey.

But earlier this year Victoria stunned friends by announcing she was pregnant and baby Barnaby was born by emergency C-section at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington.

"I was so emotional meeting him," said Victoria, 39. "We both cried and cried and cried. It's
unbelievable."

David, of Muswell Hill, North London, said: "We just weren't ready to stop."
