Not ruling out the prospect of another child, she added: ‘Who knows there may be another in the future. I can’t imagine living the rest of my life not being a mum.’

Dr Zoe welcomed her son Lisbon Lion at home with Stuart who helped to deliver the baby after Zoe went into labour 10 days early. 

Reflecting on the improvised home birth, Zoe said: ‘We didn’t have a hospital bag packed, I didn’t have a birthing lesson… 

‘We were pumping water from the bath downstairs into the pool, using pots and pans to make it hot.’

She continued: ‘The midwife wasn’t there! We planned to have a midwife but things progressed so quickly. I went into labour at midnight and he was born around 10.30.

‘The midwife didn’t get there until 25 minutes after,’ she added. 

Zoe explained that she got through the unexpected labour by thinking ‘stay calm, stay relaxed and everything will be fine’.

Zoe looked radiant in a red turtle neck dress as she revealed how her opinions on how she wanted to have her baby changed. 

She said: ‘I did 6 months of obstetrics as a GP and I always had a medical view of childbirth. I wanted a c section because I thought it was safer, but as I got pregnant Dr. Zoe got quiet and mummy Zoe came forward…’

And Dr Zoe appeared ready to spring back in action as the medical professional did squats while cradling baby Lisbon to stop him crying.

Of new parenthood, she said: ‘We are good, we are amazing. A bit more sleep would be great but we’re loving it.’

The couple revealed they decided to name their son, who weighed eight pounds, Lisbon as they met in Portugal 20 months ago.

Stuart explained: ‘The first part is easy. We met in Lisbon 20 months ago and that was on the list of names right from the beginning.      

Zoe added: ‘Lion, we always associate our relationship with lions, mummy lion, daddy lion, so we thought he’s our little lion.’
