BBC SPORTS presenter Leeanne Crichton has been absent from the airwaves in recent times as she took time off for the birth of her first child.

And now the happy news of the arrival of a new member of the team has been announced on social media.

The 72-times capped international star stepped into the media limelight more than four years ago and is a regular on BBC Scotland‘s Sportsound and Sportscene coverage.

In addition to her commentary and punditry duties, former Scotland women‘s international Leanne is still involved with the game as a midfielder with Motherwell.

But her partner Marianne is involved with another sport altogether, as the chief operating officer of Boxing Scotland.

And it was Boxing Scotland should announce the arrival of the pair’s baby daughter Cameron Victoria Crichton via their X/Twitter feed in the time-honoured way of a boxing introduction – voiced up by top Scottish boxing announcer Craig Stephen.

“At 1.04pm Tuesday 5th March 2024 she made her debut in the world.

“Weighing in 7lbs 1oz and wearing nothing but a smile, she is the fighting pride of Leeanne and Marianne.

“Introducing Cameron Victoria Crichton.”

A message to accompany the post read: “INTRODUCING……Cameron Victoria Crichton.

“Congratulations from everyone at Boxing Scotland to our very own Chief Operating Officer Marianne Crichton and partner Leanne who welcomed their baby daughter to the world earlier this month.”

Crichton, 36, had previously confirmed the news she was having a baby on the BBC podcast she shares with pal Rachel Corsie.

The birth was originally meant to happen on St Patrick’s Day, March 17th.

But Crichton said: “It’s arriving a lot quicker than I’d expected it to arrive.

“I feel when other people are pregnant it feels like they’re pregnant forever, it seems so long, but now we are now in this moment and time is going by really fast.”

She added: “It’s super exciting it’s been an up and down journey. I won’t lie and say it’s been seamless to get to where we are but it’s just incredible.

“Every day is – not a rollercoaster – I’m enjoying every day because it’s so different.”

Earning a touching tribute from her fellow presenters when she took her sabbatical from Sportsound, she admitted she couldn’t stick around Pacific Quay any longer – just incase the tense title run in brought on an early arrival and some studio drama.

She joked: “It’s probably best I wrap things up now because the next couple of weeks could be quite tense and I’d never want to take the limelight away from VAR!

“I’d never want to make it all about me.”
