George Galloway, 65, and his wife Putri, 35, welcomes a baby girl



George Galloway has welcomed his sixth child, after his wife Putri Gayatri Pertiwi gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday.

The former MP, 65, took to Twitter to announce his daughter’s arrival, and revealed both wife Putri, 35, and their bundle of joy were doing well.

This is George and Putri’s third child together since they married in 2012, as he’s also dad to three children from his previous marriages.

George tweeted: ‘We are delighted to announce the natural home-birth of our third child -a girl – at 1.41am -8lbs 6oz.

‘Mother and baby are both doing well. Pictures later! She has three brothers and two sisters by the grace of God. Huge thanks to the truly wonderful midwives Karen and Lucy.’

In March George announced that he and Putri were expecting their third child together, tweeting: ‘By the Grace of God there should be another New Galloway along in the summer.

‘By His Grace @gayatrigalloway and I are expecting our third child (my sixth) and we are truly grateful.’
