Sharing adorable photos of the youngster, he shared the news with his 10,500 followers on October 2.
“I’m away from the airwaves for a while to spend a little more time with this ray of light,” he explained.
“A handful of major surgeries in his first 15 months and luckily he barely flinched and really helped us keep going.”
Rachel Burden presents 5 Live’s Breakfast Show and Rick Edwards has been co-hosting with her since November.
The Wake Up To Money segment of the show focuses on the world of personal finance and gives the latest updates on financial markets around the world.
