Lady Hoy, a lawyer, is the official ambassador of Bliss Scotland, a charity for babies born premature or sick.
She became unwell at 27 weeks while pregnant with Callum who had to be delivered early. He weighed just 2lbs 2oz when he was born in October 2014 and spent 60 days in neonatal care but is now a thriving toddler. As far as the couple know he has suffered no long-term effects from his early arrival and is “absolutely and utterly perfect”.
