Ben Fogle has become a father for the second time.

The TV presenter and his wife Marina Hunt - who he married in 2006 - have welcomed new daughter, Iona Fogle, and Ben took to social networking site twitter yesterday (26.05.11) to express his enjoy at the little one's arrival.

He tweeted: "Beautiful baby Iona Fogle was born today weighing 7lb 6oz. Daughter and mother are doing brilliantly. Father and son are eating ice cream.(sic)"

The former 'Castaway' star - who also has 17-month-old son Ludo with Marina - is currently hosting BBC Two show 'The Secrets of Scott's Hut', which sees him take part in an expedition to Antarctica to uncover the legendary Captain Scott's Hut.

The 37-year-old adventurer recently attended the royal wedding of Prince William and Princess Catherine on April 29 at London's Westminster Abbey, and last year he accompanied the Duke of Cambridge on a trip to Africa.

Ben filmed William visiting the Tusk Trust - a wildlife conservation charity he supports - and travelling through Botswana's countryside.

The trip came after the TV action man was diagnosed with a potentially fatal flesh-eating bug leishmaniasis in 2009 after he was bitten by a sand fly in Peru.
