Joy for would-be mother secretly given £9000 by George Michael for IVF treatment as she gives birth

Lynette Gillard has been desperately trying to have a baby for 13 years, with George donating the generous sum after seeing her try to win money for the treatment in a 2008 episode of Deal Or No Deal.

Gillard walked away from the game show with just £3,000.

However, Michael was moved by her fight to get pregnant and chose to give her the donation so she could pay for another round of IVF.

He contacted the bosses on the show on the strict condition that he remain anonymous in his donation.

Sadly each round of tests failed but the cash that was donated by George meant that she was able to go through some important tests and treatment for a condition that was preventing her from keeping a pregnancy.

However, the pair made a decision to try one last time but Gillard ended up conceiving naturally.

Her baby son Seth Logan George Hart was born two weeks ago, and Lynette had the Wham! star's music playing while she gave birth.

She explained: "I found out I was pregnant on the day he died".

"I hope he's looking down smiling, knowing I have what I've always longed for", she told the Sun newspaper.

Almost ten years later, she has given birth to a healthy baby boy with the help of George's generous gift - and named her son after the famous singer who sadly passed away in December 2016.

"I found out I was pregnant on the day he died".

'The first time I held my little boy I said thank you to George.

"His songs were playing on the radio when we went for our first scan and when I was in labour".

"I feel that George has been with me every step of the way", she added.
