Lewis Vaughan Jones Hannah Vaughan Jones IVF
Prior to welcoming their son, Matheson Calon Tallett Vaughan Jones or “Sonny,” Lewis and his wife spent years trying to conceive and even documented the stark realities of their IVF journey on YouTube. They had gone through 15 rounds of IVF. But in 2019, just before Christmas the couple announced the arrival of Sonny.
“We’ve been through many years of heartache, but we’ve got the best Christmas present at the end of it all,” said Hannah.
“We have been very public about it for the past three years or so, but in the years before that it was very private and painful – and there was a lot of shame involved which anyone going through infertility will be familiar with.”
“But we have been lucky. We are the very, very lucky ones.”
Lewis also said it was harrowing watching his wife going through round after round of IVF which involved frequent injections and hormone treatment.
“We wanted a family, but frankly we didn’t think it was going to happen for us,” said Lewis.
“In fact, I think we’d already emotionally moved on. We said to each other that this was going to be our last round [of IVF].”
“And it was the last little embryo that we had left. We’d sent it off for testing and the results came back inconclusive, so we didn’t think it was going to work at all.”
“But we’d come this far, so we made the decision to put the embryo back in and, unbelievably, it grew to become Sonny.”
The couple said they spent around £80,000 on private IVF treatment after being given one round for free on the NHS in England.

Lewis Vaughan Jones Hearing Loss
In 2018, Lewis suddenly lost the hearing in his left ear. He had good hearing all his life until he got a cold and couldn’t hear in one ear. Doctors found his left eardrum was no longer working and the nerve which takes sound to the brain had given up, he told BBC Breakfast.
When the doctors told him the sudden hearing loss and the tinnitus were permanent, he walked out of hospital “completely bamboozled.” “That was the darkest moment,” he told BBC Radio 5 live.
Lewis also spoke of his embarrassment in social situations and the difficulties of coming to terms with a hearing aid. “There’s only so many times you can interrupt. You feel embarrassed so you withdraw,” he said.
He also described how he would smile and nod along when spending time with friends and family, feeling unable to engage and as though he was missing out.
His hearing aid, he said, has been a massive help, allowing him to return to work. However, his return to screen, was a noisy one as he could hear the director and correspondents through an earpiece in his right ear and an amplified, distorted version of his own voice through the hearing aid in his left. The brain should learn to quieten down that distortion, he said.
Getting used to wearing a hearing aid has not come easy. “I was self-conscious about it. My hair is slightly longer so that’s a reflection that I might have been trying to hide it,” he added.
Now back on air, he wants to show everyone he is wearing one. “There’s no logical reason why I shouldn’t wear my hearing aid on air and feel good about it,” he said.
