His grandmother Michele Allen announced on Wednesday: “Meet my gorgeous grandson Parker Cameron James Dixon (PC J Dixon) born today 12.47pm xx”.

In January, hundreds of PC Dixon’s colleagues from Thames Valley Police joined his then-pregnant widow Samantha for the popular officer’s funeral in Pangbourne.

Mrs Dixon said at the time the family were “truly heartbroken and devastated by his loss”.

She added: “He was a loving husband, excited father-to-be, caring son and brother and genuine friend to many.

“His death leaves behind a hole that can never and will never be filled. He will be missed forever and never forgotten.”

PC Dixon, known as “Dixie” to his friends, was on a training exercise when his motorcycle collided with a car on the A4 Bath Road, near Hare Hatch, in December.
