She must be pretty used to popping out children after number three was born this week.
And it looks like Holly Willoughby has got giving birth down to a fine art with the arrival of newborn son Chester on Monday.
The ‘This Morning’ star has revealed she had a water birth for the first time – and she left her husband in awe after surviving the pains of labour with no drugs.
TV producer hubby Dan Baldwin took to Twitter to announce the birth of his son and jokingly proclaim his respect for his wife, posting:
The 33-year-old spoke for the first time since welcoming the little one into the world when she phoned up co-host Philip Schofield on This Morning.
She said: “I’m very, very happy. We had a very exciting evening. I started having contractions at about 9am [yesterday morning] and they kind of lasted all day and he arrived about 7.20pm. And it was very different from my other two – I had a water birth which I never thought I’d do and that was amazing.
“And he was a really big boy – 8lbs 12oz! But he’s perfect. He’s so delicious, I can’t stop looking at him.”
The new mum explained they’d had the name Chester William planned for a while.
She added: “It was a name we had for ages actually – when we had Harry, we were umming and ahhing over Chester or Harry although they [Harry and Belle] met their brother today and Harry walked in and I said ‘his name is Chester’ and Harry said ‘No, I want to call him Frank’… so it might be Frank!”
When asked how the family was getting on, Holly said they are all enjoying being in a “lovely baby bubble”. She said: “Everybody’s absolutely fine – we’re just in that lovely baby bubble and it’s just wonderful and I can’t wait for you to meet him. He’s with me now and being very good.”
Taking to her Twitter page after giving birth, Holly wrote: “I’m sooo happy to tell you all – we’ve just had a baby boy! Chester William Baldwin made a grand entrance at 8lbs 12. He’s just perfect. X”
We LOVE the name.
Well done Holly!
Chester is the couple’s third child after seven-year-old Harry and three-year-old Belle and if his gorgeous mama is anything to go by, we bet he is a right cutie.
After announcing the happy news Holly was soon inundated with messages from excited fans and celeb friends, securing her spot as one of the most popular people on television.
The Saturdays Rochelle Humes as well as Holly’s TV partner Phillip Schofield and her on-screen replacement Amanda Holden were just a few of the names to offer their congratulations:
