Binky Felstead and Josh ‘JP’ Patterson have finally revealed the baby name they’ve chosen for their daughter, who arrived on Monday 12th June.
The Made in Chelsea stars told HELLO! magazine that they’d chosen to call their newborn India Elizabeth, with the hyphenated surname Felstead-Patterson.
‘Having India has cemented us – even more than we were before,’ Josh told the title, whilst Binky agreed: ‘We’re a family now. She just loves cuddles, and everyone’s saying she looks like Josh but she has both our dark hair.’
The new mum, who gave birth at the Lindo Wing in Paddington, the same hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge welcomed her children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, added that she’d had a ‘dream labour’.
‘There was no screaming or crying and it wasn’t like in a movie,’ she explained. ‘It was all over very quickly.’
‘I burst into tears when she was born…,’ said Josh. ‘When you’ve seen your partner give birth you end up feeling emotions for them that you’ve never felt before. I can’t describe how much admiration I have for her for what she’s been through… it’s a new feeling in my heart.’
When India arrived earlier this month, Josh was first to announce the happy news online, taking to Instagram to share a gorgeous picture with his 381k followers of his little bundle of joy.
The 27-year-old reality star chose an artistic black and white shot of him and his new baby, with the camera positioned close up so as to only reveal his little one’s tiny hand.
Josh looks every inch the doting dad in the picture, holding his little girl close and captioning the image with an adorable message saying, ‘IM A DADDY 🙌🏼’.
The post was liked over 124k times in 11 hours, with many fans commenting with messages of congratulations and support.
One social media user wrote: ‘Aww! Congratulations to you and @binkyfelstead! So happy for you both ♥♥♥’
Whilst another shared their excitement, saying: ‘BINKY HAD HER BABY!!!!’
A third agreed, commenting: ‘Soo happy for you both, that your little one has arrived safe n sound…Your little bundle is as precious as life itself.. Congratulations xxxxxxxx’.
Binky confirmed her pregnancy earlier this year and is set to star in a new Made In Chelsea spin-off show that will follow her and boyfriend Josh’s parenthood journey.
Previously speaking to OK! magazine, the 26-year-old star Binky revealed she was ‘over the moon’ to share this new chapter of her life with fans.
‘I couldn’t be more excited, I’m looking forward to showing our journey with our very loyal viewers who have been great since day one.’
