Holby City star now mum to new daughter
Holby City star Tina Hobley has given birth to a baby daughter at London’s private Portland Hospital.
The little girl, weighing in at 7lb 3oz, has been name Olivia Kitty Alice.
Olivia is 35-year-old Tina’s second child. Daughter Isabella, 9, was born during the actress’s first marriage to Steve Wallington.
Proud new dad is Oli Wheeler, a PR director, who became Tina’s second husband 2 years ago.
‘We are both truly ecstatic and looking forward to now being a family of four,’ Oli tells the Sunday Mirror.
Tina stayed looking trim all through her pregnancy and only put on around 1½st.
When she was pregnant with Isabella, who was born in April 1999, she put on 4st. It was photos of her looking frumpy on the beach that spurred her to work out this time round.
‘She hired a personal trainer and was working out right until the birth,’ a source tells Now. ‘She was eating all the right foods such as chicken, fish and salads and tried to drink as much water as possible.
‘She’s rejoining Holby in six weeks, so she wants to be in perfect shape.’
Tina’s blissfully happy in her second marriage, which has added to her contentment.
‘She and Oli are like peas in a pod. I’ve never seen two people more in love,’ reveals our source.
‘Oli’s a calming influence. He has a great relationship with Isabella and he’s even good friends with Steve, Tina’s first husband. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a pregnancy go so smoothly.’

Tina gave birth in the country’s most exclusive maternity ward. The Portland Hospital is a favourite with A-listers Brooklyn and Romeo Beckham were both delivered there.
