MILLIE Mackintosh has given birth to her first child – a baby girl with her husband Hugo Taylor.
She gave birth last Friday to a baby girl weighing seven pounds.
The proud parents told Hello! magazine: “We are delighted to announce the arrival of our darling girl who arrived on Friday 1 May at 1:21pm, weighing a very healthy seven pounds.
“We are eternally grateful to the doctors, nurses and midwives for taking such good care of us.
“Mum and baby are both doing incredibly well and we are looking forward to bringing our daughter home and spending time together as a family.”
She wrote on Instagram: “With a little under 8 weeks to go until our daughter is due to arrive, the situation the world finds itself in with Coronavirus is very much a concern.
“Even though I’m fully aware that worrying gets you nowhere, it’s understandable to be anxious about my baby arriving during this time, our natural instinct is to protect!”
Millie continued: “The final pregnancy stretch brings with it a whole wave of emotions and as I’m trying to get into nesting mode, the world around me is in panic mode!

“I certainly didn’t envision my daughter arriving into the world during the throes of a pandemic, however that is where we are and instead of resisting it and causing internal personal panic I am trying to embrace the uncertainty by taking each day as it comes and enjoying this enforced maternity leave.”
The star told her 1.3m followers that she was planning on spending the rest of her pregnancy remaining in doors as much as possible doing home work outs, “watching all the TV on my to watch list, cooking my favourite comfort foods, reading, organising the house for our daughters arrival and spending quality time with Hugo.”
