Proud mum Billie shared a sweet shot of her newborn being carried out of hospital
Billie announced her pregnancy back in September last year with a sweet snapshot featuring the couple's twp-year-old daughter, Nelly. In the photo, Nelly can be seen looking delighted as she points to her mum’s tummy. Billie captioned the photo: “And then there were four.”
The 26-year-old has previously opened up about wanting more children, telling the MailOnline: "We desperately want a sibling for Nelly sooner rather than later. I feel like with Greg, it's so much more fun for him now that she is old enough that he can play with her and take her out."
EXCLUSIVE: Billie and Samantha Faiers talk motherhood
The new arrival makes Nelly a big sister
The new addition to the Faiers family will not only give Nelly a younger brother, but Billie’s nephew, Paul, will have another cousin to play with! Earlier this year Billie and her sister Samantha Faiers spoke exclusively to HELLO! about motherhood. "I think it's so rewarding being a mum. It's little things, I think just how rewarding it is," she said. Sam agreed. "It's just watching them learn and grow.". "Especially at the age Paul is at now, even yesterday at Mum he was drawing on a piece of paper." Speaking of Nelly and Paul’s bond, Billie said: "They're so cute together. They chase each other, they laugh, they giggle. In the bath the other night, they were splashing and were hysterical. We could cry watching them!"
