TV presenter Terri Seymour proudly presents her daughter Coco in this week's HELLO!. "The love you feel is beyond anything I've ever felt before," says the celebrity interviewer for US entertainment show Extra. "I'd been told about it, but it really is the most incredible bond and power I've ever experienced."
Coco's father, Terri's model boyfriend Clark Mallon was at the birth on 9 March at the Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

British-born Terri, 40, reveals she gave birth naturally, something she considers herself fortunate to have been able to do. "I was over the moon there wasn't a Caesarean, to be honest," says Terri. "At one point they were worried I would need one as I'd been pushing for a long time. But things came together and it went as planned.
"You just cannot describe the experience of giving birth and they were right. It's very surreal and no matter what people tell you, words can't really describe it. I'm actually so thankful I got to experience it."
Their daughter's name was an immediate hit, says the new mum, who will soon be returning to the red carpet to work with Extra.
"We pretty much called her Coco as soon as we found out we were expecting a girl," she tells us. "Clark was calling my bump Coco from the very beginning."
Among the first guests to visit are Terri's former boyfriend Simon Cowell and girlfriend Lauren Silverman – and their 14-month-old son Eric.
"We're really looking forward to meeting up," Terri told HELLO!. "They can't wait to meet Coco and introduce her to Eric.
"I have to thank Sharon Osbourne, too. She sent over the most beautiful clothes for Coco – one was a stunning little dress with cherries all over it. She's always so generous with her gifts and I'm always amazed. She has a great eye. Sharon and [her daughter] Kelly will be coming over to meet her, too."
