Nicky Hilton and James Rothschild have welcomed their first child

As the source told ET, Lily came in weighing 7 and a half pounds.

It was revealed in January that Nicky and James were expecting their first child, just six months after their lavish summer wedding at Kensington Palace. The couple were said to be "over the moon" at the news, with a source telling People: "Nicky is very excited to become a mom, she is feeling great!"


The socialite wowed with her flawless maternity style throughout her pregnancy, and made a number of stylish appearances at events including the FIT Awards and Foundation Fighting Blindness world gala in New York.

The couple married in July

The new arrival caps off an incredible 12 months for Nicky and James, who tied the knot in front of their family and friends at The Orangery in Kensington Palace in July. The beautiful bride stunned in a bespoke lace Valentino dress, and enlisted her sister Paris Hilton as her maid of honour.

Paris has previously described her sister and brother-in-law as the perfect couple, telling People: "They're so loyal and so in love. They're like a prince and princess. I think it's important to find someone you trust and love and spent the rest of your life.

"I think that's the meaning of life; to get married and have a family."

Nicky and James first met at the wedding of Petra and James Stunt in August 2011, with the heiress later saying it was love at first sight. James popped the question three years later during a romantic holiday to Lake Como in August 2014, presenting his wife-to-be with an incredible five-carat Asscher cut diamond ring.
