Made in Chelsea stars Binky Felstead and Josh 'JP' Patterson have shared their daughter India's first birthday celebrations with HELLO! magazine. The couple held a festival-style party – dubbed 'kidchella'at a country house in Surrey – complete with a paddling pool, bouncy castle and a craft station. "I came up with the Coachella theme because I’m quite boho in the way I dress and I’m quite chilled and India has been brought up in the same way," Binky told HELLO!. "I make daisy chains in her hair and she’s a country girl – we’re both country girls, so it was a dream kind of party. It was by far the best party I have been to and I probably ever will." The party was attended by some of Binky’s former co-stars on the show, including Louise Thompson, while the birthday girl wore a white dress gifted to her by Ollie Locke.

India is a very well-loved little girl!

Binky told HELLO! that the becoming a mother to India had totally transformed her. "It’s been the most incredible year of my life,” she said. I was so nervous but excited to meet India and scared that my life would be so different and I wouldn’t be able to do half the things I am doing. But it turns out that nothing has changed that much – but I have something so exciting to wake up to in the mornings and I’m enjoying every step of the way. I am now striving to be the best person and do as much as I can for that little girl and give her the best upbringing and best life. Obviously I don’t want to spoil her, but I want to give her everything that I had, so a beautiful house in the country, animals and to be the happiest girl on the planet."
