Lydia welcomed little Loretta Rose into the world on 21 February, and introduced her new daughter in an exclusive photoshoot and interview with HELLO!, Loretta, who weighed in at 7lbs 11 when she arrived on Friday 21 February, is "a dream child", said the star, inviting HELLO! into the home she is currently refurbishing complete with a nursery, with a pram-style cot, opulent chandelier and pink ball-pit, which is fit for a princess.

What's more, Lydia opened up about the meaning behind her newborn's gorgeous name, saying: "Her name is very special. I had all these names written down and I said, I'm just gonna wait until she's born and decide which one suits her best. And Loretta suits her best and also it's got lovely meaning to it." Lydia continued: "My mum and dad's favourite song is At Last by Etta James, so it is obviously short for Loretta. And also my grandfather is from a place in Italy called Loreto. And so her name is the same as Loreto, but just ends slightly differently."

"I'm still on a massive high at the moment. I'm not even struggling with the sleep! I'm loving the night feeds," Lydia gushed. "That's my favourite time. I sit there breastfeeding and I just stare at her. I definitely feel like I've been blessed with a dream child."
