While Lydia was clearly excited about the new additions, she revealed it was a bittersweet moment as she will miss having company now she has moved back into her own home, which she renovated shortly before she gave birth to Loretta. "It does mean there is no more room at the inn," she said. "So me and Loretta have finally moved to our house. Going to miss being with my family all day, every day. But I am going to walk past the house daily for chats through the window."

Lydia welcomed her baby girl in February

Little Loretta weighed in at 7lbs 11 when she arrived on Friday 21 February, and proud new mum Lydia previously told HELLO! she is "a dream child". The reality star also opened up about the sweet meaning behind her daughter's name. "Her name is very special," she began. "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."
