Holly Willoughby has given birth to her third child
Congrats Holly Willoughby!
Although it seems as though she’s been pregnant for EVER, the 33-year-old finally gave birth to a baby boy last night. Announcing her happy news via Twitter, Holly also revealed her newborn’s name, saying: ‘I’m sooo happy to tell you all – we’ve just had a baby boy! Chester William Baldwin made a grand entrance at 8lbs 12. He’s just perfect. X‘
This is Holly’s third child with TV producer hubby Dan Baldwin. The pair already have a five-year-old son, Harry, and a three-year-old daughter, Belle.
Her This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield tweeted last night: ‘Had a lovely phone call from @hollywills tonight. Congratulations gorgeous and welcome Chester William Baldwin …. 8lbs 12 blimey!‘
The presenter isn’t the only celebrity to name her son Chester, which by the way, goes back to Latin times and means ‘fortress, walled town’.
Former Big Brother presenter Davina McCall, also has an eight-year-old called Chester Mickey and even Hollywood A-listers, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, chose the unusual name for their now 24-year-old son.
Holly announced her pregnancy in March, having already admitted to feeling ‘broody’ for another child, maintaining that it was just a ‘question of when and if’.
The curvy blonde, who won the Celebrity Mum Of The Year award in 2011, continued to keep her spot on the This Morning sofa alongside Phillip Schofield only heading off for maternity leave earlier this month.
Holly chose not to find out the gender of her baby before he was born.
She said earlier this year: ‘I really have no idea. It’s weird with your third. Having had one of each and both pregnancies having been pretty much the same, hand on heart, I really don’t mind if I have a boy or girl.
‘I’m lucky to have one of each, anyway. They’re both wonderful. What will be will be.’
