Billie Faiers has revealed to MadeForMums that her baby Nelly will “definitely” have a part in the wedding ceremony when she marries fiancé Greg Shepherd next year.
Greg proposed to Billie when she was just over 20 weeks pregnant, in February, while they were on holiday in the Maldives.
After giving birth to her first baby in July, The Only Way Is Essex star told us that she’ll have an engagement party this month – and that’s when they’ll announce the wedding date.
And Nelly will definitely have a part to play in the ceremony, “whether she’s walking or not”.
“If she’s not then [her aunty] Samantha will probably hold her and carry her down the aisle,” Billie told us when she popped into MFM HQ for the launch of the Fisher-Price Discover your Way Campaign and the results of our big Play survey.
The 24-year-old new mum also told us she’s making sure she makes time for her fiancé – recently handing Nelly over Granny, so Billie could enjoy her first night out alone with Greg since having the baby.
“My mum moved in with me for the first 2 weeks, so it was really nice for her to spend a bit of time with Nelly on her own,” Billie said. “I can trust my mum with Nelly 100% so it was nice to have a bit of relaxing time.”
But the new mum admits that, on her ‘date night’ with Greg, she was still checking her phone for baby updates all the time and was “FaceTiming every 5 minutes”. We all do it, Billie!
