Carly, who’s the wife of Liverpool and England footballer Joe Cole, gave birth last month after keeping her pregnancy well under wraps. We first spotted pictures of Carly with a bump on the same day that Harrison’s birth was announced!
“I love being a mum,” Carly tells Hello! “Sometimes I wake up and I still can’t quite believe it, that I have these two beautiful children.”
Although it sounds like they are going to have their hands full. “He’s so strong, as soon as he came out he was trying to lift his little head. I think he’s going to be inquisitive, like his big sister and if he’s got even half her energy, I’m going to be on the go all the time!”
The celebrity couple admit that they have learnt plenty of important parenting lessons from having their daughter. “[With Ruby] I didn’t want to admit I was struggling because I thought that would mean I’d failed.”
“I was so desperate to be the perfect mum, I ended up getting so stressed and slipping into bad habits and that wasn’t good for any of us,” says Carly.
Here’s hoping that with baby Harrison, or Harry as he is becoming known, they will be avoiding those pitfalls.
Congratulations, Joe and Carly!
