Ferne McCann’s birth date:
Ferne Alice McCann, born 6 August 1990
Ferne McCann’s child:
Sunday Skye McCann, born 2 November 2017
In April 2017, rumours began to swirl that Ferne, then 26, was pregnant with her 1st child with ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins.
He and Ferne began dating in 2016 but the couple’s split played out very publicly, as it was revealed Arthur had been arrested for perpetrating a horrific acid attack on party-goers outside an East London nightclub, and that Ferne was expecting.
On 24 April 2017, Ferne confirmed the news that she was pregnant in a teary interview on This Morning, just as she hit the 3-month mark.
Doing her best to enjoy her pregnancy, Ferne and her 13-week bump were spotted during a night out in Newcastle with her best pal, Geordie Shore‘s Vicky Pattinson.
Not long after, Ferne revealed that, at 4 months, she was suffering severe migraines – and asked fans for helpful remedies to get her through it.
Ferne kept fans up to speed with bumpdates – revealing her pregnancy tum at 7 months in a gorgeous bikini snap.
Sunday Skye McCann
Sunday Skye McCann was born on 2 November 2017, a week earlier than she was due. Ferne’s mum Gilly McCann joined her in the delivery room.
Ferne’s birthing position was on all fours, and she later told interviewers that she lost a lot of blood, and was shaking like crazy throughout.
All worth it, though – just take a look at the gorgeous first pic of mum and newborn, above!
We already know lots about life for baby Sunday, too…
She’s being pushed around in not one, not 2, but 3 prams: the Stokke Trailz, the Joolz Day2 and the CuddleCo Doona Travel System.
She’s also got quite the gender-neutral nursery – decked out in monochrome shades of grey, white and black, with a few wooden and mauve touches.
Ferne adjusts to motherhood
Ferne’s first 5 weeks with baby Sunday weren’t a walk in the park. She admitted in an interview for her TV special Ferne McCann: First Time Mum that she’d ‘cried every day’ since welcoming Sunday.
“There is not a day goes by that I haven’t cried. It’s for so many reasons, it’s because I’m scared, I feel lonely, I feel s***, I feel sad.”
She also confessed she doesn’t want people to think of her as a ‘single mum’.
What’s next for Ferne?
On 14 November 2017, Ferne’s ex Arthur was convicted of 5 counts of grievous bodily harm with intent, and 9 counts of actual bodily harm. He has yet to be sentenced, but is expected to serve significant jail time.
Ferne has confirmed in interviews that she has taken baby Sunday to see Arthur, but told the criminal that she won’t allow him to see Sunday again.
Things are looking up for the former TOWIE star, whose had her fair share of trials and tribulations in 2017:
She’s got a gorgeous baby girl, she’s living with her mum Gilly, she’s just had a super successful TV special go out and she’s back to doing regular bits for This Morning.
Oh, and she’ll be bringing her new mum knowledge to the MadeForMums Awards 2018, where she’ll join us as a very special guest products judge 😍
