Kimberly Wyatt: “Davina McCall named my baby girl”

The expectant Pussycat Dolls alum reveals how TV's Davina decided what daughter would be called...


Baby names. They’re really tough to pick, huh?


Not if you’re former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt. That’s because her TV presenter pal Davina McCall did the hard work for her.

In our Facebook Live chat with newly-published children’s author, Kimberly recalled how she was dreaming up monikers for her firstborn while on a plane with model husband Max Rogers, when Davina popped up with a suggestion…

“For Willow, we had all these ideas for what her name was gonna be and then we happened to be on a plane with Davina McCall,” she began.

“And she comes and she’s like, ‘What are you guys talking about?’ and embarrassingly we were like, ‘Well, future baby names’.

“She was like, ‘I’ve got one for you’ and I’m thinking, ‘Oh God, what is it gonna be?’

“She said Willow and it just stuck. So, yeah, Davina McCall named my baby girl.”

Awww! We wonder if Davina will have a hand in picking baby no 2’s name ?

Yep, in case you missed it, Kimberly and Max are expecting a sibling for 2-year-old Willow later in the summer.

And while she wouldn’t reveal whether the new arrival would be a little bro or baby sis, she did admit that she had a few name choices up her sleeve… and despite a fan’s suggestion, Jai Ho (the name of a very famous Pussycat Dolls song) isn’t one of them.

“We have an idea of if it’s a girl, what it’s name would be and if it’s a boy, what it’s name would be, because my partner and I like to be creative together. We wanna make that happen.”


Pregnancy’s been a very different experience for Kimberly this time around – and not just because she’s having to grapple with one of the biggest dilemmas buggy-shopping can throw at you.

Mostly because she’s experiencing some of the pregnancy side effects that make us want to use these thumbs up emojis in a completely sarcastic fashion ???

“Last time, I didn’t have a whole lot of morning sickness. But this time, the first 3 months, it was from the time I woke up to the time I went to sleep,” she revealed, sharing her struggle with Hyperememis Gravadium.

“Yeah, it was crazy. It was a bit of a shock.

“It’s quite intense, when you’re doing the mummy juggle and it’s the first few months and you’re keeping it to yourself, and not telling people [you’re pregnant], so you’re kind of suffering in silence in a way.”

Ugh. Don’tcha wish morning sickness would really, really stop being a thing? We certainly do ?
