Rochelle Humes reveals unusual umbilical cord art keepsake

Get all the details on the Humes family's new arrival... and which new mum trends Rochelle is trying out


Rochelle and Marvin Humes have had their 2nd child!


The TV presenter couple announced the birth of their daughter, Valentina Raine Humes, on Sat 11 March 2017.

“Our world is now complete ? Valentina Raine Humes – Happy birthday little one…?” Rochelle wrote beside a sweet Instagram snap of her holding the newborn.

While Marvin added: “Couldn’t be a happier or prouder man! What another incredible blessing!

“Today my beautiful wife gave birth to our second daughter Valentina Raine Humes.. Alaia-Mai is over the moon that she has a baby sister! I’m overjoyed ❤”

“I never thought I’d fall in love with more than one girl.. now I’m in love with three! ❤❤❤” he gushed.

Awww ?

Here’s what the Humes family have been up to since Valentine’s arrival…

Rochelle’s umbilical cord art

Rochelle took to her Instagram page to share a snap of her daughter’s framed umbilical cord, which was shaped to spell the word ‘love’.

It’s definitely a very unique memento from the birth, and we’re not surprised the stylish mum of 2 has cottoned on to this trend.

Unusual keepsakes like umbilical cord art (and even breastmilk jewellery) have been a bit of a thing for a while ?

It also seems Rochelle will be trying out placenta pills – a trend favoured by many celeb mums, including Kim Kardashian, Coleen Rooney and January Jones.

The pills contain dehydrated placenta (which is probs a bit easier than eating it raw) – but are still said to have all the nutrients.

The jury’s still out on whether or not these pills really deliver health-wise, but it seems Rochelle’s up for giving them a go!

“After being very curious I took the plunge, so excited to feel the benefits..??  ? ” she added.

We can’t wait to hear how she gets on ?

Marvin’s little footballer…

Marvin’s been pretty snap-happy since Valentina’s birth – even sharing a pic of him and his girls with his former JLS bandmates.

But one pic that really caught our eye was the nappy brand he snapped in an Instagram post – Chelsea FC!

“Just about to change Valentina’s nappy… starting her off the right way!!! ?  ?” he joked in the caption.

We have to admit, we didn’t really know that the top Premier League football club was in the nappy-making business.

But as any footie fan knows, you’ve got to start ‘em young! ?
