Holly Willoughby only gave birth to Chester William on Monday, but she’s already been on the phone to This Morning. The mum-of-3 called in to the show to tell Phillip Schofield and her stand-in Amanda Holden all about her new “big” arrival.
“It was a very exciting evening; I started having contractions at around 9 in the morning. Then he arrived at 7.20pm,” she said. “It was very different to my other two, I had a water birth and that was amazing and he was a really big boy.”
Holly hasn’t revealed details about how big Chester is, but she must have been relieved that she had a straightforward birth after her 50-hour labour marathon giving birth to her 3-year-old daughter Belle.
She announced on Monday that her newborn is called Chester. But not all of the Willoughby clan approve of the name. In fact, Holly’s 5-year-old son Harry has another suggestion.
“When we told them he was called Chester this morning, Harry said: ‘No, I want to call him Frank’,” she said.
But despite the dispute over Chester’s name, Holly is having a “lovely” time with her newborn.
“Everything is just lovely. We’re just in that lovely baby bubble,” she said.
“He’s so delicious, I can’t stop looking at him, he’s perfect.”
