Celebaby: Billie Faiers Gives Birth To Baby Girl
Billie Faiers, of ITV2's The Only Way Is Essex fame, has become a Mum for the first time!
TOWIE star Billie took to her Twitter account to share her baby news with her fans and followers. She wrote:
"We are so excited to announce the birth of our beautiful baby girl... We are so happy and the proudest mummy and daddy in the world."
Billie is engaged to Greg Shepherd, who proposed during a recent romantic holiday.
Hello magazine reports:
"Billie's younger sister Sam, who used to star in the Essex-based reality TV show, couldn't contain her excitement as she revealed the news online ahead of Billie."
"Congratulating her sibling, Sam wrote to her 1.28 million followers, 'Am the proudest auntie in the whole world my baby niece is perfect. Congratulations @BillieFaiers & @Gregshepherd_.'"
It seems Sam was present throughout Billie's labour, too. But ooh, when they say Sam revealed the news ahead of Billie I wonder if that means she stole her thunder, or did so with her sister's blessing?!
There's a thorny issue if ever there was one; would it bother you if someone else pipped you to the post and shared your baby news online (or elsewhere) before you had the chance to do so in person?! Or has that even happened to you? Discuss...
Oh, and to celebrate her new arrival, Billie found time to tweet an exclusive offer code, valid until midnight on Sunday, for her and Sam's clothing store, Minnie's Boutique. To claim 30% off, just type the voucher code BABY into the relevant box at the basket checkout stage.
Congrats, Billie and Greg. We can't wait to see the first official pics of the tiny tot, or find out what she's called. Chances of it being Minnie, too?!
