They haven’t decided on a name for her yet, but proud parents Billie Faiers and fiancé Greg Shepherd are over the moon about their gorgeous new addition to the family.
The Only Way Is Essex star and partner have been photographed with their new 8lb 7oz baby daughter for OK! magazine at the couple’s Brentwood home.
‘My whole body is still in shock,’ she exclaimed recalling the agony of her gruelling 32-hour labour.’
‘When she was born I couldn’t believe that she was here, I still can’t now. I’ve never experienced anything like that pain in my life. You can’t explain it.’
Billie also reveals how her sister Sam filmed much of the birth.
‘She was amazing and proved to be a complete natural as a midwife,’ Billie declared emphatically. ‘She’d been a birthing partner for one of our best friends twice, so she came in the room and was like a midwife. She started to massage my back and knew exactly what to do!’

While they are obviously thrilled with their bundle of joy, Billie and Greg are still struggling to choose a name for their little girl.
‘We just haven’t decided, it’s so difficult,’ the TOWIE star pointed out to the magazine. ‘We’ve been Googling names and looking at her saying: ‘Does she look like this?’
‘All the women in our family have ‘Elizabeth’ as their middle name so I think that will be hers,’ Billie maintains. ‘Greg liked the name Skyla but I was like: ‘No way!’
On Monday Billie took baby daughter out in her Essex homeland. Looking fit in a white, summery blouse and black, cropped trousers, the reality TV personality cut an effortlessly maternal figure. With her hair tied back into a plait, she kept it simple with sandals, sunglasses and a Louis Vuitton bag. Keeping the sun – and the public – from her newborn, she carried her girl in a car-seat which was shaded with a blanket.

A representative for Billie and Greg told MailOnline: ‘Billie Faiers has given birth to a baby girl. Mother and baby are doing well.’
