Millie Macintosh & Hugo Taylor Reveal Name of Baby Girlby Laura Driver
Millie Mackintosh has introduced her and husband Hugo Taylor's baby daughter to the world - and revealed her name, Sienna Grace, for the first time which they picked out a few months before the birth.
"She is so adorable, even down to the little noises she makes," Millie says of Sienna, who arrived on 1 May weighing 7lbs. "We've been on cloud nine; it's gone so quickly. We've been in our little love bubble at home, cherishing those newborn moments, whether that's her sleeping on me or just lapping up all the cuteness." Hugo adds: "Sienna has turned our world upside down. It's like first love all over again – that wondrous feeling of excitement, joy and endless possibility for the future. I can't wait to watch her grow."
Millie also reveals that Sienna was born via Caesarean, which was planned after the couple found out at 28 weeks that she was in the breach position. Millie, 30, felt "really calm" at the prospect of the birth, she says: "We were supported by such incredible nurses, doctors and midwives throughout the whole process."
And she was delighted when Hugo was authorized to be present at the birth, amid Covid-19 protocols. "I felt really lucky to have him there holding my hand for that special moment. It was incredible," she says. "When I first saw her, I cried. I remember thinking: 'Oh my God, this is really real.' Even though you've been carrying a baby for nine months, you still can't quite believe it until you meet her. I definitely felt a surge of love in that moment."
Now Millie can't wait to start planning playdates with family and friends; not least Vogue Williams, whose baby girl is due this summer and whose husband Spencer Matthews co-starred with Millie and Hugo on the Bafta-winning Made in Chelsea. "It'll be so cute for them to play together," she says. "I'm delighted Vogue's having a girl – I know she really wanted a girl. For ages we were like: 'We've got to get pregnant at the same time,' and then we actually did."
