“Only you BB.”

The birth of Madeleine and Callum’s daughter comes after Madeleine went against tradition when getting engaged to her partner. The daughter of Adrian Dunbar revealed that she was the one to propose to Callum, not the other way round.

Madeleine admitted to being worried about what Adrian, who is from a “very traditional Irish background” would think. But, thankfully, Madeleine said, “he had no issue with it”.

“He knows me. He knows it’s the kind of thing I do!” she said.
