Speaking to the publication, Ola explained they didn’t have a moniker for their bundle of joy in the first week, so they had to call her “baby” or “little munchkin”.

Ola, 37, said: “It’s been amazing and overwhelming at the same time. We’ve wanted this for so long.

“We had a lovely life, but this is making us feel so much happier than anything else we have done.

“Nothing in our careers measures up to this. It feels perfect.”

The pair turned to IVF in an attempt to become pregnant, and James has admitted the birth of his daughter has “totally changed the way I see the world”.
