Kelsey added: “Tom’s emotional anyway, and I’m the harder one. But I was so overwhelmed when he was born. When the baby’s on you, you’re like: ‘I can’t believe it!’ We were all crying.”

Kelsey also opened up about how they – or should we say she – chose their son’s name.

“Bodhi means enlightenment so it just goes perfectly with our situation right now. He’s the light at the end of our tunnel. Tom didn’t want the name. I said: ‘Tom, I don’t care what you say – we’re having Bodhi and that’s it.'”
