Former Towie star Lydia Bright welcomes ‘perfect' baby girl

The TV personality said that she is ‘overwhelmed with love' after becoming a mother.

Lydia Bright has welcomed her first child, a baby girl.

The former star of The Only Way Is Essex told Hello! magazine that she gave birth on Friday.

Bright, 29, posted a picture on Instagram of her daughter’s tiny hand wrapped around her thumb.

She wrote: “My darling girl has arrived. I am so overwhelmed with love, she is absolutely perfect.”

She did not reveal the name of the baby, whose father is her ex-partner Lee Cronin.

Bright, who appeared on reality TV show Towie on and off from 2010 until 2017, announced her pregnancy in August while confirming her split from Cronin, whom she had dated for two years.

At the time, she told Hello! magazine: “It’s not the ideal situation.

“I waited quite a long time to try for a baby, waited until I thought it was perfect.”

Bright, who was previously in a long-term relationship with fellow Towie star James ‘Arg’ Argent, is also known for appearing in TV shows The Jump, Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls and Celebrity Mastermind.
