Kate Lawler has returned home from hospital after the birth of her baby daughter and has revealed her name is Noa Daisy Ilse.
The 40-year-old former Big Brother star shared a montage of adorable videos of her newborn after welcoming her to this world on Thursday.
They are now safely home, with fiancé Martin, after they were forced to stay longer in hospital after baby Noa “lost too much weight.”
The Virgin Radio presenter shared a video of Noa sleeping peacefully as well as the moment she was taken out of the hospital in a baby carrier.
Kate accompanied the post with a lengthy caption, in which she revealed the origin of her daughter’s name.
Kate wrote: “Five days ago at 2:01pm on 11.02.2021, our beautiful daughter arrived and although we only got home from hospital earlier this evening, we’re hopeful tomorrow’s visit from the midwife means we’re home for good.
“I’ll tell you more about her journey so far as soon as I can string a sentence together but for now… We’d love you all to meet our little girl… Noa Daisy Ilse.
“In case you’re wondering about her name, if you listen to our podcast, you’ll know from the earlier episodes of Maybe Baby that we chose this name as soon as we discovered we were having a girl.”
Kate continued: “We came across the name Noa after meeting Boj’s cousin’s wife when they came to visit from Israel a few years ago.
“It’s a popular female name over there and is pronounced just like the name Noah. Her middle name Daisy is a name we also both love and her other middle name ILSE was the name of Boj’s grandma.
“When we told Boj’s Mum we were having a girl, she told us Boj’s Grandma’s birthday was a couple of days before Noa’s due date.”
Kate added: “Ilse passed away on Boj’s 12th birthday and they were very close so this name it means a lot to our family.
“Noa will take Boj’s last name which he doesn’t share online (the one bit of privacy he has left thanks to me).”
Kate shared her joy at being back home as she continued: “We are so happy to be home and want to thank you all your messages of love. I’m so sorry if we’ve not responded but the past five days have been completely unexpected and overwhelming.”
She concluded the post: “Lots of love. Kate, Boj & Noa x”.
