Lydia Bright sparks speculation she’s given birth to first child as she posts video of baby’s hand

Lydia Bright has sparked speculation she has given birth to her baby daughter, who she affectionately calls Dinky.

Lydia sent the rumour mill into overdrive when she posted an Instagram story early Tuesday morning showing her holding a baby’s hand, with the little one wearing a white babygrow.

As the 29 year old zooms in on the baby’s hand cradled in hers, she cryptically captioned the video: “My morning wake up.”

The former TOWIE star has just returned from her baby shower, which was a luxurious weekend spent at the Celtic Manor Resort in Wales.

Lydia was joined by her best friend Lucy Mecklenburgh, who is also pregnant, Amber Dowding, TV presenter Denise van Outen, her sisters Georgia and Roma and mum Debbie among others.

Sharing a picture of the group, Lydia wrote on Instagram: “I couldn’t have dreamed of a better birthday/baby shower weekend. Today I turn 29 years young.

"As I sit here reflecting on the years, I realise how lucky I am. The world I have visited, the opportunities I have been given but most importantly the people I have around me. Thank you @thecelticmanor for hosting my weekend and @hadesignsltd for our matching PJs GIFTED.” [sic]


Lydia had previously revealed that she was due to give birth to her first child on 25th February.

She is expecting her baby girl with her her ex boyfriend Lee Cronin, and though the pair are no longer together, Lydia has said that Lee is very involved.

Speaking to her Nanny Bright on her family’s podcast, The Brights, recently, Lydia revealed she was preparing for the birth, but admitted that she’s not sure Lee will be a source of encouragement and comfort when it comes to her labour.

Lydia said: "I had my first antenatal class. Me mum, and Lee. They are my birthing partners. It was 3 hours long. We had to sit there and she goes through all your options, natural birth, c-section, epidural, all the pain relief you can have, home births. She went through everything with me.

"We got 1 more antenatal class then 34 weeks before we do the birthing plan. Mum wants me to have the baby at her house."

Lydia continued: "They say if you go to hospital, you're more likely to be intervened with because you're not relaxed. Your contractions stop. I've got to decide whether I have a home birth or go to hospital."

The star then opened up on Lee as she said: “I feel like Lee's going to be useless. When they were giving the presentation [at the antenatal class], they were like 'This is what you've got to do, this is what the dad's have to do, massage the back.'

"She was like, 'Let's do an exercise. You, stand up. Lee, stand up, if she's in pain, where would you massage if she's about to give birth?'

"He went like that, at the top of my back. She was like 'The baby's not there is it. Where's the baby?' He was like 'It's there.'

"So she was like 'So where would you massage?' And he was like 'I don't understand. Is it a trick question?' Poor Lee. At least he's learning.

"The woman was saying you need words of encouragement from your birthing partners. I thought. 'Can you imagine Lee doing that? He would freak. There's no way he's doing that. They're useless."
