Holly Valance has given birth to a baby girl, Luka Violet Toni.
Valance, 30, and husband Nick Candy, 40, welcomed their first daughter two days ago in London.
“Holly is at home,” Candy told Britain’s The Telegraph. “We aren’t having any help at the moment. Holly doesn’t want any, she wants to do it all ourselves at this stage, but that might change – it has only been a few days.”
The property developer gushed about Valance. “She is a perfect mother. It was a natural birth. She is from a big Australian family, with younger siblings, so she knows exactly what she is doing.”
Their daughter’s second middle name Toni is a tribute to Candy’s late father who died six weeks ago.
“It is such a shame that dad died six weeks before Luka was born, but I had the best role model possible in him, so, hopefully, if I can be anything like the father he was to me, when it comes to raising Luka, we’ll be onto a winner.”
The couple, who started dating in 2009, married last year in a lavish Beverly Hills ceremony with guests including Elton John and Simon Cowell.
Congratulations to the happy parents!
