Rochelle Humes admits having a lockdown baby has been ‘weird’

Rochelle Humes has admitted her son Blake is ‘frightened of everything’ as she reflected on having a baby during lockdown.

The TV presenter, 32, and her DJ husband Marvin, 36, became parents again in October and she said although it has been a ‘weird’ experience because of the pandemic, she has been able to enjoy a proper maternity leave for the first time. 

The former pop star appeared on This Morning on Tuesday and spoke about the challenges of bringing up a baby who has little experience of the outside world, in comparison to when she had her daughters Alaia-Mai, seven, and Valentina, four.

She said: ‘I had a maternity leave which I’ve never had. 

‘It’s definitely weird bringing up a baby in lockdown. With noises, he’s frightened with everything.’ 

Speaking to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, the mother-of-three said Blake was also taking time to adjust to new people after his grandmother, Rochelle’s mother Roz Wiseman, joined their household bubble.

Rochelle explained: ‘My mum is part of my bubble and got the vaccine, but he isn’t sold on her yet.’

Rochelle took to Instagram on her birthday on Sunday to share ‘the first’ photo taken with all of her three children.

Celebrating turning 32, she shared a snap cradling her son Blake, with sisters Alaia-Mai and Valentina either side of them grinning.

Rochelle wrote: ‘So this is 32 (however in my head I’m still 30 as 2 lockdown birthdays don’t count right?)

‘Thanks so much for all the Birthday love… I’ll be here all day… My heart is full! PS this is the first pic I have had with all 3 of my babies… Mum is always the photographer.’ (sic)

Husband Marvin couldn’t wait to show his affection for his beloved wife when he took to Instagram to wish her a happy birthday earlier on Sunday.

The JLS singer gushed: ‘Happy Birthday Rochy…Thank you for the past 11 incredible birthdays we’ve shared together. The truth is it just gets better. Everything is better with you.’ 

Alongside a stunning couple selfie, Marvin wrote: ‘Here she is..my absolute world. Happy Birthday Rochy.

‘What a few days we’ve had. You make everything you do so special. Thank you for the past 11 incredible birthdays we’ve shared together. 

‘The truth is it just gets better. Everything is better with you. Today is your day and we’ll celebrate how truly amazing you are. I love you. Happy Birthday Baby.’  

Marvin and Rochelle first started dating in March 2010 and the lovebirds moved in together just three months later. 

Wasting no time, former JLS star Marvin then proposed to the The Saturdays singer on holiday in Antigua on New Year’s Eve in 2011. 

The happy couple tied the knot in a star-studded wedding thanks to a glitzy magazine deal at the historic Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on 27 July, 2012

The pair welcomed their first child Alaia-Mai on May 20, 2013, and four years later they added another addition with their second daughter Valentina Raine on March 10, 2017.   

Rochelle revealed she and Marvin have no plans for any more children after welcoming their son. 

She told fans in an Instagram Q&A that she ‘doesn’t want to say never’ as she ‘loves their little bubble so much,’ but as of now they’re done with adding to their family.  

Rochelle explained: ‘I feel very lucky and very blessed to have three healthy children, and yeah I think he will be [our last child]. I like to never want to say never because I love this little bubble so much.’
