Last year was a tough one for her, after suffering the trauma of a miscarriage, which is why we were so delighted yesterday when it was announced that reality television star and former TOWIE cast member Cara Kilbey had welcomed her first child into the world.
It was Cara’s brother Tom who shared the news, simply confirming that the 26-year-old had given birth, but her representative has this morning shared all of the details – including the gender and name!
In a statement issued to OK! magazine, Cara’s rep confirmed that she and partner Daniel welcomed a daughter named Penelope Blu.
“Cara and Daniel are thrilled to welcome Penelope Blu Harris to the world. She weighed 9lbs 2oz, and both mother and baby are doing well. They already love her to bits," said the rep.
Cara went on to share a stunning shot of her newborn tot clutching her finger on Twitter, welcoming Penelope into the world.
We are so thrilled for Cara, Daniel and her family – and we just adore that name!

Cara’s second pregnancy was not without its complications; last December she expressed concerns that she may have had to give birth prematurely, due to a kidney stone issue. In the end, little Penelope was actually born five days after her due date.
