Heiress Petra Ecclestone secretly gave birth to a baby girl “a few weeks ago,” the star’s fiancé said.
Sam Palmer, 31, announced the exciting news on his Instagram story earlier today.
The recruiting consultant did not share a photo or details about his daughter in the message, simply writing, “I have received a lot of messages asking when the baby is expected. We had a beautiful daughter a few weeks ago.
“Thanks for all the messages. Mother and daughter are doing very well. “
Speaking to existing coronavirus lockout regulations, Sam added, “She hasn’t seen the world yet, but I told her that someday she would if she behaved. “
The message came only hours after Sam left his supporters confused when he shared a photo of him and Petra relaxing in their sunny garden.
His disciples quickly noticed that the 36-year-old baby’s bump was gone – with his remarkably flat stomach under a patterned dress.
Sam did not cover the arrival of his newborn baby in the legend, writing instead: “Enjoy the sun in the garden today. “
Petra has not yet announced the birth on her own social media page, but yesterday spoke about the disappearance of her loved ones during her locked-out life.
She shared: “Being locked out is not necessarily” easy “, but it is the right thing to do.
“Although I am missing some aspects of my” normal “daily life, I am proud to stay at home to support the ability of the NHS to manage this crisis and help prevent more illnesses.
“What are you missing right now about our” normal “lives?” For me, I miss my little niece and my beautiful sister @tamaraecclestoneofficial.
“I miss seeing my family and friends, and I miss the simple things in life that seem so out of reach now.
“This desire, however, is definitely worth it for what we are helping to curl. In the end, I am so grateful for the health of my children, my family and myself.
“My thoughts are with anyone who fell ill or lost a friend or loved one during this ordeal. “
Her sister Tamara commented on the post: “@petraecclestoneofficial we miss you so much, Fifi misses her cousins”.
The newborn baby girl is Petra’s first child with Sam, but she shares three children with ex James Stunt.
The former model is the mother of seven-year-old Lavinia and five-year-old twins Andrew and James.
