Amy Childs names baby girl Polly

Share article:

Amy Childs has named her daughter Polly.

The former "The Only Way is Essex" star gave birth to her little girl at the end of last month and has admitted she and her partner Bradley Wright spent ages thinking of a moniker for the tiny tot once she arrived but finally settled on a "traditional" forename.

Speaking to OK! magazine, she said: "Her full name is Polly Childs-Wright. We liked the traditional names. Before the birth we liked India..."

However Bradley added: "But she's not an India."

Amy explained: "Another name was Elsie, but she definitely isn't an Elsie. Brad suggested Polly first. It's a bit unusual."

The pair have decided not to give Polly a middle name because they think giving her a double barrelled surname is already a "mouthful" for when she's at school.

She added: "Polly Childs-Wright is such a mouthful., When she says her name at school, it would be a bit too much [with a middle name]."

Although her little bundle of joy is perfect, the 26-year-old beauty has admitted her labour was far from ideal and she actually thought she was dying mid-way through.

She explained: "The pain was getting worse. I was told that some people don't dilate and you can have a four-day labour. At 9pm, 18 hours into my labour, I finally agreed to it. I really wanted to go pain-free, but after 18 hours the nurse suggested I should have an epidural. Labour was terrifying. I thought I was going to die; I'm not going to lie to you, it was horrific. I just had no idea it would be so painful."
