VIDEO: Kimberley introduces baby Cole

"She was doing a gag where she pretended to walk in to the door frame and bump her head and he literally made her do it a 100 times, he was cracking up. It was so brilliant having her there to help. Baby Cole seemed to enjoy his first shoot, he had his eyes open loads and was looking straight into the camera. It's so lovely to get some nice pics of us all together while he's still so tiny."

Kimberley, 35, and husband Justin, 34, welcomed their second child in December. One month later they celebrated their first wedding anniversary, with Kimberley revealing that she was poorly on the day. The mum-of-two wrote in her blog: "It wasn't your typical first wedding anniversary celebration. I ended up being sick so as I suspected, it was a quiet one this year! Justin made me a lovely breakfast in bed with all my favourite things and even an egg shaped as a heart, bless him. I had a lovely sleep in which is probably what I would choose over a dinner out these days anyway!"
