Amanda Lamb and her cameraman husband Sean McGuinness have welcomed their second child, a baby girl, HELLO! Online can exclusively reveal.
"We can't believe she’s finally here," the TV presenter told HELLO!. "She is absolutely adorable. We are all utterly besotted and so very thankful." The couple, who met when they both worked on Channel 4 programme A Place in the Sun, are already parents to a four-year-old daughter, Willow.
When Amanda announced to HELLO! that she was pregnant, she spoke about being due to give birth around the same time as both Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian. "I keep looking at Kate it and looks as though she’s swallowed a pea – there’s nothing of her," she joked. "And then I look at Kim Kardashian and think maybe I fall somewhere between the two."
Amanda gave birth at the age of 41, but told HELLO! that she feels in better shape now than she did when she was 35.
"I would have liked to have had my babies in my late 20s, but I hadn’t met Sean at that point," she said.
"I didn’t meet the man I wanted to have children with until I was 34 or 35 so, you know, it’s a tricky one.
She said there are advantages to becoming a mother later in life. "I know myself a lot better," she said. '"I’m more patient."
"I never find myself saying, 'I wish I’d done that before I had kids.' I did everything I wanted to." Amanda worked throughout her pregnancy and recently filmed Beat My Build, which will air on Channel 4 later this year.
Amanda and Sean married in a romantic ceremony at Babington House in May 2012. She told HELLO! at the time: "I’ve got an amazing husband, the most beautiful little girl, a great life and I just keep pinching myself. I’m incredibly grateful and thankful."
