We caught up with Binks to hear all about be­ing a new mummy

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

Binky Fel­stead can­not stop smil­ing – and it’s easy to see why. The 26-year-old is so happy right now: her once rocky re­la­tion­ship with Josh ‘JP’ Pat­ter­son is ‘bet­ter than ever’ (they’ve even just bagged a spin-off re­al­ity se­ries fol­low­ing Binky’s an­nounce­ment that she’s left Made In Chelsea) and most im­por­tantly, she’s a mummy. This is def­i­nitely Binky’s year.

While launch­ing her new In The Style sum­mer col­lec­tion, we caught up with Binky to hear all about be­com­ing a mum. While she can’t stop gush­ing about her baby girl, she’s look­ing for­ward to get­ting back to nor­mal, squeez­ing into her skinny jeans and en­joy­ing every se­cond of mother­hood. Is she feel­ing pres­sure to shed her baby weight quickly? Not re­ally, but she ad­mits if it’ll make her happy, she’s all for a quick (but healthy) trans­for­ma­tion.

‘I don’t see why any­one would have an opin­ion if I did lose it quickly,’ says Binky. ‘As long as you’re do­ing it the health­i­est way and you’re gain­ing strength from within, then why not? I don’t see why peo­ple have such an is­sue with want­ing to feel good.’ While she’s fo­cus­ing on a healthy re­cov­ery, she has pretty strong opinions about pla­centa prepa­ra­tions (the idea of trans­form­ing your pla­centa into pills, face creams and even smooth­ies post-birth).

‘It’s dis­gust­ing and I’d never do it in a mil­lion years,’ says Binks. ‘There’s no proof it does any­thing to help, it can make you feel re­ally ill and no one knows where it gets shipped to – you could end up eat­ing some­one else’s pla­centa.’ Half­way through our chat, Made In Chelsea co-star (and favourite to be god­par­ent) Ol­lie Locke turns up to sur­prise Binky. ‘He missed my baby shower, so he’s in my bad books. He’s try­ing to make it up to me,’ re­veals Binky. Ol­lie isn’t the only co-star who could have some mak­ing up to do. While chat­ting about Binky’s ex­trav­a­gant baby gifts (in­clud­ing a gor­geous Moses bas­ket, moun­tains of clothes and plush ted­dies) she re­vealed posh pal Mark- Fran­cis Van­delli still hasn’t bought any­thing for her new ar­rival. But she’s not too fussed – Binky’s main pri­or­i­ties are her newborn baba and JP, who she adorably brings up in every other sen­tence. Avid MIC fans will know the pair have been on and off since 2015 and in the cur­rent se­ries JP’S been crit­i­cised for hav­ing doubts about mov­ing in with Binky be­fore the birth. But de­spite the past, they’re said to be in a re­ally good place.

Binky tells us ec­stat­i­cally that the pair have re­ally pulled through their tough times.‘we’re bet­ter than ever,’ says Binks. ‘He’s amaz­ing. I’m re­ally happy and con­tent, which is mak­ing him re­ally happy and con­tent. There’s no pres­sure. We’re not the most con­ven­tional cou­ple but we’re re­ally happy to­gether and that’s all that mat­ters. Our baby is big­ger than mar­riage or mov­ing in to­gether.’ Binky’s sum­mer range is avail­able at In­
