BINKY: ‘I can’t wait to get my body back’
Binky Felstead tells us all about her new life and her changing style
Could this year be any bigger for Alexandra ‘Binky’ Felstead? Not only has the 27-year-old become a first-time mum to baby India with boyfriend Josh ‘JP’ Patterson, who she’s recently set up home with, she also waved goodbye to her six-year stint on Made In Chelsea. Not to mention her brand-new In The Style collection – which, FYI, is our favourite of Binky’s so far.
Catching up with the star during a pretty hectic morning (which we’re told is standard with a seven-week-old bubba), Binky tells us all about the range, life with little India and how she’s looking so incredible.
‘I’m feeling really confident,’ reveals Binks. ‘We did this shoot a few days ago and I love my photos. Especially the grey dress [above] – I’ve styled that with a belt so it’s very flattering and cool. That and the monochrome checked dress. I love that – it’s all very boho. ‘I’m very happy and proud of my body. I’ve just had a baby so I’m not 100 per cent back to normal, but I’m not bothered about my wobbly bits – they’ll go when I start working out again.’ The last time Look chatted to Binky, she was just a few weeks away from her due date and her style was all about being comfy (obvs). Has that changed now that she’s getting back into the swing of things? Not really, we’re told. But she is looking forward to wearing more fitted pieces. ‘I’m still very much focused on comfort. It’s only been seven weeks,’ she says. ‘I haven’t started training yet – I’m easing back into things slowly. I’ve had almost two months off, but I’ll be getting back into it next week. It’s nice to get out of the house for a few hours when India’s sleeping. It’s good for my head. Now that she’s a bit older, I don’t mind leaving her with her granny for a bit longer – she’s the most loved baby ever.’
With Binky looking so fabulous, we can’t help wondering how she’s done it... ‘Although I haven’t started training, I have food delivered each morning – Fresh Fitness Food,’ she reveals. ‘I don’t have time to cook at the moment. Also I can’t be bothered, so that’s really useful! Training begins next week and I’m looking forward to getting my body back so I can start wearing tighter clothes again.’
Er, Binks, you’ve only just India and you look bloody awesome. We’re glad to hear the family are having some time off – they definitely deserve a getaway. Binky’s latest collection is available at Inthestyle.com from 9 August
