Billie Faiers says her sister Sam was a "natural" midwife when she gave birth to her first child last week
Billie Faiers says her sister Sam was a "natural" midwife during her labour.
'The Only Way is Essex' star - who gave birth to her first daughter with fiancé Greg Shepherd last Thursday (10.07.14) - has revealed her younger sibling has a surprising talent for midwifery after helping her through the painful delivery.
She told Britain's OK! magazine: "She was amazing and proved to be a complete natural as a midwife! She'd been a birthing partner for one of our best friends twice, so she came in the room and was like a midwife. She started to massage my back and knew exactly what to do!"
Billie admits she is still getting over the pain of her delivery.
She added: "My whole body is still in shock. I've never experienced anything like that pain in my life. You can't explain it."
Meanwhile, the 24 year old - who has starred on the hit ITV2 reality show since 2010 - is struggling to agree with Greg on a name for their baby girl.
She explained: "We just haven't decided, it's so difficult. We've been Googling names and looking at her saying, 'Does she look like this?'
"All the women in our family have Elizabeth as their middle name so I think that will be hers.
"Greg liked the name Skyla but I was like, 'No way!' "
