'This Morning' star Holly Willoughby has opened up about her "delicious" newborn son Chester William Baldwin, and revealed she had a "water birth" for the first time

Holly Willoughby "can't stop looking" at her newborn son Chester.

The TV star welcomed her third child into the world with husband Daniel Baldwin yesterday (29.09.14) and she revealed it was a "water birth", which she hadn't experienced before.

Speaking on ITV's 'This Morning' earlier today, she said: "I'm really good thank you very much. I'm very, very happy. We had a very exciting evening.

"I started having contractions at about 9am [yesterday morning] and they kind of lasted all day... and he arrived about 7.20pm ... And it was very different from my other two - I had a water birth which I never thought I'd do and that was amazing.

"And he was a really big boy - 8lbs 12oz! But he's perfect. He's so delicious, I can't stop looking at him."

The new mother revealed her son's full name - Chester William Baldwin - on Twitter last night, and how now explained it's a name they've "had for ages".

She added: "It was a name we had for ages actually - when we had Harry, we were umming and ahhing over Chester or Harry... although they [Harry and Belle] met their brother today and Harry walked in and I said 'his name is Chester' and Harry said 'No, I want to call him Frank'... so it might be Frank!"

When asked how the family was getting on, Holly said they are all enjoying being in a "lovely baby bubble".

She said: "Everybody's absolutely fine - we're just in that lovely baby bubble and it's just wonderful and I can't wait for you to meet him.

"He's with me now and being very good."
