Amy Childs has asked her cousin Harry Derbidge to be her unborn baby's guardian if anything happens to her
Amy Childs has asked her cousin Harry Derbidge to be her baby's godfather.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star still has four months to go until she's due to meet her little bundle of joy but she and her partner Bradley Wright have already started thinking about who they want around their little one and have decided the blonde star is the perfect person to be the legal guardian of their child if anything happens to them.
Taking to her Instagram account just after she took to the stage to play the Slave of the Ring in the pantomime performance of 'Aladdin' in London on Wednesday (07.12.16) night, she said: "So tonight I asked my cousin @mrharryderbidge to be the godfather to my baby! We cried, laughed and then did a panto show! Me and Brad could not have ask for a better Uncle and Godfather! #UncleHarry #Bump (sic)."
The 26-year-old beauty announced she was expecting in October and admitted, although her baby news came as a shock to her, she and her beau have been trying to fall pregnant for a while because she was convinced she couldn't conceive naturally.
She said at the time: "I am feeling shocked but happy. I feel so overwhelmed and I keep waking up smiling. We've wanted a baby for so long, so we're happier than we've ever been. We wanted one [a baby] before Bradley went to prison but it didn't happen. I didn't think I could get pregnant.
"We'd been together for nine months and I came off the pill in the summer and I thought it might take me ages. I was taking folic acid but it didn't happen. I was really panicking.
"I went online to find out why and it was the worst thing I could have done. I got so stressed out about it that I was drinking. Brad told me off for it but I couldn't help it."
The pair met in a pub in Essex two years ago but their relationship came to a halt last year when Bradley was sentenced to 16 months in prison for handling stolen goods.
However, the jailbird only served five months of his service as he was released early for good behaviour and he immediately went to Amy's salon in Essex to win her back.
