Holly Valance Gives Birth To First Baby

The Ultimate Shopper presenter had her child a few days ago, reveals her husband

TV presenter Holly Valance, 30, has given birth to her first baby with property developer husband Nick Candy.

The former Neighbours actress welcomed the couple’s daughter a few days ago.

The pair, who married in a lavish ceremony in 2012, decided to call her Luka Violet Toni Candy as a tribute to Nick’s dad Tony Candy who passed away six weeks before the birth, Nick confirmed to The Telegraph.

‘Her nickname will be LuLu, but, obviously, if she ever goes into business, LuLu Candy just doesn’t quite work. My father’s nickname was always TC,’ he said.

‘We aren’t having any help at the moment,' he added. 'Holly doesn’t want any. She wants to do it all ourselves at this stage, but that might change – it has only been a few days.’

Congratulations Holly and Nick!
