The TOWIE new mum talks about the very special middle name she’s chosen for her daughter
Anyone watching TOWIE on Sunday night was privy to Billie Faiers exclusively revealing what her daughter is called – and now the new mum has unveiled the full name.
Meet Nelly Samantha, two weeks. But it wasn’t Billie, 24, and fiancé Greg’s original name choice for their little girl.
‘We really liked the name Elsie before she was born, but Greg and I kept looking at her and didn’t think she looked anything like an Elsie, so we were undecided,’ Billie tells OK! magazine, out now.

‘Then on Monday night [July 14] Mum and I were lying in bed with the baby having a little snuggle, and Mum suddenly said: “It’s Nelly! She looks like a Nelly!” and immediately I was like: “Yes, that’s it!”’
Billie also revealed she and sister Samantha both burst into tears when Billie told her Nelly’s middle name.
‘We thoughts it would be really nice for her to have Samantha as her middle name because Samantha was there when she was born,’ she says, referring to Sam being one of her birth partners.
‘She formed such a close bond with Nelly straight away, and is so natural with her, that both Greg and I thought it would be a lovely way to honour her as an auntie.’
