Nicole Williams English has welcomed a baby girl – India Moon – with husband Larry English.

She said: ‘Our sweet baby girl is here and we are over the moon in love! We went in for our routine fetal monitoring appointment, and it turned out that I was developing preeclampsia. My doctor said, ‘we are having this baby like, TODAY.'”  

‘We drove directly to the hospital, and within a few hours, our baby girl was in our arms. It was the scariest moment but as soon as we both heard her cry it was the happiest moment of our lives. Larry and I can’t stop staring at her!  

Pre-eclampsia is a pregnancy complication that causes high blood pressure, which can be deadly for both a woman and her unborn baby if untreated.

It usually begins after 20 weeks of pregnancy in women whose blood pressure is typically normal.  The most effective treatment is an early delivery; usually via C-section.

Nicole added: ‘I’m just taking my time now to heal and recover and enjoy being her mom. We are so grateful we were blessed with a healthy baby girl. That’s all we ever wanted.’

The couple had trouble conceiving naturally, so they turned to In vitro fertilization for help starting their family. 

 For the runway model, who is scared of needles, it was a difficult process. 

‘It was emotional because there’s a lot of unnatural drugs that you have to pump into your body. So Larry gave me needles in my stomach because I couldn’t bear it. I’m terrified of needles. The first time I was like, “Oh my God, what, what what?” The second time was a little easier.’

Because Nicole had always wanted to have a daughter, she chose a female embryo to become their oldest child.

‘We went back and forth about it, but I really wanted a girl first,’ she explained, ‘and Larry’s so easy and so supportive.

‘He’s like, “I’m totally fine being a girl dad.” He has little girls around him and has a little sister who’s a bit younger than he is. He’s the only boy, so yeah, he was just totally fine with having a girl first.’
