Kate Ford Introduces Son Otis

Kate Ford Introduces Son Otis

Coronation Street actress Kate Ford introduced her baby son Otis in this week’s Hello! Magazine. Kate, 31, and husband Jon Connerty welcomed their 9lb 14oz baby boy, first child for both, at London’s private Portland Hospital in early June, no exact date has been given.

On her love for her son: “I couldn’t believe I’d given birth to such a beautiful baby. I was in hospital for three days with Otis beside my bed. I’d wake up and just stare and stare at him sleeping because I was so amazed that he was mine. He had a little name tag around his wrist that said ‘Baby Boy Connerty’ and I couldn’t help grinning from ear to ear every time I looked at it. I’ve kept it for him.”

On how she’s coping: “I’m just so proud of our son, I could burst with it. The first few days, Otis slept most of the time, which lulled me into a false sense of security. He is sleeping in our room at the moment and wakes up every few hours, so Jon and I take it in turns to get up and look after him or give him a bottle. Jon has two weeks off work and my mum and his mum are helping out, so I’m very lucky to be able to get some sleep.”

On choosing the name Otis: “Both Jon and I are Otis Redding fans. Try a little tenderness is our favourite song. I’ve always liked the name. His middle names are James and Roger, after Jon’s dad.”

On getting into a routine: “I’ve got more of a routine now but, in the beginning, just simple things like making dinner seemed like a big performance because I was so pre-occupied with Otis. I’m lucky to have such a supportive family and husband. Jon does his share of feeding and nappy changing, he’s a very hands-on dad and Otis is a very contented baby.”

Jon on fatherhood: “I’m delighted and proud but I felt like a spare part at the birth because there was nothing I could do. Kate had a very long labour and my concern was for her. I held her hand and patted her while Otis was born and he was handed to me soon after. I was just glad he was all in one piece. He’s a lovely baby and clearly takes after his mum.”

    Salma Hayek & Francois-Henri Pinault Split

    Valentina’s parents have called off their engagement. Salma Hayek and French billionaire, Francois-Henri Pinault, have called it quits,

    “We are sad to announce the engagement of Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault has been canceled,” Hayek’s rep stated to USA Today. “There will be no further comment.”

    I think we might have seen this one coming. Salma recently stated she didn’t feel the “need” to get married,

    “Do I think we are going to get married? Probably. Will it make a difference? I hope not. You want to grow old with someone, you want to have a partner and to have children — we have all those things. Some people need the commitment. Maybe we’ll just make the party!”

    Valentina is the first child for the 41-year-old actress. Francois-Henri, 45, has two children from a previous marriage.
