The Ladies of London family has welcomed a new little gentleman. Alum Noelle Reno gave birth to her first child, son Xander Maximilian Perks, on November 10, 2016 at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, she announced on Instagram earlier this week.
The bouncing baby boy weighed 6 pounds and 13 ounces at the time of his birth, Noelle revealed on Twitter.
Noelle and her partner, city banker Nick Perks, couldn't have been more excited about their new bundle of joy when they first announced the pregnancy in July. "I am truly blessed with everything I've ever wanted for - a healthy baby boy, a truly wonderful partner whom I love, and a business for which I'm beyond passionate," Noelle told HELLO! Online. "Gratitude best describes how I feel."
When we last saw Noelle on Season 1 of Ladies of London, she was engaged to high-profile British entrepreneur Scot Young. Noelle revealed in a HuffPost Lifestyle blog post published in August 2015 that she and Scot had broken up before his sudden death in December 2014.
After that challenging time, Noelle told HELLO! magazine in September that she knows how lucky she is to be welcoming her little boy into her life. "I didn't think I could [get pregnant] so this was a wonderful surprise," she said, as reported by The Daily Mail. "I hadn't given up but it's so interesting because, gosh, it was a case of the right person at the right time. I think the body is more intelligent than we give it credit for. I've found someone who is an amazing partner and an amazing guy. He doesn't let me get away with anything, which is really annoying! My mum was watching us last week and she said [to him], 'You are perfect for her!'"
Just days after giving birth, it looks like Noelle is already on to her next adventure with her little man.
She has plenty of smashing places to take him when she gets back to London, after all.
