Made in Chelsea star has baby while fiancé is behind bars in US

Victoria Baker-Harber has revealed that she’s given birth to a baby girl following a “private” pregnancy.

The Made in Chelsea star, 32, welcomed her daughter Gaia Grace a month ago with gallery owner fiancé Inigo Philbrick, 33.

Inigo, who was arrested and charged with wire fraud in July during Victoria’s second trimester, is currently in custody in the US.

He has not yet met his daughter and Victoria revealed her heartbreak at having to raise her baby alone.

She told Hello magazine: “As hard as it’s been not to have Inigo around, I’ve been lucky to have amazing friends and amazing family.

Victoria kept her pregnancy a secret

“I decided to keep my pregnancy under wraps because it’s sort of a private thing. It was only really my parents and closest friends I told to start with.

“I am really excited for Gaia’s first Christmas, I am going to have all of my family around. Sadly probably won’t have Inigo around but as soon as I’m able to, I’m going to go and visit him so they can meet.”

Victoria said Gaia has become her number one focus and has changed her “entire world”.

Inigo escaped the police for eight months following accusations he stole more than $20million (£15million) from art dealers before he was arrested in the summer.

He allegedly scammed collectors and dealers by selling them the same artwork for inflated prices.

Inigo was arrested by the FBI in the Republic of Vanuatu, in Oceania, and charged with wire fraud and aggravated identity theft.

The gallery owner, if convicted, could face up to 22 years in prison, while his assets, estimated at $70million (£52million), have been frozen.

Victoria and Inigo began dating in 2017, reportedly just months after he welcomed a baby girl with his then-girlfriend Fran Mancini.

The reality TV star and Fran were believed to have been acquaintances, according to Vulture.
