He added: “The best advice I have heard is every child is different, no matter how well prepared you think you are there is no guarantee that it will make it easier. Just know that there are going to be good days and bad days but it is worth every moment for your beautiful child.

What specifically attracted you to the brand?
“The ethos of the brand, the fact that all their pieces are a timeless classic and will never go out of style.

Is it hard juggling being an ambassador and working in fashion with all your other commitments such as family life and Made in Chelsea?

Would you ever want to design your own range?
“Perhaps if the opportunity came up, I really enjoy fashion. I’m sure if something happened, I would definitely ask Binky’s opinion! Fairfax & Favor did an incredible campaign for Breast Cancer Care last October, I would love to work with them to perhaps design my own shoe to help raise money for a charity.”
