Amanda Holden Releases First Pictures Of Baby Hollie!

First picture of  Amanda Holden and baby Hollie with husband Chris Hughes and daughter Lexi PA

Proud mum Amanda Holden has released a gorgeous snap of her new baby daughter, Hollie Rose, two weeks after her dramatic birth.

Looking amazingly fit and well despite being 'critical' at Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea hospital in the days after Hollie's arrival, Amanda, 40, sits proudly next to her five-year-old daughter Lexi, who cradles baby Hollie, while besotted dad, record producer Chris Hughes, 40, keeps a protective arm around them all.

The family are seen posing against a backdrop of cards and flowers which arrived from well-wishers in the days following Amanda's discharge from hospital after her emergency Caesarean.

Although baby Hollie arrived early, she was fit and healthy, weighing in at just over six pounds, but Amanda lost so much blood she was kept in intensive care for three days before she could see her little girl.

Amanda was forced to abandon the Britain's Got Talent auditions when she went into early labour two weeks ago, but rumour has it she has already told her bosses she is desperate to get back and join the other judges in the next week or so - taking baby Hollie with her!

We're glad to see Amanda looking so well and happy now - and what a lovely family pic!
But, if true, what do you think of her plans to rejoin BGT so soon?
