Closer Online chatted to Made in Chelsea star Binky Felstead about her plans for her first Christmas as a mummy with baby India...

It's crazy to think that it was only earlier this year that Made in Chelsea stars Binky Felstead and Josh 'JP' Patterson surprised the world when they revealed they're expecting their first child.

When they made the shock announcement the couple were separated but had agreed to co-parent... but fast forward to today and the pair are back together and loving life with their adorable daughter India.

So, what exactly do the couple have planned for their first Christmas as a family? We sat down with Binky to find out...

Check out: The best maternity Christmas jumpers


The best maternity Christmas jumpers for pregnant women - SLIDER

ASOS1 of 9

Maternity Jumper with Rainbow Stripe and Fluted Sleeve, ASOS, £25.

Whilst this jumper doesn't feature any Christmas characters or decorations, the stripes are very festive. It's a classy jumper for mums-to-be who want something they'll still wear after Christmas.

Maternity Ellie Christmas Bump Jumper, Boohoo, £15.

This festive jumper is quite low-key - it's perfect for mums who want to get involved with the trend but don't want anything TOO over the top.

Maternity Sequin Penguin Christmas Jumper, Dorothy Perkins, £28.

We know penguins are a bit of a stretch to be included at Christmas, but it's sparkly and they live where there's snow so... It counts, right?!

Yours4 of 9

Maternity Santa Baby Christmas Top, Yours, £19.99.

Not a jumper, per se, but the Christmas pun is just too good to ignore!

Ok, so not only is this a PROPER Christmas jumper for pregnant peeps, but you can even get a matching one for your other children! So cuuuute.

Bump's First Christmas Maternity Top, JoJo Maman Bébé, £22.

Again, not exactly a Christmas JUMPER, but you can't refuse a Bump's First Christmas top!

Maternity Nadia Making My Little Pudding Jumper, Boohoo, £18.

This one may be a little garish, but who cares - the point of Christmas jumpers isn't to look stylish, it's to look just a little bit tacky!

Maternity Vic Mama Elf Christmas Jumper, Boohoo, £16.

Another slightly garish jumper, but we love the Mama Elf slogan across the top! The slight fairisle pattern is on trend too.

Maternity 'Baby It's Cold Outside' Christmas Jumper, Mothercare, £10.

Mothercare's Christmas jumper features snowflakes AND a slogan with a pun in - what more could you want?!

India's first Christmas...

It's a quandary many new parents face - what, if anything, should you buy your baby for their first Christmas?

So what does Binky plan to get her six-month-old daughter?

"I get her presents most days," the 27-year-old confessed.

"Not that she knows what they are. I think she's more excited about the wrapping than anything to be honest!"

And surprisingly, despite Christmas being just around the corner, Binky was still hazy on their plans for the big day.

She admitted: "We haven't got anything planned if I'm honest. We're still working things out!"

Whether Binky, India and JP spend the festive day at their own place or with Mummy Felstead (that would be our choice, we bet she makes a mean Christmas Day roast!), one thing's for certain - baby India will look incredibly cute!

The yummy mummy told us: "Josh keeps buying her elf outfits – she will not be wearing one of those but she's got lots of little outfits to potentially wear."

Mummy's Star - supporting women and families diagnosed with cancer

During our chat, Binky also opened up about her work with the charity Mummy's Star, which supports mums who are diagnosed with cancer during their pregnancy or within 12 months of a birth.

Talking about why she chose to become involved, Binky revealed: "I was incredibly fortunate during my own pregnancy and I was fit and well.

"Pregnancy and becoming a new mother is one of the most beautiful and precious experiences, but there are women out there who are far less fortunate than me.

"[They] are battling cancer during what should be the most joyous time in the world and it being near Christmas."

She added: "It is such an amazing charity."
