Harry Judd, 30, and his wife, Izzy, 32, became parents last month to their first daughter, Lola.

However their journey to parenthood has not been easy.

Izzy - who Harry married in 2012 - has polycystic ovary syndrome.

The couple suffered a devastating miscarriage with their first pregnancy, and Izzy struggled to fall pregnant naturally.

Because of this, they turned to IVF to help them start their family together.

Speaking about becoming a father at last, Harry told Hello! Magazine: “IVF is just mind blowing and such an amazing thing to give us this family.

“All babies are miracles, but she fought the race.”

Naturally Lola is even more precious to the couple because she is a ‘rainbow baby’.


A rainbow baby is a baby born after the loss of a previous child.

“It is understood that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of any storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn’t mean that the storm never happened, or that we are not still dealing with its aftermath.

“It means that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds.

“Storm clouds may still hover, but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of colour, energy and hope.”

Speaking about the fact that little Lola arrived after a devastating miscarriage, Harry had this to say:

“We think about the miscarriage, but then if that hadn’t happened we wouldn’t have met Lola.

“I don’t look back at that time and think, ‘What a shame.’

“I look back at think, ‘That’s what it was.’”

Harry’s bandmate, Tom Fletcher, has also welcomed his second baby with his wife Giovanna.

And former Strictly star Harry recently revealed that he had introduced his baby girl to Tom’s newest baby boy, Buddy.

He wrote: “Lola just met Buddy.

“Buddy cried and Lola slept, then Lola cried and Buddy slept. Then they both slept.

“The end.”


Harry and Izzy welcomed little Lola on the 25th January, with the McFly drummer taking to Twitter to announce the news excitedly to his fans.

He wrote: “Lola Rose Emma Judd entered the world at 8:43pm 25/1/16. Both Mummy and Lola are doing very well.

“Izzy is my hero and I love my girls.”

He later added: “Lola is asleep on my chest. I'm in heaven.”

The name Lola is a feminine given name, a short form of the Spanish name Dolores, meaning "sorrows", a name taken from a title of the Virgin Mary.

The name Rose is a floral one, meaning “fame”, while the name Emma means “whole, universal”.

All of which are just PERFECT monikers for Harry’s little lady.

However, while he’s absolutely besotted with his little daughter, Harry admitted that watching his wife go through pregnancy and give birth has made him love her even more.

The Essex-born musician told Hello: ”I’ve never been so in love and proud of Izzy.

“To see your wife going through all that for the greater good, doing it for us and our family, it's just incredible."

Congratulations once again to the happy couple!
