‘I said he was a fighter when he was in the stomach’: Nicola Adams and girlfriend Ella Baig announce they’ve named son Taylor as they reflect on his premature birth
Nicola Adams and Ella Baig have revealed they have named their newborn son Taylor Nate Adams.
The boxer, 39, and his model girlfriend, 24, welcomed their son last month, and on Sunday introduced him in an interview and photo shoot with Hello! magazine
Speaking to the publication, Nicola said: “The birth of my son is the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. I can’t even explain the feeling – I felt this instant love.

Taylor was born a month early and weighed just 3lb 14oz, with Ella calling him a ‘fighter’.
She explained: “I said he was a fighter when he was in my stomach and he’s definitely come out that way. He’s progressing really fast. He’s trying to do things he shouldn’t be able to do yet, like hold his own bottle.
The couple revealed they had spent some time choosing Taylor’s name, opting to wait to see if the name suited her first.

Nicola went on to praise Ella, saying: “Watching Ella’s body change and watching her give birth was amazing. I’m so proud of her.”
The couple shared the happy news on Instagram last month that they had welcomed their first child along with a first photo of the baby’s feet, with his arms around her.
The couple, who previously revealed it took four rounds of IVF to get pregnant, wrote about their love for their son.

Model Ella wrote: “We are so excited to announce to the world that @babydamsadventures has arrived.
“The first moment we saw you we felt instant love and the strongest bond. We’ve been to the moon and back for you and can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives watching you grow ❤️#babyboy #twomoms #twomums.’
The baby already has his own Instagram account, and in addition to the first photo, the couple also shared a photo of them in the delivery room.
She had a caesarean section, while Nicola was by her side with love.
In May, Ella hit back at trolls after sharing sweet photos of her baby bump.
The model took to Instagram to post photos of herself in a gray dress cradling her baby bump as she blasted online trolls for their hateful comments about her pregnancy.
In a lengthy caption, Ella said that she and her former boxer girlfriend often see comments about how their baby isn’t really theirs because it’s “biologically impossible”.
She hit back at the “cruel” trolls and asked why people couldn’t be happy knowing their baby will be loved, instead of questioning them for using IVF and a sperm donor.
The couple, who have been together for four years, conceived after their fourth round of IVF, having started fertility treatment in 2019.
