‘Thank you for all of your wonderful well wishes. We are great & loving our little Bonnie bubble. She’s just the best,’ she wrote. 

Another highlight on model Emma’s Instagram Story captured Bonnie’s tiny feet, where she simply captioned her name with a bow. 

Last December, the new parents announced their baby news on their one year wedding anniversary, with Emma debuting her baby bump in a sweet video.

The clip showed the moment the couple were pronounced husband and wife in 2020, before cutting to Oliver holding up a newborn jumper with the phrase ‘Yeah baby!’ embroidered on it.

Emma captioned the clip ‘1 year married, 1 yeah baby on the way. We are bursting with love and gratitude for our very precious little growing gift!’ 

Last year, Oliver revealed he and Emma only met face to face after they spent a staggering four years messaging each other.   

Oliver explained that he had been in Scotland for five days to do Personal Appearances and go partying, back in his Made In Chelsea days.

He said: ‘I hadn’t seen any culture and I became good mates with these guys there and they said look ‘you should go and check out this art gallery called Kelvin Grove.  

‘So I was like “ok cool”, so I went down there and I was on the ground floor and I came into the central room and there was this long catwalk.

‘It was this graduate fashion show, and so I’m standing there at the front and this model walks down and it’s Emma. And I’m like “oh my gosh, this chick is out of control.” And we catch eyes and then after she’s doing her show, doing her thing.  

‘I went back to my buddies and I said “guys, I saw this girl, described what she looked like, she was just insane!

‘And they were like “sounds like this girl Emma Louise.” So I was like “show me”. So they showed me a picture and I was like “oh my god that’s her.” I was probably just like ‘I’ll probably never see her again.’

The Made In Chelsea star admitted: ‘Had I not decided to go to this particular place on that day I don’t think we’d be together now and I always look back on that moment.’ 

But, a few weeks later, when Oliver returned to Edinburgh for another PA, he saw a photograph of Emma modelling jewellery.

‘I’m standing at the baggage reclaim and I look up and there’s this huge billboard for this jewelry company, and it was Emma modelling this jewellery on this billboard.   

‘And I was like “oh my god” and it was the same guys from Glasgow who picked me up and I was like “guys I just saw her on this billboard, it’s a sign. I need to get her number or find her or whatever it is.” And I ended up finding her on Facebook.’ 

Proudlock sent a friend request, which spurred Emma to drop him a message, and their communication began.

He explained: ‘We ended up talking on Facebook for, I don’t know, two or three months maybe and then she was in Glasgow this time.  

‘I was down in London and then about a year in she moved down to London with modelling, we got each other’s number.

‘We then messaged for three years. But we never met, and it was a weird one. She was seeing someone at the time, nothing serious but we would just message just like harmless stuff.’   

After messaging for years without ever having met, Oliver decided to go to the commonwealth games in Glasgow, after hearing that Emma would be there and knowing that they were both single.

‘I was like “I have got to go.” I messaged my buddies, same guys from all those years back, and I’m like “guys, I found her four years later. Guys, it’s time. I need your help.”‘  

After travelling up to Glasgow, Proudlock messaged Emma to let he know he was there. 

Oliver explained that Emma made the train with about a minute to spare, running down the platform carrying numerous bags. 

He admitted: ‘I was just like “oh my god” I just remember that moment so well, and that was the first time we actually met, on a train journey from Glasgow to London.’

And, it appears that Emma was definitely worth the wait.
