Former Made in Chelsea stars Binky Felstead and Joshua ‘JP’ Patterson posed for an exclusive photoshoot with HELLO! magazine as they prepare to spend their first Christmas together with their baby daughter India. In the accompanying interview, the couple tell HELLO! they can’t wait to see the festive season through six-month-old India’s eyes.
“With India in our lives, we’re really caught up in the whole spirit of the occasion. I love putting on Christmas music, lighting candles, wrapping presents – and watching our little one’s eyes light up at the wonder of it all,” Binky tells the magazine.
JP adds: “The best thing about Christmas is having India. As you get older you lose the magic of it, but now that we have a child we can relive those enchanting experiences with her. We’re so looking forward to seeing her face light up when we unwrap her presents – some colourful toys that flash and make noises.”

This will also be the first time that the couple, who split up before Binky discovered she was pregnant, will be together over the festive season, having reunited when they became parents. “The most important thing was that we were together because we wanted to be, not just because of the baby,” Josh explains. “We realised how much we missed and loved each other, and having India has sealed our love.”
Becoming a mother, says Binky, has changed her life. “Everything I do is for India,” she says. “Before she came along I was drifting, but now I love being in a routine. Since becoming a mum I’ve learned so much. India comes first and I don’t care about the little things any more. Being part of our little family gives me a warm fuzzy glow.”
