The former The Only Way Is Essex star gave birth to her son – whom she has with her ex-partner Ritchie – 18 months ago and had been keeping his name a secret, but has now revealed she named the tot after his father.
Whilst speaking about motherhood, Amy – who also has daughter Polly, who turns three next month, with Bradley Wright – told The Sun newspaper:
‘I love everything about being a mum.
‘My daughter’s getting older now she’s three now and she’s just absolutely amazing. She’s a girly girl, and my little boy Rich is amazing. He’s a lovely little boy. Being a mum is the best thing I’ve ever done and I love it’.
The 29-year-old beauty previously insisted she wouldn’t be making her son’s name public, as she wanted to keep his life as private as possible.
‘We decided to keep him out of the public eye.
‘It was something when I was pregnant that we decided to do, and obviously I put Polly on social media, but with my little boy we just decided not to.
‘It is hard because sometimes I just want to show him off, but at the same time we did decide it’.
Amy has Rich with her ex-boyfriend Ritchie, whom she split from last summer after two years together.
At the time of their split, sources said the former couple were still “friends”, and it was claimed Ritchie would continue to be “a big part” of his son’s life.
One insider said:
‘They broke up on good terms and will remain friends. He’s still a big part of her son’s life and sees her regularly.
‘Her children are the biggest part of her life and they both want the best for their children’.
