Made In Chelsea star Ollie has been very open about his journey to have children, but admits it’s ‘annoying’ when people are sticking their nose in.

Speaking on the Twinning It podcast, co-hosted by twin mums Jenna Good and Alison Perry, author of OMG It’s Twins, he said:  “What annoys me is that people say you have no idea how your life is going to change.

“I do understand, that’s why we’ve gone through IVF, it’s not going to be like it was before, but let me go on my own adventure.

“It’s condescending sometimes becomes a bit annoying it’s bit like ‘you wait darling’. They say wait for the mummy police, or our case daddy police.”

Ollie went on to admit he’s “not ready yet” for their arrival apart – and they have been forced to change the name of their daughter because it was too similar to a name one of Binky’s friends chose.

He explained: “We have both names and goodness me that’s a struggle. We tell everyone who we meet what our baby names are.

“One was a girl I knew years ago a beautiful girl. We came up with name similar and i told Binky who told her best friend who had a baby called that as well who went mental at me so we’ve changed it somewhat.

“It’s a very similar name but not the same name. We’re not the kind of people who want normal names.

“We love old Greek old roman old Shakespeare almost names. Cressida was a name we nearly went for River but lots of people have that name. For the boy I like names like, Obi and Orthello. I found girls names incredibly difficult but boys names came easily.”
