Lily Cole Welcomes Daughter Wylde

Lily Cole is a model mama.

The British model, 27, and boyfriend Kwame Ferreira welcomed their first child, daughter Wylde Cole Ferreira, on Friday, Sept. 11, she announced on her website.

“Delighted to say we had a little girl,” the 27-year-old tweeted along with a photo of Wylde’s tiny hand.

In another photo shared to Instagram, a bare-faced and beaming Cole smiled as her tiny newborn rest in her arms.

“Me and my little girl,” she wrote.

Cole shared a special poem on her site in honor of her and Ferreira’s new addition.

“Born on the hottest day. Ordinary Extraordinary Witchcraft. Wilderness,” she wrote. “Love beyond doubt. Love, a fact of life. Without fear or choice. Wylde Cole Ferreira. We have a little girl – YAY!”

Cole and Ferriera, the CEO of design and engineering collective Kwamecorp, have been dating since 2012.

The star broke the news of her pregnancy back in February through a blog post on Impossible, the social network she created with Ferriera.

“After working together for a long time Kwame and I fell in love, and I am very happy to share our news that we are expecting our first child together,” she wrote at the time.

Never heard of her, don’t recognize her face. Congrats on the healthy babe; sorry for her name. A girl growing up with a name that sounds like “WILD” is no good. Ha! Unless it’s some weird Garlic pronunciation I don’t know about. xo

Linni on

“Garlic” pronunciation? Lol

I googled her images and shes actually very pretty…with make up. This picture does absolutely NOTHING for her image as a model

Sunny on

Who? Model? Uhm…. Okay. Think she named her after Wyldstyle from The Lego Movie. Lol.

Geesh, what’s with the bashing of her looks? Really, no wonder most female celebs don’t dare to leave the house (or in some cases even post photos on social media!) without caking on the make-up first!

That aside, congrats to them!

BTW, so nice to see people NOT bashing a woman for posting a picture of herself feeding her baby for once!
