Lorraine Kelly’s pregnant daughter Rosie Smith, 29, reveals the gender of her unborn baby and admits she wants the child’s name to have ‘a Scottish connection’

Lorraine Kelly’s pregnant daughter has confirmed she will welcome a baby girl when she gives birth in September – and believes the child’s name will have strong ties to her Scottish heritage.

Rosie Smith – the breakfast TV presenter’s only child with husband Steve Smith – announced her pregnancy in April.

She has since confirmed that her first child with partner Steve White will be a girl, admitting that they always planned to have children as soon as possible.

Rosie, 29, shared HELLO!: ‘We had talked about it a lot and we both wanted to become parents from a very young age, so that our parents could be around as long as possible.’

Rosie is also keen to reference the child’s Scottish heritage when choosing a name, but admits she is finding it difficult to find one.

‘I really wanted to have a Scottish connection and we had a Scottish boy’s name sorted, but girls are difficult. I would like to have options,” she explained.

Celebrating Rosie’s pregnancy on her ITV show, Lorraine, 64, told viewers: ‘I’m going to be a grandma! How exciting is that? Granny Smith because, you know, my married name is Smith!

β€œSo I’m Grandma Smith! We’re all really excited, it’s huge and amazing and yeah… it cheers everyone up, which is just great!

‘Thank you to everyone who messaged me, it was very kind of you… thank you so much, it means a lot, it means a lot!’

Opening the show, Dr. Hilary: “I think congratulations are in order, don’t you grandma?”

Lorraine replied: ‘It’s not about me!…It is.’

She added that her husband Steve Smith told her “not to interfere too much,” admitting, “How hard is it going to be not to interfere?

‘We’re just so happy. It is the best and most exciting thing that has happened to our family. It’s just great!’

Rosie, who studied journalism at Edinburgh Napier University, told The Tab: ‘I don’t really see my mother as an inspiration. I mean, she’s not the reason I study journalism.

‘My father is a cameraman, which is actually how my parents met, while my uncle is in advertising and grandfather also worked in the television industry. So I guess it runs in the family.

‘I had no idea what I wanted to do at university, but my family knew a lot about journalism and media. I also see it as fun and not as work, which is important.’

β€œI still haven’t decided exactly what I want to do,” she added in 2015.
