Made In Chelsea star Victoria Baker-Harber has revealed she is mother to a baby girl following a secret pregnancy.

The socialite, 32, told Hello! magazine she had welcomed her beloved daughter Gaia Grace one month ago with gallery owner partner Inigo Philbrick, 33 - who was arrested and charged with wire fraud in July during the designer's second trimester.

Inigo, who is in custody in the US, has not met his daughter, with the reality star speaking of her heartbreak as she raises her baby alone.

The reality star said: 'As hard as its been not to have Inigo around, I've been lucky to have amazing friends and amazing family.

'I decided to keep my pregnancy under wraps because it's sort of a private thing. It was only really my parents and closest friends I told to start with.

'I am really excited for Gaia's first Christmas, I am going to have all of my family around. Sadly probably won't have Inigo around but as soon as I'm able to, I'm going to go and visit him so they can meet.' 

Victoria added that Gaia had changed her 'entire world' and that she has become her number one focus.

According to Vulture, the TV star and the entrepunuer embarked on a relationship in 2017, just months after he welcomed a baby girl with his then-girlfriend Fran Mancini - an Argentine part-time art dealer and perfumer.

It is unclear when Inigo and Fran broke up, but Victoria and his ex were believed to be acquaintances. MailOnline has contacted Victoria's representatives for further comment. 

The jet-setting art fraudster was arrested over the summer, after escaping the police for eight months following accusations he stole more than $20million (£15million)  from art dealers. 

The Connecticut native allegedly scammed collectors and dealers by selling them the same artwork for inflated prices before his fraud was uncovered in 2019.

It's a spectacular fall from grace for the contemporary art scene's wonderboy, who opened galleries in Mayfair and Miami, and seemed to have a 'Midas touch' for investing in works by emerging artists who went on to become successful.

Inigo was arrested by the FBI in the Republic of Vanuatu, in Oceania, and charged with wire fraud and aggravated identity theft, which could see him spend 22 years in prison, while his assets, estimated at $70million (£52million) , have been frozen.
