EXCLUSIVE: Brian and Arthur share first pictures of baby Blake

In 2019, Brian Dowling and Arthur Gourounlian opened up for the first time, to VIP, about how they were all aboard “the baby train”.

And now they are introducing baby Blake to the world on the cover of the October issue of VIP Magazine.

“We are just over the moon and so in love with her,” Brian tells us in a new exclusive interview.

While they couldn’t be happier to welcome their glamorous little girl into their world, they originally admitted that they thought she was going to be a little boy!

“It’s funny, we were actually convinced we were having a boy, because in the first scan they referred to her as a he. They said, ‘he’s perfect’ so we were later shocked to find out it was going to be a girl!” Brian explains.

While Arthur adds: “But we had the name Blake whether it was a boy or girl, and then we added Maria Rose after our two mums.”

Of course, Brian was all praise for his sister, Aoife who acted as their surrogate, telling us: “Aoife is so strong, and she’s handled everything with such grace. I remember saying to her at one point about bringing baby stuff into the house and whether it would upset her and she said, ‘why would it? This isn’t my baby.’ I truly want the best for my sister. I want her to meet someone, to have the life that she wants, because she so deserves it.”
