"She was born a few days ago," Candy revealed at the Wonderland Ball held by the Reuben Foundation to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

"We have decided to call her Luka Violet Toni Candy."

He added: "Her nickname will be LuLu, but, obviously, if she ever goes into business, LuLu Candy just doesn't quite work. My father's nickname was always TC."

Valance herself did not attend the charity event at Bridgewater House in Westminster.

"Holly is at home," Candy added. "We aren't having any help at the moment. Holly doesn't want any; she wants to do it all ourselves at this stage, but that might change - it has only been a few days."

Nick Candy's father Tony died just six weeks before the birth of daughter Luka.

He continued: "[Holly] is a perfect mother. It was a natural birth. She is from a big Australian family, with younger siblings, so she knows exactly what she is doing.

"It is such a shame that dad died six weeks before Luka was born, but I had the best role model possible in him, so, hopefully, if I can be anything like the father he was to me, when it comes to raising Luka, we'll be on to a winner."

Holly Valance's pregnancy was first revealed following a court case in which she tried to stop an Australian magazine publishing images of her bump.
