Speaking in a sweet interview alongside the stunning family snap, Natalie joked that her father-in-law, Booker Prize-winning novelist Sir Salman Rushdie, 72, is like the ‘baby whisperer’.

Natalie, who is married to Rushdie’s son Zafar, 40, told the magazine: ‘Holding Rose in my arms for the first time was overwhelmingly magical. I can’t explain how much I love her.

‘It’s a love I’ve never experienced in my life. We feel so incredibly lucky that she is here and healthy.’ 

Natalie revealed that Rose is Rushdie’s first grandchild and the award-winning novelist travelled from New York in full PPE for 12 hours with two weeks of self-isolation in the UK just so he could meet the newborn.

Elsewhere, talking about her birth, Natalie revealed that she had a C-section which she made ‘magical and calm’ by listening to her favourite jazz songs.

The singer sweetly shared that Rose was delivered to I’ve Got You Under My Skin and the next song was her wedding song to Zafar, Nat King Cole’s Unforgettable.

Natalie revealed in May that she was expecting her first child with Zafar although had suffered with morning sickness and lost a stone in weight.

The singer admitted that pregnancy wasn’t all ‘wonderful and glowing’ like depicted in the movies but rather ‘hard work’.

The pair married in New York in June 2016 and this is their first child together.

They are also the proud owners of an adorable dog called Pickle, who recently turned five-years-old.
