Tamara Ecclestone has revealed her newborn baby daughter has already got her first passport in preparation for her jet-set lifestyle.
The heiress, who gave birth to Sophia earlier this month, told Hello! magazine: "When we had her passport photo taken - she'll be travelling abroad a lot with us when she's older - her eyes were wide open."
Tamara, the daughter of Formula 1 boss Bernie, has created a lavish nursery for her daughter at the west London home she shares with husband Jay Rutland complete with a circular white crib shipped over from Los Angeles.
She said: "Motherhood is the best thing that's ever happened to me, and I'm enjoying every minute of it. I knew I would love it - I just didn't know how much.
"I feel born to be a mother. Although I've always wanted children, I've never felt that intensely before. But Sophia has turned my world upside down in an amazing way and I've never been happier. Having my own family with Jay is just perfect."
Speaking about the birth, she said: "When Sophia let out a cry straight away, I was so relieved. My greatest fear was that we wouldn't hear anything. I held her first and it was such an amazing feeling. Jay and I had wondered what she would look like and she was absolutely perfect. She was born with loads of dark hair, like us both, and stunning blue eyes."
