It has been a big year for Nadia Forde. This summer the actress and model married partner Dominic Day, a rugby player with Saracens.

Last month, the couple's first child, daughter Wyatt, turned one. "I had always wanted a baby," Nadia says now. She has been living in England with Day for several years now; the pair were originally set up by mutual friends, Peter Stringer and his wife Debbie. After having Wyatt, Nadia recalls how she essentially went to ground in the couple's London home.
