Fans of Big Fat Gypsy Wedding may recall the super lavish wedding of Swanley and Josie last year, and in today’s Sun, Josie has been showing off her little gypsy baby, and has revealed that she loves giving her daughter lots of bling.
As you can see above, in the Sun’s picture of 17 year old Josie and the baby– who’s also called Josie – although she’s just nine months old, baby Josie wears diamond ear-rings, lipgloss and mascara.
Josie told the paper, “We’ve spent thousands on her wardrobe, it’s all designer. I like to dress her in frilly, girly things. Lots of lace, pink, satin, glitter.
“She’s got far more clothes than me, probably more than Posh Spice’s baby — but I don’t want to dress her like that.
“I think Harper Seven is dressed like a granny. All woollen dresses and cardigans — yuck!”
Of her daughter, Josie continued, “I’m glad it was a girl, she’s a princess. Whatever she wants she’ll have. She’s got to look good.
“I shaved her head when she was about a month old because it will make her hair grow thicker. It’s a thing traveller girls do.
“I put lipgloss and mascara on her when I’m bored. We had her ears pierced when she was three months and she’s already got diamond studs.
“She wears my gold bracelet which I had when I was a baby and she’s got lots of other jewellery. She likes a bit of bling.
“Traveller girls are brought up to look good. Baby Josie will start having manicures when she’s three or four. And she’ll have sunbeds when she’s about 13.
“I don’t like spray tans, I think they look cheap and nasty.”
And 21 year old Swanley added, “She’ll want for nothing. She’ll be spoilt. That’s my role in life, to provide for my women.”
Of her daughter’s future, Josie said, “She’ll go to primary school but that will be it.
“What does she want to learn maths and all that for? She doesn’t need it.
“The way I was brought up, she’ll be brought up. She’ll never have to work, she’ll be a lady of leisure.
“She won’t want to work. The men provide, her job is to clean up and cook — how can we work on top of that?
“I would like her to be able to read and write but I taught myself from magazines. At least if she can read she will be able to read signs when she drives.
“After leaving school she’ll cook and clean with me until she finds a good husband to look after her.”
Swanley added, “I would feel ashamed if Josie was out working, I would feel I wasn’t providing properly for her.
“I want to make sure that baby Josie doesn’t work either. Any boy who wants to date her will have to show me he can look after her.
“Traveller girls are chaperoned when they start dating and baby Josie will be.
“The tradition is for boys and girls to get together on Sundays. The girls get all dressed up, then meet up with the guys somewhere.
“But they are always chaperoned. Josie always had her sisters with her when we met up and baby Josie will be the same.
“We would both prefer her to marry a traveller but if she does fall for a ‘gorger’ (non-traveller) then as long as he is nice to her I don’t mind.
“But he’ll only be allowed to date her after he’s passed the dad test.”
The couple are now planning for baby Josie’s christening, and her mum is excitedly planning the baby’s christening gown.
She said, “I’m having it made by a dressmaker. It’s going to be amazing, as big and beautiful as my wedding dress.”
