On his name Harvey Halfpenny:

J: “Craig is Halfpenny outside of work too. He took my surname when we got married because, being the youngest of three girls, I was the last Halfpenny in the family and really wanted to keep it.”

C: “I’d always really loved the name anyway, and to me it was an honor and privilege to take Jill’s name. I don’t see why it should always be the woman who changes. But I have had some quite strong reactions when I’ve told people – especially from men.”

J: “It was Craig’s decision to give Harvey the middle name Rhys – he thought it would be cool if his initials were HRH.”

C: “His Royal Halfpennyness!”

On looking forward to milestones:

J: “I can’t wait to hear him speak. I want to know what he sounds like. And just getting to know him, really; discovering his personality.”

C: “I’m already picturing him racing around the house in his muddy wellies. I’m looking forward taking him places and teaching him things. I can’t wait to hear him laugh. I’m excited about everything – all of it.”

On having more children:

J: “I would definitely like to have more than one, maybe two, hopefully three . . .”

C: “We were already talking about having another one a week after Harvey was born. And it would be nice if there wasn’t too large a gap between them.”
