Chelsea Warren called her fortnight-old daughter Rebecca-Rae after Rebecca “Becky” Warren’s death last July following a nine-year battle with spinal cancer.

Becky, who lived in Cadiz Road, Dagenham, with her three children, enjoyed a final holiday with her entire extended family after friends and strangers raised thousands of pounds for the trip in Disneyland Paris, shortly before her death at the age of 35 last July.

“I’m overjoyed about the birth of my daughter,” explained Chelsea, 25, who gave birth to Rebecca-Rae on May 24 at Queen’s Hospital in Romford.

“I had no hesitation what her name was going to be, she was the most wonderful aunty.”

The Goresbrook Road, Dagenham, resident added: “I hope she’s looking down on us with the biggest, most beautiful smile that she always had.”
