Initially Amy struggles with writing the lyrics for ” Baby Baby “, it was when she saw Millie, her six-week-old daughter that Amy said to herself ” Oh, baby baby “, resulting in the lyrics to the song taking about ten minutes in all to write. In the booklet for the Album Heart in Motion, it mentions her daughter. ” This song is dedicated to Millie, whose six-week-old face was my inspiration “. Her daughter appeared on stage during Amy’s performance at the 34th Grammy Awards.
The accompanying music video was directed by D.J. Webster, who has also worked with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jeff Beck and The Alan Parsons Project. The video begins with Amy getting attention from other men, despite the attention she stays loyal to her lover, acted by model Jme Stein.
Director D.J. Webster said the idea behind the video was to create a picture of the relationship that everybody wants. Amy added ” I think when you get film where there is a good sense of humor and mutual respect and people are just having a good time, everybody wants a piece of that “.
