Millie insisted she isn’t attempting to regain her pre-pregnancy weight and is focusing on maintaining a strong mental and physical health.

Sharing a stunning snap wearing a black sports bra and turquoise gym leggings, Millie told fans: ‘I am about 5KG heavier than pre-pregnancy currently and feeling great. 

‘I am not aiming to be the same weight as before. My goal is to feel strong physically and mentally. I work out because I enjoy it not to meet a certain weight on the scales.’

Millie also shared a snap while pregnant with her first child and confessed she has no idea how much she weighed at the the time because she stopped using the scales.

The mother-of-one showcased her burgeoning bump in a black bikini and wrote: ‘I don’t know because I didn’t weigh myself during the last few months of my pregnancy or the first few months after…

‘Be kind to yourself! Your body grew a baby human.’

Giving her tips for staying positive, she said: ‘Exercising at home or going for a walk every day. Speaking to friends and family on FaceTime/Zoom. Cooking my favourite meals, playing with Sienna. Listing the things I am grateful for.’

In November, Millie reflected on her first six months of motherhood in a candid interview.

The TV personality spoke to Mother And Baby about the affect ‘mum police’ trolls have had on her self esteem as well as her changing relationship with her body. 

She explained: ‘There are definitely some mum police out there that really will like jump on you and criticise anything you do. You can’t please everybody.

‘I really just try and take a deep breath, put my phone down or go for a walk if it’s really got to me but I think you just have to rise above it.’   

But the TV star admitted she’s found huge positives in social media in her new role as a mum, especially when she shared her family’s experience when Sienna was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at three-months-old. 

The little one had to spend six weeks in a brace and will continue to have weekly appointments and scans every six months until she is three-years-old. 

Millie said she grew emotional when her followers shared their own experiences with the condition.
