Millie Mackintosh is opening up about her newfound motherhood – and says she’s not rushing to drop the pregnancy pounds anytime soon.
The former Made In Chelsea star, 30, welcomed daughter Sienna with husband Hugo Taylor last month.
Speaking to Glamour mag, Millie says her body has changed dramatically during her pregnancy.
She explained: “I’ve started walking every day, I’ve started doing a bit of strength training again and it’s nice to feel like I’m just getting stronger.
“I just don’t like the term, ‘getting my body back,’ because I think it’s a new body, it’s different, you’ve given birth. So, it’s not your old body anymore.”
Millie welcomed little Sienna at the height of the pandemic in the UK, which clouded her excitement a little bit as she worried about Hugo not being able to be there for the birth.
She went on: “That was one of the ways it did really affect me – just not knowing would Hugo be able to be there for the birth or not.
“I was so glad that Hugo was there, and it was the most incredible moment of my life. I’m really lucky that during coronavirus I gave birth and still managed for it to be a really positive experience.”
Millie tied the knot with the I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here star Hugo in June 2018.
Since becoming a mother, Millie has kept her fans updated on her journey through motherhood on Instagram.
The former reality TV star admitted that she’s now focusing in on raising Sienna, and says being a mother has given her a fresh perspective on life.
She concluded: “It’s amazing. When she smiles, I just think, ‘this is the reason for life. This is literally why we’re here’. This is the best moment ever!”
