Ferne McCann was inundated with compliments after sharing a full-body photo of herself post-pregnancy.
The 32-year-old announced the happy news earlier this month in a black-and-white video with the phrase ‘It’s a girl,’ as well as the newborn’s birth date of July 6.
Ferne set the video to a rendition of Shaggy’s Angel, with the words “Girl, you’re my angel.” You’re my sweet angel. You’re closer to me than my friends, darling.’
The former The Only Way Is Essex star has a second kid with her 32-year-old fiancé Lorri Haines, whom she married in July of last year.
She recently posted a picture of her post-partum physique on her fitness Instagram account, and she couldn’t be happier.
‘Finty’s arrival has left me in awe of my body all over again. I carried the flame and birthed the fire,’ she penned.
She added: ‘I really wasn’t sure whether to share this picture because it’s a funny thing isn’t it?
‘People have so much to say about other people’s choices with THEIR bodies. This is what MY BODY looks like post birth. I know some people will likely say I look great or I don’t need to put pressure on myself. Let me clear – I’m not.
‘However I’m ready to feel more confident and comfortable in MY own skin & I want to inspire other women to feel the same.’
She concluded the post: ‘I won’t be exercising until I’ve been given the all clear after my 6 week check but I can still lose weight and have energy and prioritise my wellbeing.’
Fellow celebrities and fans praised the star’s inspiring post, with former Towie star Danielle Armstrong replying: ‘Looking beautiful my darling the female body is powerful ✨🏻 I’m sure this post well defo inspo many women to join you on your journey.’
Another wrote: ‘We all shouldn’t be harsh on ourselves especially as women our bodies go through so much & we are so lucky & blessed. You look lovely mama.’
Ferne was rumoured to be pregnant with her second kid shortly after she and Lorri celebrated their one-year anniversary.
Her first kid is with her imprisoned ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins.
Her ex is serving a 20-year jail sentence for throwing acid in a nightclub in 2017 and hurting several others.
