Sharing a string of photos of herself in lingerie and with her daughter Matilda, four, she said she wanted to be a good example to her, and to Delilah, who will be two later this month.

I've decided to stop editing my pictures to be a better role model to my daughters 💞✨ beautiful lingerie set @pourmoiltd 💞 I've been lucky enough to carry two healthy babies and nurse them both for nearly two years. My skin on my stomach has changed, my boobs massively have ( no creepy comments from any creepy men here this is a post about body confidence for other women, I will just delete and block) the change in my boobs definitely has made me feel less confident in myself but I wouldn't change a thing 💞✨ I have cellulite, I don't have a big bum i have edited it in the past as it's something I am self conscious of. I'd look at other women on Instagram and put myself down for not looking like that. Me and Matilda were dancing around here 😅 I want to teach her to love and feel confident in her own skin and that beauty is in the inside and doing that by example x This set is from the @pourmoiltd Charity Edit with 100% of the profits from sales going to 4 amazing charities ✨ swipe up is on story and a video of body confidence realness 💞✨
