Millie Mackintosh has been met with praise for sharing a photo of her postpartum body, saying she has “no intention” of “rushing to get her body back”.

The former Made In Chelsea star, who welcomed her daughter into the world with husband Hugo Taylor two months ago, spoke out as she revealed she doesn’t feel “totally happy” with her body after giving birth.

The 30 year old shared a photo of herself posing in front of a mirror with 10-week-old daughter Sienna while showing off her body as she wears underwear.

Alongside the image, the proud mum wrote: “With Sienna nearing 10 weeks old nothing has given me more purpose than knowing that a small life depends entirely on me to feed and nourish her as she grows.

“I try to live a healthy, balanced lifestyle and I count myself lucky that throughout my adult life I’ve felt and identified as pretty body confident but now all that has changed along with every other aspect of my life, which makes me look at my body in a totally new light and it’s been a big adjustment!”

Millie continued: “Fitting into my pre pregnancy clothes seems a long way off and I have no intention of rushing into ‘getting my body back’ but it would be a lie if I said I feel totally happy and at one with my body post pregnancy.


“The process has been made a lot harder by some overly strong and hurtful comments online about my appearance (as much as you try and ignore them). I’m in awe of what my body has achieved over the last year but I find it hard not seeing the girl I know to be me looking back at me in the mirror.”

However, fitness fanatic Millie says looking back at pictures of herself before she had Sienna made her realise “how critical” she was of her own body.

She wrote: “I now see photos of myself pre-pregnancy and remember thinking at the time I didn’t like my body at certain angle but now I look back and think I looked great!

“It’s made me realise how critical I am of myself and how it’s so crucial, as women, that we learn to let ourselves off the hook. My mantra has always been that you exercise because you love your body not because you hate it, so any movement I do now is with the intention to feel good and never to punish myself.

She finished by adding: “Sienna is worth every extra inch, pound and stretch mark. My body made me a Mother and for that I'll always be grateful.”

Millie was praised for the honest post, with one fan writing: “Finally a celeb post body that resembles the rest of us mere mortals. You look incredible, a super fit, strong mumma. How your body is supposed to look 10weeks later…”

While a third added: “this is beautiful. you’re beautiful Millie. I’ve loved you for years and i’m so happy you’re a mum. Sienna is just so adorable.”
