Myleene Klass says being a mum changed the way she viewed her body after being ‘over-sexualised’ as a singer… as she hits back at criticism of her breastfeeding pictures

Myleene Klass says she sees her body in a completely different light after being ‘over-sexualised’ as a young pop star before falling pregnant and becoming a mother for the first time. 

The presenter became an overnight success after winning talent show Pop Stars as a member of short-lived manufactured group Hear’Say in 2001.

Racy photoshoots and a memorable bikini-clad appearance on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! would follow, but Myleene, 42, admits the early focus on her body is in stark contrast to how she views herself since becoming a mother.

Appearing on Instagram to launch Tommee Tippee’s Spill The Milk digital series, she said: ‘I was in a pop band, and everything was just so overly sexualised. I’ve done lingerie shoots, bikinis, the lot. 

‘Then you become a mum, and then suddenly you see your body in a completely different light. I want my daughters to feel body strong, body confident and be respectful to their bodies.” 

A proud parent to children Ava, 13, and Hero, nine, with ex Graham Quinn and son Apollo, nineteen months, with fiancé Simon Motson, the presenter admits she has been surprised by the mixed reaction from fans after choosing to breast-feed all three.

She said: ‘When I put up photos of me breast-feeding Apollo I could not believe that we had this [negative] reaction to it. 

‘If I was doing moves in a dance video, or like slut dropping on Tik Tok, no one would bat an eyelid. When you break it down, it just doesn’t make any sense!’ 

While she admits to feeling self-conscious when it came to breastfeeding her daughters in public, she has had a completely different attitude with her son.  

‘It’s just been a different experience,’ she said. ‘I feel like I’ve got my confidence and I don’t feel intimidated from a public perspective.’

However Myleene admits she has suffered painful consequences as a direct result of expressing milk for her children. 

‘Every time I have breast-fed I have had really chapped nipples,’ she said. ‘I’ve had mastitis countless times… If you’ve had mastitis [you know] it’s soooooo bad… the first time I had mastitis, I had one boob up here and it was lumpy. 

‘And the other boob kind of went under my armpit, it was lumpy, burning, I had a fever. I’ve never felt pain like it.’
