Vogue Williams has revealed that she tried to ‘hide’ her post-baby body for months after welcoming her daughter Gigi in July.
The Irish star, 34, explained that she ‘didn’t want to make anyone else feel bad’ about how she’d lost the weight following the birth of her second child.
Speaking with The Sun, the mother-of-two also discussed how she plans to have ‘definitely four’ children with husband Spencer Matthews, 34.

Vogue said: ‘There is so much pressure put on women about this and I didn’t want to add to that when, instead of worrying about losing the baby weight, we should be worrying about where our pelvic floor is at and how our mental health is doing.
‘It’s purely down to my body type that I went back to how I was before without too much effort, and I did find myself trying to hide that for the first few months.
‘I just didn’t want to make anyone else feel bad by being all, “hey, look at me after having a baby,” because the last thing anyone wants to see is someone who’s lost the weight quicker than you.’
Vogue added that it’s impossible to win online as people will always comment on posts, whether it’s saying she lost weight fast or carried the baby weight.

Vogue often shares snaps of her svelte physique online and had displayed her toned post-baby body for a tanning video on Instagram just six weeks after Gigi’s birth.
She revealed that she’d bounced back at incredible speed as she donned a skimpy blue bikini and was joined by Spencer to apply the product.
Elsewhere in her interview, the doting mum-of-two chatted about how she’s finding motherhood with her second child, admitting that she’s more laid-back with Gigi.
Vogue, who also revealed she and Spencer would like ‘definitely four’ children, praised her daughter saying the tot is very easy going and happily settles herself.
Although loving life with her new addition, Vogue said it has been hard at times having to see family members miss out on Gigi’s first year because of the pandemic.

Careful to emphasise that other families have it ‘much worse’, the Irish star explained that her brother has never seen his niece and her mum has only met Gigi once.
Vogue, who controversially jetted to St Barts with her brood in December, added that she’s not been home to Ireland in more than a year with many people there still waiting to meet her daughter.
Turning her attentions to lockdown, Vogue said the third lot of UK restrictions have been the toughest for her as it felt never-ending at times.
She also revealed that she went back to therapy as her anxiety was ‘pretty bad’ and has been taking some medication to help.

Luckily for the family, the Rule Of Six came into force last Monday meaning family and friends can reunite in groups of no more than six outdoors.
The Jump star will no doubt be keen to take advantage of the rules and visit her niece after sister-in-law Pippa Middleton, 37, gave birth to a baby girl named Grace earlier this month.
Pippa – the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge – and her husband James Matthews, 45, are also parents to son Arthur, two.
James is brother to Vogue’s husband Spencer, who she wed in the Scottish Highlands’ Glen Affric in June 2018.
The couple welcomed son Theodore in September that year, while daughter Gigi, now eight months, was born in July 2020.
