Millie candidly revealed that for the first three months after Sienna’s birth, she struggled to even look in the mirror.
‘To be honest, it was quite difficult to see my body after having a baby. And I think it is for a lot of women, ‘she said.
“It can really feel like a shock, and maybe something that is hard to love – and hard to feel good about.

‘I felt self-conscious when I went out and didn’t want anything tight against my stomach.
And yes, I was a little embarrassed about my postpartum body. And it’s pretty sad that I felt that. It feels good to admit that and say, “Yes, I had a hard time looking in the mirror for the first three months.” ‘
But Millie, who has worked hard to gradually reintroduce her fitness regimen and nutrition in the months since Sienna was born, said she’s learned to love her figure.
Joking that she’s’ lived mainly in a tracksuit for the past year, ‘because of the pandemic, she added:'[My figure] definitely won’t go back to being exactly the same as before and I’m ok with that … I feel more feminine, and I really love it. ‘
The brunette beauty also touched upon Sienna’s diagnosis of hip dysplasia.
The diagnosis meant that Sienna had to wear a special harness for six to 12 weeks to treat the dysplasia, making it difficult for Millie to hug and breastfeed her daughter.

“It was a really difficult and scary time,” she said. ‘The stress of having a rather cold baby into a baby who is just crying and upset and there is nothing you can do.
‘It was really heartbreaking. But since she’s crawling normally and doing well, we are hopeful and remain positive that her hips are healthy. They noticed the condition early on so it shouldn’t affect her later in life. ‘
Millie also described what it was like to be a mother to her little girl when she said, ‘It’s like crazy stupid love. Your life is turned upside down. [I’ve] I’ve never felt love like that – it’s insane how much your heart opens and yes, it is incredible. ‘
Millie and Hugo originally dated for six months in 2011, before Millie dumped Hugo when she discovered he was cheating on her best friend and co-star Rosie Fortescue.

Millie then met her future husband, rapper Professor Green, 37, real name Stephen Manderson, whom she tied the knot with in September 2013.
The ex-couple had been married for two and a half years before finalizing their divorce in May 2016, the same week that Millie and Hugo made their renewed romance public.
Rapper Stephen has since welcomed a little girl of her own with girlfriend Karima McAdams. Actress Karima gave birth to daughter Slimane Ray Manderson earlier this month.
