Amy Childs felt "pressure" to lose her baby weight.

The "Only Way Is Essex" star - who has two young children, Polly, two, and a 11-month-old son - admits she was in "no rush" to ditch her baby weight like other celebrities might be.

She said: "When I had the baby I was bordering size 14 - and now I'm a size 10. I still want to lose half a stone - but there is no rush. I'm not like the other celeb mums that rush to lose weight - enjoy your babies I say. My babies are older now so I thought it was time to get healthy for myself. I had all these mums saying "When are you going to lose your baby weight?" - and I was just enjoying Polly. I was putting all my time into Polly, I didn't really eat healthily or work out as much. I was a new mum. I think mums nowadays put so much pressure on themselves to lose their baby weight. But now the kids are getting older, I'm thinking I'm getting more time for me."

And Amy has revealed she has been training a lot as of late, now her kids are a little older.

She told The Sun Online: "I am training a lot - I'm training four times a week. I'm eating really healthy - I'm on a really amazing diet. I used to skip it but now I'm eating breakfast, the most important meal of the day. There is no pressure for me to lose my baby weight - and that is an important message for all the mums out there. Enjoy your babies, they grow up too quickly. There are certain celebs, I won't say any names, who have lost all of their baby weight. But my priority was being a full time mum and not really worrying about that."
