LAUREN Pope says she "still looks five-months pregnant" after giving birth to her first baby at the weekend.
The former Towie star has spoken out about her "tough" labour as she reflects on how her body has changed since becoming a mum.
Lauren revealed she named her baby daughter Raine Anais who she welcomed with her millionaire boyfriend Tony Keterman on Saturday, 11 July.
The 37-year-old told the Daily Mail: "The birth was tough of course but she is worth every bit of pain, tears, sickness and exhaustion.
"I now feel at my most content, I may have painful sore parts of my body and a belly that still looks five months pregnant but I don't even care.
"All I care about is being the best possible mum I can be and to soak in every minute of every day with her."
Lauren quit Towie last year after nine years on screen.
She announced her daughter's birth this week sharing a polaroid picture of herself kissing the newborn, with Tony placing an affectionate arm around them both.
The little girl can be sleeping in a Moses basket in the background, with a second snap showing the baby clutching onto her parent's finger.
Lauren captioned the sweet post: "Our little lady has arrived! Raine Anais Keterman 11/7/20.⠀⠀
"You really are so perfect little Raine, thank you for choosing me to be your Mummy. We love you so, so much."
Lauren and Tony celebrated her first anniversary in December last year.
