When Terri congratulated Alesha on her new arrival, she replied: "There is! I call it my little kangaroo pouch!"

And when asked about the dress, Alesha replied: "Spanx are a girl’s best friend Terri, let’s be honest. It takes a lot of effort, it takes a lot of work, just to get Spanx on!"

Alesha added: "When I had my first I didn't leave the house for 2 months. But with Anaya I'm out the house and in America. I don’t know if it’s just the fact that she’s my second and I’m more relaxed but I’m happy so nothing feels stressful."

And speaking about staying in shape, she said: "I've always allowed my body to do what it naturally does. I’ve not gone on any silly diets. I think getting help has really helped, having my mum around.

"Sleep is everything. Honestly, when you have more than five hours sleep with a new born baby, you can take on the world."

Alesha announced the birth of Azura on Instagram last month, sharing an adorable photo of her captioned: "Anaya Safiya 💜 born 20.08.19 💜

"7 weeks ago this little angel came into our lives! As I celebrate my birthday today I feel like the luckiest girl on the planet 💜".
