I love you so much I could burst 🎈💗. ___________________________________________________ Thankyou @bexleyconfettiballoons & @cupid_creative for the balloons & flowers for Sunday’s party. How epic is the entrance of the soft play. Rapunzel’s hair made out of balloons 😱👏🏼💙🎈👸🏼
Opening up about her decision, Ferne said: "I’ve definitely got my guard up, and I am not just going to introduce anyone into my baby’s life.
"I think at first I want to find someone for me, and if he’s my Mr Right and it feels good, then within time I will obviously introduce him to my baby. But I want to keep it fairly separate, because I want to find someone for me."

Take us back to spa life 💆🏼♀️🧖🏼♀️...instead we have both been up since 3.30am with jet lag 😳. ________________________________________________ Nothing I enjoy more than having some girly downtime with my baby girl at the spa. Take us back! We’ve had an incredible stay with @bookingcom and The Four Seasons Kyoto and have created memories that will last a lifetime. We can’t wait to book our next adventure… #ad #LiveCurious
And speaking about her relationship status, she added: "I really want a boyfriend now, I’m so ready. Dating is completely different now I’ve got a child.
"I can’t just frivolously go on a date, because even just a night out with the girls there’s a lot more planning and I have to get Sunday looked after.
"So dating is interesting, it’s completely different now I’ve got a baby because ultimately she comes first, she’s my priority - but there’s a few guys I’ve got my eye on. We’ll see."
The fourth season of Ferne's ITVBe show, First Time Mum, is out now - and speaking about the new series, Ferne said: "So obviously started off following my pregnancy and when I had a newborn, and basically learning how to be a mother - now it just feels so different, there's a real different edge to this series because now Sunday is walking and talking and very much aware of what's going on.
"So she's like a little character in herself and it's still the highs lows of being a single parent, and everything else in between.
Ferne McCann: First Time Mum is on Wednesdays at 9PM on ITVBe
