Katie Piper and Tess Daley

The TV personality took a spin with Tess Daly where she spoke about being a mother to two children.

Katie Piper has spoken about being a mother after welcoming her second child with husband Richard Sutton. 

The TV personality gushed about her 10-week-old daughter, Penelope, in a brand new interview with Tess Daly as part of Heart's campaign with Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace.

Katie, who is also mother to three-year-old Belle, claims the tot has "thrown herself" into he role of being a big sister and the relationship between the pair is adorable. 


"Belle has really thrown herself into the role of being the big sister. She's very much like 'I'm the big sister,  I'm the eldest in the house', even though she is only three and a half years old!"

However, it seems that Penelope hasn't quite got to grips with how careful you have to be with newborn babies just yet.

"She hasn't quite learnt the boundaries," Katie explains.

"We'll be in the car and suddenly it will go very quiet, and then I'll ask her 'what are you doing?' and she'll reply 'Oh, mummy I'm just seeing how far back I can bend Penelope's finger back."

Elsewhere, the busy mum-of-two divulged about her "hectic" school-run, which she claims is great for bonding, despite admitting she relies heavily on her morning pick-me-up of strong coffee.

"On reflection, it's great because it's just me and Belle and we do things that we wouldn't normally do at home. She is a big Disney lover, so we sing a bit and we actually say scripts."


Mothers Day is drawing nearer and, as it does every year, it really gets me thinking about what it means to be a mum. My daughters are my world, and I know I will be my own Mum’s world until I am old and grey. Being a Mum can be the best thing you’ll ever do, and also the hardest. I’ve had amazing moments of joy and really low moments too. It never stays the same. My daughters will grow up, and I’ll grow with them through all the stages they’ll go through. Knowing how to navigate it all can be so tricky. When writing my new book From Mother to Daughter, I spoke to so many people. Experts, mums around the country, and my very own lovely mum. I’ve collected all of their wisdom, and my own thoughts, to help guide you or a mum in your life through every step of the way. #FromMothertoDaughter is out now, and I really hope it helps you too.

Road trips in her family car can always be a bit hectic though, as Katie explains she's often been caught out by her daughter needing the loo!

Katie laughed: "We've actually had to pull over! Then there's me, holding her knickers around her ankles!" 

Don't worry, we've all been there Katie!
