Earlier this year, Loose Women regular Stacey Solomon gave birth to her third son Rex, her first with boyfriend Joe Swash.
And while she shares adorable snaps with Rex on social media, Stacey has spoken of the difficulties she faced in the first few days after giving birth.
She confessed she relied on Nadia Sawalha, who was on holiday in Spain at the time, after feeling down and worrying about the way she was reacting to different situations involving Rex.
But Nadia, who was at the other end of the phone at the time, reassured her that everything was normal and those bad feelings would pass.

Stacey and Nadia recalled the early days on the latest episode of Stacey's podcast, Here We Go Again.
While much of the episode details Stacey's struggles with things such as breast feeding, Nadia ended it by heaping compliments on her friend and co-star.
She told her: "You're so smart, so sassy, so beautiful, funny, clever and a damn fine mother."
Loving it, Stacey replied: "I feel like we should just extend this episode, just full of compliments."

Soon the conversation takes a different turn, as Nadia decides to talk about their boobs.
She laughs: "We've both got these huge t*ts as well, that weren't much good to us!"
Stacey joins in, saying: "We've got massive nipples – pepperami nipples.
"They literally look like text book nipples that are gonna be full of an abundance of milk. It's a lie!"
During the episode, Stacey thanked Nadia for all of the support she'd given her.
She said: "I genuinely, over the weeks and months of texting you after giving birth, felt like an absolute failure mum who was going insane, and you had the ability to make me feel that I was none of those things and that is such a gift. You are hilarious, but you also know how to be serious but make it light. Like that's such a bloody gift Nadia, you've got no idea."

Nadia replied: "Well, let me tell you, your boys are quite extraordinary. You are a phenomenal mother, right? So whenever – when I say any of this stuff to you, and I'm saying, y'know, don't beat yourself up, that's because I see.
"I've seen your older boys and I see Rex, you are a phenomenal mother and a good mother is a mother in a way that is constantly questioning their own mothering."
