Danielle Jonas showed off a rather impressive six pack last week while on holiday with baby daughter Alena Rose and, I must admit, I have a girl crush!

Danielle, wife of Jonas Brother Kevin, was sporting a teeny monochrome bikini as she clutched her daughter on her hip during the family vay-cay, making it hard to believe she gave birth 18 months ago.

Let's face it, most of us (me), didn't look like that before childbirth, so my chances of looking like that afterwards are pretty slim...excuse the pun.

Like the Jonas', my hubby and I have booked a family holiday this week (our first) and are off to Majorca. But unlike Danielle, I shall be showing off my post-baby body in a pair of very high-waisted 50s-style bikini bottoms. It's all about flattening the flab and hiding the stretch marks.

As a result of booking our trip, I seem to have gone a bit bonkers buying 'holiday essentials'. I do have a track record for going wild with baby clothes shopping, and a sunshine break has given me a new excuse.

Much to my hubby's bemusement/horror, I've been ordering so much stuff for our daughter Molly that her Pink Lining Little Lady suitcase may actually make the plane tilt to one side.

...and this. Boo!

There's the baby sunnies to shield her precious peepers from the Majorcan rays, the little wetsuit waistcoat thingy to keep her from turning blue in the pool, a mini spade and rake for the beach and a baby rubber ring. Things have got so bad that I received an email from Amazon telling me my item had been dispatched - and I couldn't even remember what the item was #truestory.

Sadly, the husband has now put his foot down, meaning I haven't been able to buy the 'mum and me' pool inflatable and this A-mazing Wonderwoman baby swimsuit, complete with yellow turban swimming cap, from Simply Be.

And I'm yet to find out where I can buy a stomach like Danielle's.

Answers on a postcard, please!

Meanwhile, last week, I asked if you're a fan of Katie Price, following her tell-all TV interview on Channel 5. Good news for her, as 64 per cent of you have admitted you can't get enough of the Pricey! An unsure 20 per cent said they were on the fence while 16 per cent were quick to say KP is not their cup of tea.

This week, I want to know if you felt comfortable wearing a bikini after having a baby. Tell us below!
