Michelle Heaton has spoken out about her post baby body, saying that losing the extra pounds "isn't easy".

Liberty X star Michelle gave birth to her second child, a son called AJ, on 28 February and is unable to workout yet as she had a caesarean.

Michelle is, however, making sure she's eating a healthy diet and has offered encouragement to other new mums who are worried about their figures.

Taking to Twitter, the Big Reunion star said: "Any one else struggling to lose baby weight after c-section? I have good & bad weeks.

"It's hard not being able to work out yet, but as long as your diet is clean you should see results regardless. Hang in there girls! It's not easy! But we can do it if you want it."

Michelle added: "Regardless of what you may have seen/read, I still have a long way to go, 1 stone & 5 pounds to be precise!"

Letting her followers in on her secret to looking great, she also admitted: "Thank god for Spanx in the meantime lol #wecandoit xxxxxxx."
Fans were quick to respond to Michelle's message, with one saying: "Well said Michelle! You are setting a great example!"

Another told her: "It is definitely taking me longer on my second child, it seemed to just fall off last time! You are motivating though #real."

Later on in the evening, Michelle told her followers: "I'm loving all your responses girls.

"And yes, don't even get me started on the 'shelf' above my c-section scar! #learningtoexceptmynewshape."

Michelle is already mum to Faith, two, and made her first red carpet appearance since AJ's birth at the Tesco Mum Of The Year Awards on 23 March.
