In the candid snap, Belle's full head of thick dark hair can be seen and she is dressed in a pretty white babygro while burrowing into her mummy.

Although we think she looks gorgeous in the photograph, Katie tweeted: "Sleepy girls together! Excuse the roughness!"

On 14 March, Katie gave birth to Belle and told fans on Twitter that she and her partner were "overwhelmed" with happiness.

Although she has mainly kept her baby out of the limelight, Katie has given fans the odd sneak peek at Belle every now and again.

Last month, following an eye operation, Katie - who suffered severe burns in an acid attack in 2008 - was photographed cuddling Belle as she recovered from the surgery.

She has definitely taken to motherhood like a duck to water and this weekend tweeted: "Hearing her breathe on my chest and knowing I would give my last breath to ensure she breathes forever." Aww!
