Sam Faiers has revealed her excitement has nominated for a Celebrity Mum of the Year Award just six weeks after giving birth!

The former TOWIE star welcomed her first child, son Paul Tony, on 29 December, but is already being recognised for her mothering achievements in the IceLolly Celebrity Mum of the Year 2016 competition.

Sam, 24, tweeted: "So excited to have been nominated for the Ice Lolly #CelebMumOfTheYear awards! Please vote for me to win. Ps I know I have only been a mum for 6 weeks. Thank you for nominating me @icelollyholiday."

Some fans were quick to tell Sam that women become a mother the day they find out they are pregnant.

Sam faces competition from her very own big sister Billie Faiers, who is mum to daughter Nelly, one. Billie won the prize last year so she'll be looking to make it a second year in the row.

"It's been a really busy past couple of years with TOWIE, my other projects such as Jam Kidswear and my signature range products, and of course the birth of my beautiful daughter Nelly last summer," said Billie last year. "It's very much been a juggling act, with me trying to find the right balance between my career and family life, something I know all the real mums out there face and deserve huge credit for too - but I wouldn't change anything for the world!"

Also up for the prize are celebrities including Peter Andre's wife Emily MacDonagh, Tom Fletcher's wife Giovanna, Katie Price, Danielle Lloyd and Adele.
