Earlier this week, Katie inspired her 629,000 followers with a strikingly honest message about her post-baby body – which urged fellow mothers not to feel pressured to lose weight straight after birth.

Having confused fans with a throwback snap of her slender figure, the star proceeded to proudly share a second photo of her post-baby frame, and revealed has no plans to diet until she has stopped breastfeeding.

Addressing the throwback snap, which saw her pose in a slinky floral dress, she said: 'Lots of you commented on what you thought was my post baby body and asked how have I've lost so much weight.

'I wanted to let you know well I haven’t and it was an old picture! This is me today, healthy, tired but very happy!! I’m not dieting at the moment as I am breast feeding.

'We are faced with so many images each day on Instagram some good, some bad, and I want my page to be a profile that is enjoyed by lots of different people from all walks of life in a positive way.'

She then assured fans she has no plans to diet for a while, as she is more than confident and happy with her current figure – having only given birth a month ago.

She added: 'So this is me and has been since I gave birth and probably will be for while- elasticated PJ bottoms in the daytime- keeping Belle happy by wearing her favourite Aladdin ones- brill Xmas present from my friend Victoria.'

She welcomed Penelope Diane with her husband Richard Sutton in December – three years after the pair had their first child, Belle.

Speaking to OK! after the birth, the star confessed Richard had been pining for a son, but said they feel more than happy with their two daughters

She added: 'I feel completely fulfilled having our two girls and think they're enough. If anything did change, I think we would adopt. It's something Richie and I have talked about a lot and he's always been open to that.'

While life with a newborn can be difficult, the TV personality admitted she has felt at ease so far, as Penelope is a very peaceful baby.

She continued: 'She's an angel and so chilled out we sometimes forget she's there.'
