The gorgeous actress gave birth to a baby boy on June 20 with her partner Greg Lake by her side.
And now, the 33-year-old brunette beauty has opened up about how she’s managed to get her post-baby body looking so good – and reveals just how much she loves motherhood.
“It is totally amazing, I am loving every second,” Jennifer Metcalfe told the Daily Star Online. “At the beginning it was quite hard, with sleep depravation and needing to be fed in the night, but little man is sleeping through now for a couple of weeks.
“I am just so focused on him, any body worries I may have had have gone, I’m not trying to do anything, I’m just letting my body do what it wants to do, if I put on weight fine, if I lose it whatever.”
She also said she uses Lighter Life Fast, something she says she did for two years before her pregnancy.
“I’m just slowly getting back into it with no pressure, but it was so convenient and it gives your body all of the nutrients it needs,” she added.

“But the last thing you’re thinking about with a new baby is bingo wings or a roll over your pants, I couldn’t care less, as long as I’m not severely over or underweight and I’m taking the right steps with eating the right things, that is good enough for me.”
The Hollyoaks actress and her Geordie Shore star boyfriend Greg Lake introduced their son to OK! magazine weeks ago, opening up about the birth details of their new arrival.
After Jennifer gave birth to her first child, the nurses informed her that her son, whom she has named Daye Colmic Lake, had a knot in his umbilical cord.
The fact that their baby had survived the pregnancy despite the knot, led the nurses to dub him “a miracle”, as the situation can often sadly result in a stillbirth.
“They said, ‘It’s a miracle’. It’s a miracle when anyone has a baby so we thought they would say that, but the midwife lifted him up and showed us that the cord had a knot in it,” Greg explained to OK! magazine.
The reality star continued: “Apparently they occur once in every hundred babies and what usually happens is a stillbirth. It was a tight knot but it must have been enough to get the oxygen and food through.
“If he had tightened it, he wouldn’t have got any oxygen. We were so lucky.”
