And while having a night off parenting duties at the Inside Soap Awards, Jennifer Metcalfe opened up about motherhood to her baby son.
Speaking exclusively to OK! Online, the Mercedes McQueen actress said: “It’s really hard but it’s amazing.
“You buzz of yourself every day because you excel yourself because you’ve got to because this little person is so demanding.”
“But he’s absolutely amazing and I’m so in love.”
Revealing something that she’s learned about herself from becoming a mother, Jennifer said: “I’ve got more patience than I thought – you have to have patience.
“His life depends on you, so you just have got to be patient.”

The 35 year old continued: “Greg’s mum was sending us pictures because she’s got him tonight and we were just like ‘look at him!’
“We’re going to be those sad parents that show everyone pictures and they’re like ‘we don’t really care'”.
Jennifer used the Inside Soap Awards as a chance to showcase her impressive body after giving birth, in a long-sleeved black top, with a racy cut-out panel down the front, showing off her assets.
She paired this with figure-hugging, pinstripe black trousers, and shiny black shoes.
The soap star kept her long brunette locks loose around her shoulder, and completed her look with a patterned bag.
