Fearne Cotton: ‘When I gave birth, I felt the most beautiful I’ve ever looked’

BBC Radio 1 and Celebrity Juice presenter Fearne Cotton says she would ‘do anything' to be pregnant again


Fearne Cotton says the day after she gave birth, she felt the ‘most beautiful’ she’s ever looked.


And, the BBC Radio 1 presenter says, she felt pretty amazing at 9 months pregnant, too.

“When I was pregnant and huge, I felt amazing,” she’s told Red magazine. “And the day after I gave birth, I remember looking in the mirror. I probably looked horrendous: greasy hair that I hadn’t washed for days; this weird, wobbly belly with no baby in it; chapped lips; flushed skin… but I felt like I looked the most beautiful I had ever looked.

“I thought, ‘This is a moment where I feel empowered, where I feel f**king brilliant.’ If I’d been papped right then, I would have been proud.”

In fact, Fearne, mum to 18-month-old Rex, says she enjoyed pregnancy so much, “I would do anything to have that experience of being pregnant again”.

We hope her fiancé Jessie Wood is aware of how broody Fearne is!

The couple already have their hands full with baby Rex and Jessie’s children Arthur, 12, and Lola, 7, from a previous relationship.

“Our house is mad at the weekends,” the 32-year-old says. 

“We’ll meet at the washing machine: Jesse will be washing Arthur’s cricket outfit while I’m putting Rex’s babygro in. We’ll be like, ‘You OK? Right. Good. See you in the bedroom before we pass out.’ 

“But I can’t imagine my life without it. I don’t know what I was doing before they came along. Killing some brain cells at Space in Ibiza, I guess…”

Fearne went back to work when Rex was 10 months old and says she’s no stranger to working-mum guilt.

“I’ll be interviewing Coldplay, feeling bad for being there,” she said.

“There’s this little tap on the shoulder; your subconscious saying, ‘Don’t enjoy this too much, you should be at home.'”

Lots of us can all relate to that one, Fearne!
