Ferne McCann didn't think she'd be able to bond with her baby.

The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star was left devastated when her now-ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins was arrested for throwing acid on revellers inside a nightclub in London just hours after she found out she was pregnant with his child earlier this year.

And considering the stress she went through while she was carrying her now-one-month-old daughter Sunday, she was concerned she wouldn't have a connection with her but she was blown away by the love she had for the tot when she finally met her.

Speaking on 'This Morning' on Monday (04.12.17), she said: "I felt like, imagine if my baby arrives and I don't feel that connection, because everyone speaks about this unconditional gush of love. Imagine if I didn't have that. I think it's like a natural concern, I don't know, maybe it's just me. But as soon as she arrived, and every minute that I spend with her, the love just grows so much. And I think for me, this year it wasn't part of the plan to have a baby, but you can't plan life. It just happened. I wasn't the most maternal person, but now I feel so maternal. And I'm just so in love with her."

And, although the pregnancy was full of ups and downs, the 27-year-old beauty's little one is actually a really "calm baby" and, that in turn, has made her chill out a bit more.

She explained: "She's really calm and she makes me really calm. She's made me so serene. Who would have thought it?"

Ferne has since moved back in with her mother so that she can help with the baby as Arthur - who she began dating at the beginning of the year - has been found guilty of the acid attack and has been told by the judge that he will spend a long time behind bars.
