The 36-year-old star - who is married to Marcel Badiane - revealed over Easter that she had welcomed a little girl called Nova a week earlier but took to social media on Sunday (14.04.24) to explain that that while it was "touch and go" whether she would be able to perform so soon after giving birth , she decided to go for it despite her own anxiety.

She wrote on Instagram: "While I was still pregnant, I received a booking to perform at a gig. It was touch and go as to whether or not I would do it because it would be so soon after giving birth. But this weekend, three weeks after having Nova, I decided I was ready to get back on stage and see how I get on. I was anxious being without our baby girl for a bit and my body definitely doesn’t feel the same, but surprisingly the energy took over. It felt amazing to perform with these incredible ladies who gave me good, positive vibes on stage. I was able to get out there, move my body, sing and do what I love and then get back to the little person I love with all my heart.

The 'Sax' hitmaker - who shot to fame on 'The X Factor' and later competed in 'Strictly Come Dancing' - has interacted with her fans via social media and realised that she is "not alone" in her experiences.

She said: "I spoke to lots of you on my stories about Mum guilt and feeling anxious and it’s nice to know I’m not alone, we all experience it in some way, I’m told that it will get easier and a happy Mama means a happy bubba."
