She told fans: "I can honestly say The Healthy Happy Mum Plan has changed my life since having Pea – on the left I was a few months post-partum and feeling sore & sleep deprived with a few extra wobbly bits."

I had picked up some bad habits whilst being pregnant and I wanted to make healthier, happier changes to my life.

Katie continued: "I truly believe there's no right or wrong way that you should look after having children, but I had picked up some bad habits whilst being pregnant and I wanted to make healthier, happier changes to my life.

"Not only have I now lost 2 stone but I've seen some huge changes in my body whilst on the plan, I feel more confident and am leading a much more balanced lifestyle, which shows both inside and out."

Fans were quick to praise Katie's achievement and also point out she will always be "beautiful" and "inspirational" regardless of appearance.

Katie and TerriAnn have said they created The Healthy Happy Mum Plan as a platform to share their own experiences, tips and tricks.

The book is described as a "light-hearted mum manual" to help mothers feel good and provide anecdotes on all aspects of motherhood from breastfeeding to sleep deprivation and embracing the body's changes.

The manual is aimed at mums of all ages with children of all ages and also includes relaxation techniques and at-home workout ideas.

There are food diaries and dietitian-approved recipes designed for the whole family to enjoy (and all tested and approved by Katie!)

The book advocates a 16:8 eating rule, which allows 1,500 calories a day to be consumed within an eight-hour window and no restrictions on food groups.

There is also one Treat Day per week allowing any treat up to 500 calories.

While Katie has lost two stone so far, TerriAnn - who created The TerriAnn 123 Plan - has shed seven stone over the course of her healthy journey.

Entrepreneur and television presenter Katie said: "TerriAnn and and I are thrilled to be sharing The Healthy Happy Mum Plan with all mums to provide a one-stop shop for all things wellbeing, fitness and food for you and your family.

"Since the birth of my second daughter, Pea, I have found TerriAnn's practical tips and advice extremely useful in maintaining a healthy, happy and balanced lifestyle, and likewise I was able to share some of my own 'hacks' with her.
