Addressing her 1.7 million Instagram followers, she wrote: “A lot of people are asking me about my diet after Roman, but the answer is I’m not on one.

“I eat three balanced meals a day, lots of water when I breast feed and a few snacks e.g. oat cookies, hummus, rice cakes, half an avocado.”

Motherhood struggles

Life as a new mum hasn’t been completely plain-sailing for the reality star, though.

Lucy – who is currently enjoying a family holiday with Ryan and their son – recently revealed she’s struggling to breastfeed Roman after hours of gruelling night feeds.

“Horrendous food poisoning, extremely HOT especially for a baby, milk supply has dropped & me & Roman are both stressed, frustrated & tired.”

Lucy continued: “I’m not ready to stop breastfeeding & refuse to quit on a bad day so this is a step towards getting my supply up.”
