"He’s been the baby of the family for so long and he’s thoroughly enjoyed it. Turns out I had absolutely nothing to worry about!

"He’s taken the role of big brother in his stride and it actually hurts my heart (in a nice way)!"

I definitely worried about Leighton feeling pushed out when I got pregnant with Rex.

She added: "Today I had to go into town to finish a special project I am involved in for one of my favourite charities and a person very close to my heart.

"Leighton decided he wanted to come with and help me look after Rex because at the moment I can’t be apart from him.

"And oh my goodness baby boy (you’ll always be my baby, even when it gets really embarrassing) I couldn’t have had better help.
