Charlotte Hawkins has confessed she thinks she'll be conscious of losing her baby weight once she gives birth but will keep her priorities in order
Charlotte Hawkins is "conscious" about losing her baby weight.
The 39-year-old 'Good Morning Britain' presenter -who is currently six months pregnant with her first child - has admitted that she is already thinking about how she can shift the baby weight after she's given birth.
When asked how she has handled her weight gain, Charlotte explained: "I still take our dogs for walks and do pregnancy yoga. I'll be conscious of losing weight, but I won't rush - the main thing is you're healthy, energized and have enough nutrition to support a new life. That should be the focus, not whether you can fit into your skinny jeans.
"I just look forward to having lots of cuddles with this amazing being we've created."
The first-time mum also revealed that her fellow ITV presenter Ben Shephard failed to notice her growing bump despite her repeatedly raiding the work biscuit tin.
She said: "I wasn't actually sick, but I felt like I was going to be every day. I was having to go into work and pretend everything was okay and I just had to eat my way through it. I thought they must have suspected because I ate biscuits and pastries all morning. I said to Ben later, 'Didn't you wonder why I ate so many biscuits?' And he was like, 'I'm a boy. I thought you just ate a lot of biscuits.'"
Charlotte, who married her husband Mark Herbert, 41, in 2008, admitted that she "feels" for the Duchess of Cambridge who suffers from acute morning sickness.
Charlotte told HELLO! magazine: "It's not just in the morning, it's the whole time. It's just so debilitating and you do feel so vulnerable because it's such early days."
