Frankie Bridge Admits She Doesn't Feel Like A Mum

Section: Celebrity Mums

The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge has recently become a mum for the first time to baby Parker, her first child with husband Wayne Bridge – but it’s still a role she’s getting used to

The 25-year-old Strictly Come Dancing contestant admitted it was still an overwhelming feeling to be called ‘mummy’, in a recent interview.
Frankie reveals: ‘Until Parker calls me “Mummy” I don’t think I feel like one. It’s weird enough when they introduce me as 'Frankie Bridge' on Strictly!’


Made even better by this little man ❤️

Clearly the star is loving being a wife and mother and admits that it is the happiest she has ever been, after reported battles with anxiety and depression.

‘I actually think motherhood and marriage happened to me because I’m happy now.


‘For a long time, my head wasn’t in the right place to be someone’s wife or mum. But I managed to get through that,’ she said.

‘Wayne is such a chilled out person and that’s really influenced me. I’m only 25, we’re newly-weds and I have a gorgeous baby boy. I am really happy,’ she added.
The singer confesses that while the amount of love she has for her son is a 'beautiful thing', it's also 'overwhelming'.

‘When they put Parker on me after he was born, skin to skin, he just lay there for a couple of hours and I couldn’t believe he was mine,' says Frankie. 'I could feel my love growing for him by the hour… Every noise, movement, even hiccup made me love him more.’
