New Mum Katie Piper Treats Herself To Well-Deserved Manicure – and Shows Rare Photo Of Baby Belle!

We all know how tough it is to retain some semblance of normality when you’re in the throes of new motherhood, but Katie Piper has managed to squeeze in a quick mani-pedi while looking after baby daughter Belle.

The TV presenter and author tweeted a snap of her pampering session – and included six-week-old Belle’s tiny foot in the picture.

‘Our treat time at home from @VixTanandBeauty thank u 4 my beautiful pedi & nails!Guess who wanted to be in the pic!’ she captioned the image.

The 30-year-old model gave birth to little Belle Elizabeth on March 14th and has been busy throwing herself into being a mum ever since.


Last week she posted a picture of a sing-along book and explained that every time she tries to use it with her daughter, Belle bursts into tears.

‘Singing to my daughter using this book and CD but she cries every time I sing! Think I will take the hint and leave it to the CD!!!!’

‘I thought I knew, after all that happened to me, what happiness meant, but having Belle has shown me what true fulfilment is’

Katie has also started on a fitness kick and has pledged to eat healthier in time for summer.

‘Back on the wagon! No more creme eggs, tonight it's soya yogurt and apple! #healthyeating #summer,’ she posted on Instagram.

Last month, in an interview with Hello! magazine, Katie spoke about how happy she is with Belle and her boyfriend James, a carpenter.

‘To have had my own life saved in hospital and then to be there giving life to this precious little person, I thought, “This is why, this is what it's all about,”' she said.

‘Then, to meet and fall in love with James, a man I knew I wanted to have a baby with and who makes me so happy, and now to have Belle – it's just amazing. Most of all I want her to be happy. I thought I knew, after all that happened to me, what happiness meant, but having Belle has shown me what true fulfilment is.’
