Sam Bailey On Life With A Newborn: ‘I’ve Got A Very Easy Baby’

The former X Factor winner has revealed that baby Miley’s easy nature has made it possible for her to return to work sooner than anticipated

If we didn’t love/admire/want to be Sam Bailey enough already, the singer’s revelation that her newborn daughter Miley is an ‘easy baby’ has made us even more envious of her.

‘I’ve got a very easy baby,’ says Sam to Parentdish. ‘If she wasn’t as easy as she is, I wouldn’t be here now. And I had her three weeks early, which meant I could go back to work three weeks earlier.’

It appears that Sam’s not the only one besotted with Miley. She reveals that her two older children, Brooke and Tommy, can’t get enough of their baby sister.

‘Brooke is like a mum and Tommy can’t walk past her without kissing her,’ says Sam. ‘The pair of them absolutely dote on her. I’ve got such good kids. I know everyone says that, but I genuinely do.’

As well as having a famous mum, Miley’s got famous godparents – Sam’s X Factor co-star Nicky and Sharon Osbourne, who Miley recently met. ‘I haven’t seen her since July, so it was really great to see her,’ says Sam.


But despite the showbiz world that Sam’s a part of, her day is just like anyone else’s. ‘I’m up in the morning, getting the kids ready for school, doing packed lunches and that,’ she says. ‘Then I’m off to London and Miley goes to a childminder. Craig [Sam’s husband] picks the kids up and I’ll be back later on.’
