There's nothing quite like the love a mum feels for her new baby, as Katie Piper has recently discovered.
The TV personality became a mum for the first time on March 14 and she's finally shared the first pics of her beautiful baby.
Katie appears in the latest edition of Hello! magazine, in a set of gorgeous pictures showing off her new daughter in their home.
Her little girl already has a head full of jet black hair and looked angelic as her smiling mum held her for the camera.
The 30-year-old presenter was open about her excitement at becoming a mum throughout her pregnancy and she can’t helping gushing about the experience of giving birth, saying that motherhood has given her "true fulfillment".
Like many new mums, she explained that the love she feels for her baby outweighs any other emotion: "People used to say to me, 'It's a love like no other,' and I understand that now. She's so precious and I just feel so incredibly blessed to have her. She's our world."
The former model - who was the victim of an acid attack in 2008 that tragically disfigured her face - is now in a relationship with her carpenter boyfriend James, and feels over the moon at becoming a mum.
Speaking of her worries at not being able to conceive, she told Hello!: "I already felt grateful that, after the attack, I'd managed to restore a life, have a job, friends, a social life, and I thought, 'You can't expect to have everything, this is enough', but happily, Katie fell pregnant last year and their little family of three is now complete! Well, for now, as we’ve got our fingers crossed they may add to their brood in the not-too-distant future.
