The mum for the first time took to Mail On Sunday’s YOU magazine in December, where she opened up about motherhood, saying: ‘I don’t think I’ve ever felt this before.
“ Regardless of everything that happened in my career, I have always felt insecure, worried about what people thought of me. And now I feel happy. It is a novelty.
“I never knew I would be that person – a mom. Things seemed so complicated, and now everything is so simple. I love Billy so much. I hold him and he looks at me and I know he loves me back and he needs me.
“I’ve been looking for this all my life. I looked in the wrong places – in nightclubs, going out to drink, pushing myself to work. Now in this little baby I have found that I am at peace with everything.
