Flourish in a floral Doen dress like Millie
Blooming: It comes after Millie revealed that she feels ‘proud’ of her body and accepts that it will never ‘quite be the same’ as she prepares to welcome her first child
Millie revealed that although it will be a relief to no longer share her body with her growing little one, she will be focusing on raising her child rather than getting back into shape in the gym.
Alongside the lengthy caption, Millie shared a sweet snap of her burgeoning baby bump, as she posed in a white lace bra and linen trousers.
Sharing her recent thoughts in the post, Millie penned: ‘With only a few weeks left in my pregnancy one of the things I’ve been thinking about is the term ‘bounce back’. It’s a phrase I hear a lot but not one I feel is healthy.
Millie went on to reveal several people have said to her ‘I bet you can’t want to get your body back’, however she admitted she accepts it will never be the same.

She continued: ‘I know I will want to feel healthy and fit again, but I’ll be in a new body, one that I’ll be extra proud of thanks to it working its magic to create my daughter.
The reality star went on to urge others to be kind, and said: ‘Sadly, I’ve seen women trolled on Instagram for sharing beautiful and honest pictures of their post-partum bodies and that has to stop.
‘We need to be kinder to each other and to ourselves. The female body is a miracle. Women procreate, we give life and we work well in tribes, there’s a lot to be said for the power of the pack, which is why it’s so important to not only find acceptance with yourself, but to rally the women next to you in the process.’
Millie concluded by revealing that that her primary focus will be on her little girl with the support of her loved ones.
She added: ‘Sure I’ll have my moments (of what will seem like a distant size 8 memory) but I will work hard to embrace a new found respect for my body.
‘It would be great to hear from any of you that have had the same thoughts and how you have managed not just your expectations but that of the outside world #33weekspregnant.’
