    Millie Mackintosh has written a "love letter" to her body

    The 31-year-old star has taken to Instagram to discuss her insecurities about her body and to remind herself to "treat it with more respect and kindness"

    Millie - who gave birth to her first child, Sienna, in May - wrote on the photo-sharing platform: "A friend of mine has launched a series called “A Love Letter To My Body” on her blog @thisisfindingbalance to create a space where anyone can share the personal relationships they have with their bodies, in the hope that they will relate to someone else and help them feel less alone in their insecurities.

    "Over the years I’ve been my own worst critic and had a love/hate relationship with my body. My hope in writing this is that I can remind myself how lucky I am to have the body I live in and to treat it with more respect and kindness #alovelettertomybody [love heart emoji] (sic)"

    Earlier this year, meanwhile, Millie admitted it was "weird" to raise her baby amid the coronavirus lockdown.

    However, the TV star - who has Sienna with Hugo Taylor - thinks the lockdown actually helped her to bond with her baby girl.

    She explained: "It has been pretty weird but to be honest it’s been a more positive thing for us.

    "Obviously, it's been awful, it's affected everyone, but being heavily pregnant and being a new mum, you locked down anyway, you want to be at home, and you don’t want to be really seeing people. It's really made us focus on our time with the baby, bonding with her, figuring it out.

    "Just Hugo being here too has been amazing as he would have been back at work after two weeks and he's still at home now. To have that time together as a family I feel really lucky and to have him helping with the baby."
