New mum Amy was beaming with little Polly...
New mum Amy Childs brought her gorgeous little newborn Polly onto yesterday’s This Morning.
The ex-TOWIE star – who gave birth last month – talked to presenters Holly Willoughby and Rylan Clark-Neal about motherhood.
She said: ‘I just can’t believe how much I love [Polly], it really is unconditional love. I can’t believe what I used to do before I had her.
‘People said I was going to be so knackered, saying: “Day three you’re going to have baby blues,” but I haven’t had any of that.’
However, she did confess: ‘Yeah, I’m a little bit tired.’
All very sweet, right? But the interview got a tad more interesting when Amy revealed she’d turned her placenta into capsules, which she credited for making her feeling so good in the early stages of motherhood.
She said: ‘It was the capsules, I took them three times every day, Polly’s nearly four weeks old and I’ve taken them every day and I feel amazing.’
She went on to discuss how she’s also had her placenta transformed into a face cream, continuing: ‘Everyone that comes into the house has got to have a bit of me and Polly’s placenta balm on their face when they come in.
‘Mum’s in the dressing room today, she’s had a bit of balm on. Rylan, everyone has the balm on when they walk in!’
Mum-of-three Holly Willoughby appeared pretty sceptical, saying: ‘If it was my own placenta I guess I would have no issue with it and I don’t have an issue with you doing it at all… but putting yours on, I think I would be a bit…’

This didn’t stop the Essex star from continuing to encourage the two presenters: ‘I’ve got some there Holly if you want some? Rylan, if you want to try it?’
Unsurprisingly, neither Holly nor Rylan accepted the offer, with Rylan delicately responding: ‘I’ll look at it from afar for now…’
LOLz. Big congratulations, Amy!
