The star, who hosts property show A Place In The Sun, gave birth to daughter Tahlia on May 8 after going into labour a week before her planned Caesarean.

She told Hello! Magazine she had to call her colleagues to tell them: "I won't be in today because I had a baby this morning."

Hamilton, who already has a son called Rocco with husband Alex Goward, said: "This time I was pregnant at almost exactly the same time as the Duchess of Cambridge, although they have a 21-month gap between their children and we have only 18 months.

"She looked so amazing when she came out of hospital. I wish I'd looked like that.

"After a traumatic birth, there was no way I could leave hospital hours later looking so immaculate."

The presenter, who took five weeks off after the birth of her first child, is already back at work filming A Place in the Sun.

She said: "I find it very difficult to switch off. That doesn't mean my family isn't everything to me - I'm very lucky that I can take them with me - I just want to enjoy it for as long as it lasts."
