Model Rosie Connolly has admitted she’ll never be able to pose for bikini shoots – because she doesn’t want to embarrass her son Harry.

The beauty blogger, who is signed to Andrea Roche, said that although she admires girls who feel comfortable baring all for the camera, she feels her role as a mum has put those days well behind her.

“When you become a mother, all those things you may have done when you were younger go out the window,” she said.

“I would never embarrass my son like that. I think people who do it are incredible to have that confidence.

“I’m marketing myself as a young mum, so I don’t really want to go down that road, but hats off to the girls who do it – they look incredible.

“I have a baby and I’m engaged, so I’m past that now.”

The blonde is set to tie the knot with engineer fiancé Paul Quinn.

While the couple’s son is only 17-months-old, Rosie has already considered the prospect of having more children, but said she will be giving preference to her career for the time being.

“Harry has been a dream, I could not have asked for better,” she said.

“He has made motherhood look easy.

“I think if we ever had another one that wasn’t as well behaved, we would struggle.

“I would love to have another baby, but I think I’ll wait until Harry is in school and give myself some time to focus on my career for the moment.”

Rosie said Paul was very supportive of her decision to leave her old personal shopper job behind for the world of modelling and blogging.

“We both understand each other, which is good. When I decided to go full-time I was so anxious about whether it would work,” she said.

“We’ve got a baby so there’s bills to pay and I’m walking out of a steady job as a personal shopper, but Paul’s a risk taker so he’s very encouraging.”
