Jen Maguire, who had her first baby almost three months ago, says her little girl Florence “fits right into my life”.

The Breakfast Republic host wed her long-term partner Lau Zamparelli last summer and said she doesn’t feel any different since their new arrival.

“It’s like I’ve been waiting for her for so long and she just fits into my life – it’s like she’s always meant to have been there,” Jennifer said.

“So I don’t feel mad different, I don’t feel like I’m a completely different person. She just fits into our lifestyle, so it’s nice that she’s just finally here and she’s great craic.”

Jen (31) is making her return to the airwaves next week and says she’s lucky she doesn’t work a nine-to-five job.

“I’m looking forward to going back, the place has descended into chaos since I’ve been gone,” she said.

“I haven’t been tuning in because I have a really good baby and she sleeps until about nine o’clock.

“It just seems to have gone by so quickly. I feel like I have to raise my child in 10 weeks, but I’m lucky in that I’ll be racing home after the show.

“I feel sorry for mums who have to go and work a full eight-hour day – I’m not sure that I could deal with that.”

Jen recently attended the VIP Style Awards and puts her trim figure down to breast feeding.

“I haven’t snapped back completely, but breastfeeding really helps, that’s all I can say – she’s sucking the life out of me basically,” she said.
