Billie Shepherdwelcomed her third child back in December – a daughter called Margot.
The star, who also shares children Nelly, eight, and four year old Arthur with husband Greg Shepherd, is juggling life as a mum of three, but has been getting tips from her sister Sam Faiers, who gave birth to her third child last May.
“We talk about it all the time,” Billie, 33, said. “She says you’ve got to take each day as it comes – and it does get easier.”
Billie has been open about the challenges of becoming a family of five since the arrival of their daughter.
“As much as it’s been amazing, we’ve had lots of moments as well – tears, tantrums and it is a big thing adjusting any new baby into a family,” Billie explained.
“With Arthur being the youngest, we always kind of expected it a little bit. He’s being a bit smothering and it’s all for my attention. I’ll be pottering around and he’ll be over her and breathing on her and looking at me out of the corner of his eye.
"It doesn’t matter if it’s positive or negative attention – as long as he’s got my attention. He’s doing things to wind me up."
She continued: “You just get so bored of the sound of your own voice. You’re emotional anyway when you have a baby and it’s a massive change. You’re exhausted from the birth, so it was a lot. It’s so draining.
"I can laugh a little bit about it now, but it’s still going on. You just feel like you’re repeating yourself constantly.”
But Nelly and Arthur have been getting involved and helping their parents, by holding their baby sister when they get home from school. “Arthur, bless him, he’s really good at helping out,” she said.
“Whereas Nelly can be a bit like, ‘Oh, am I a slave now?’ But then Nelly’s really good with Margot and can hold her and walk about with her now.”
