Laura Anderson has shared an update after two weeks of being a mum.
While Bonnie is Laura’s first baby, Gary is already a father to four children with his ex-wife Natasha Gray.
Laura has been keeping her followers updated throughout pregnancy and motherhood so far, with her latest including a joke about the impact of breastfeeding.
Taking to Instagram, the reality star posed naked in a picture as she fed her little girl.
Laura sat in a cosy armchair in Bonnie’s nursery as the newborn rested on a pillow and under a blanket embroidered with her name.
The second photo she shared captured baby Bonnie looking absolutely adorable as she slept, wearing a babygrow with a teddy bear on the front.
Laura wrote in her caption: ‘We’ve survived 2weeks so far 🤗 The nips are currently hanging on for dear life 😂’
She added the hashtags #BoobieTime and #Zombie.
Responding in the comments, Laura’s fans were keen to heap praise on her and offer reassurance.
‘The first 3 weeks of breastfeeding are a killer. It’s like wearing in a new pair of shoes! But one day it doesn’t hurt as much and then it’s pain free after that xx’, wrote one fellow mum.
‘If your nips are too sore and it’s hurting when feeding, you might benefit contacting a lactation consultant! 🏼 well done! You’re doing amazing! It’s soooo hard but worth it x’, another wrote.
Others noted that Bonnie is ‘her dad’s double’.
‘Wow she looks so much like Gary !!’, another said.
Laura’s post comes after she revealed the traumatic ordeal she suffered during birth.
The influencer – who met Gary on Celebs Go Dating – suffered a haemorrhage and lost 1.6litres of blood during the labour she described as ‘horrendous’.
Chatting on Instagram last week, Laura began by explaining that it took ‘four sweeps’ to try and induce labour, before she got a painful balloon induction which left her unable to walk.
Eventually, Laura opted for the hormone induction, going into labour immediately.
But, her contractions lasted for 12 hours before she was finally four centimetres dilated and brought to the labour ward.
Laura said it was ‘mentally quite torturous’ to be in labour for so long with no pain relief.
Thankfully, things started moving quickly after that and Bonnie was soon with her.
However, in recovery, Laura suffered another setback.
‘Five hours later I had a haemorrhage,’ she revealed, having also suffered a painful second-degree tear and needing stitches.
Recalling the terrifying experience, she added: ‘I just stayed calm because I thought, “I’ve got everybody around me that needs to be here, doing everything they can”.’
‘So I am a bit better in emergencies like that than like smaller things, if I stub my toe it’s the end of the world,’ she joked.
Despite her ‘scary’ experience, Laura has insisted she would ‘do it again’ to have her daughter.
As for her relationship with Gary, neither party has explicitly stated where they’re at.
They did make reference to their turbulent romance in their baby announcement post, though.
Writing as Bonnie, their caption included: ‘Please don’t question My Mummy & Daddy on their relationship- This.. is all about me.’
