Nadia Essex vows to get healthy after giving birth to her first son Ezekiel

Nadia Essex has vowed to get healthy after welcoming her first child.

The 38 year old recently took to social media to upload photos of herself showing off her post-pregnancy body, saying she wants to get back on track with her fitness.

Posing in a pink bra top and a black pair of knickers, she wrote to her 219,000 Instagram followers: "I'm not doing this because I hate my body, I'm doing it because I love it.

"I'm in awe of what it did, grew my baby and kept us safe. I have been filling it with junk and it's time to get a grip, so I'm doing the @dotheunthinkableuk plan and Uber excited."

"But since giving birth I have been living off ready meals, junk food and sugar to get me through the lockdown.

"I've no help with the baby or night feeds, it's all me 24 hours a day for weeks on end so I've been grabbing what I can when I can!

"I love my body and want to do it for myself – it's time to get healthy," she continued.
