A few weeks after giving birth, Olivia quickly juggled her new life as a mum while she maintained her work commitments.

She took to Instagram on Tuesday (July 12) afternoon, where she posted a video of her breastfeeding her newborn son during a break from a shoot in London.

The video had the caption: “Back & I’m better. Back to work today on a fabulous shoot around London with an incredible brand & my baby AJ in tow."

She added: “I am so tired now, like I said on my stories I was so nervous but wanted to do this for me & to kick anxieties ass!

“I feel SO accomplished; doing what I love, being unapologetically me AND being Mum at the same time. Don’t lose yourself Mamas, you deserve to be YOU too.

“Couldn’t do it without my team @ab_bowen @charhilditch @annalingis.”

The former Love Island star also shared a selection of snaps and videos of her return to work on her Instagram story.

Olivia included a picture of her getting her make-up done, walking her son in a pram to the location while sneaking in “cuddle time” en route.

As she announced their adorable new bubba to the world, she shared a cute photo of newbie dad Alex cradling his boy while Olivia leaned on his shoulder.

“Abel Jacob Bowen, but you can call him AJ…. the day our lives changed for the better,” gushed the dad on Instagram.

It wasn’t long before the smitten pair were inundated with congratulatory messages from fans and a few Love Island stars.

Voiceover man Iain Stirling was one of the first to comment, as he told the couple: “Congratulations you guys!!!!!!”

Jack Fowler, Danny Williams and Sam Bird also sent their best wishes in the comment section.

Olivia and Alex, 30, have been in the public eye since appearing on Love Island together in 2016.
