She gave birth to her second daughter Mia, with husband Dan Osborne just four months ago.
And EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa, 26, told MailOnline she was determined not to lose herself this time around, as she did when she gave to first daughter Ella, three.
It’s been a trying time for Jacqueline and her husband Dan who she split from in May while still pregnant with Mia.
Wow: Jacqueline Jossa claims reuniting with Dan Osborne has left her feeling her sexiest yet as she poses in lingerie for Boux Avenue, four months after giving birth to her second child
Ups and downs: Jacqueline and her husband Dan Osborne split in May when she was pregnant with their second child together, but they reunited in September
The couple married in 2017 but got back together following his stint on Celebrity Big Brother in September.
Now she’s in a good place, Jacqueline can acknowledge the dark times, saying: ‘Last time I gave birth, I was not in the right frame of mind and not caring about what I did or how I looked.’
The actress has been working out this time around and eating healthily and admitted: ‘I thought I would never wear a crop top again.
‘But it’s all in your head. It’s all mental and something you have to be in control of yourself. I do still have bad days though.
Candid: Jacqueline admits she ‘lost herself amid body confidence battles ahead of split’ but is feeling better than ever and has even taken some of the lingerie from the shoot home to Dan
‘I had decided with this last pregnancy that I can’t get to the size I was with the last pregnancy. I was determined.’
Jacqueline said that four months after each time she has given birth, her body has seriously been through the mill.
She said: ‘You have a lull after four months. My hair has been falling out. It happens. I know I just have to push through it.
‘To be honest, it really messed me up last time it happened, but I’m determined to not let it bother me this time.’
She said: ‘I do finally feel my sexiest yet. Dan and I are getting on really well since he came out of Big Brother’
Now Jacqueline and Dan have rekindled their romance and the stunner said she is feeling fantastic.
She said: ‘I do finally feel my sexiest yet. Dan and I are getting on really well since he came out of Big Brother.
‘I would never have done that show. I don’t know how Dan did it, being trapped in a room with all those people for 30 days. I’m a homely person. I would have walked.
‘I knew all Dan would do is cry and be everyone’s best mate. He is a crier, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing.’
While talking about reality shows, Jacqueline touched upon the ‘Strictly curse’ after married Katya Jones and Seann Walsh were pictured kissing.
She said: ‘I haven’t watched Strictly but I did see some naughty pics,’ (referring to the kissing pictures.)
‘You can’t blame the show for breaking up relationships. I know I would be fine if was to compete on Strictly. I wouldn’t cheat. I don’t get it.’
Now feeling her sexiest yet, Jacqueline has modelled loungewear and lingerie alongside Sam Faiers for a new Boux Avenue campaign.
She said: ‘Two years ago, I would never have done something like this. Now I feel great. It’s not like I’m baring all. It’s mostly loungewear and cute PJs.
‘I have brought all of the underwear home though. I actually bought it before they sent it to me as I couldn’t wait.’
Adding: ‘Two years ago, I would never have done something like this. Now I feel great. It’s not like I’m baring all. It’s mostly loungewear and cute PJs’
