The former Made In Chelsea star and her husband, Hugo Taylor, is getting ready to welcome her second child – who will be a little sister for her daughter, Sienna
Expectant mum Millie Mackintosh, 32, who lives with husband Hugo Taylor and their one-year-old daughter Sienna, is looking forward to welcoming a second daughter later this year.
On top of being a wife, mother and businesswoman, Millie is also helping support the Give Up Clothes For Good campaign by TK Maxx which is raising money to support children who are fighting cancer – and also aims to raise awareness about sustainability in the world of fashion.
Here Millie opens up about motherhood, her changing views on fashion, and answers if we will see her in a new reality show of her own soon…
How are you finding this pregnancy, Millie?
In some ways it’s easier as I know what to expect and my symptoms have been similar to when I was pregnant with Sienna. I feel more like myself this time, although with Sienna now running around, I have to be more mobile, which isn’t always the best for my pelvic pain!
Is Sienna looking forward to having a baby sister?
She’s a little too young to understand but she knows something’s growing in my tummy. She likes to rest her head on me and stroke my bump, which is really cute.
What have you’ve learnt since becoming a mum?
The juggle is real. It’s hard to balance being a mum, a wife, working, socialising and making time for exercise and self-care. I’ve realised it’s not possible to do it all, and that’s OK. If you want to keep your sanity, ask for help.
You’re supporting the Give Up Clothes For Good campaign with TK Maxx. Has it changed the way you shop?
I’m much more aware of how I shop now and I do have that internal dialogue and think, “How much will I wear this item?” before I buy. I personally feel that most people, when they can, are being more present with their choices.
We don’t always have to buy something in order to wear something new. I really love all the rental and pre-loved companies and brands that are around now.
Would you consider letting the cameras into your home and making a reality show about life as a mum?
If life has taught me anything over the past few years, it’s that anything is possible. I’m a firm believer in “never say never”.
