Laura at work 5 weeks after birth

TV presenter Laura Hamilton says she is "lucky" to be able to go back to work so soon after the birth of her daughter.

The star, who hosts property show A Place In The Sun, gave birth to daughter Tahlia on May 8 after going into labour a week before her planned Caesarean.

She told Hello! Magazine she had to call her colleagues to tell them: "I won't be in today because I had a baby this morning."

Hamilton, who already has a son called Rocco with husband Alex Goward, said: "This time I was pregnant at almost exactly the same time as the Duchess of Cambridge, although they have a 21-month gap between their children and we have only 18 months.

"She looked so amazing when she came out of hospital. I wish I'd looked like that.

"After a traumatic birth, there was no way I could leave hospital hours later looking so immaculate."

The presenter, who took five weeks off after the birth of her first child, is already back at work filming A Place in the Sun.

She said: "I find it very difficult to switch off. That doesn't mean my family isn't everything to me - I'm very lucky that I can take them with me - I just want to enjoy it for as long as it lasts."
