Former Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton says she feels like she is "on happy pills" after the birth of her son Ernie.

The broadcaster is busy having French lessons to prepare for a move to France after her rugby player husband, Richie Myler, signed for Catalan Dragons.

She told Hello! Magazine she could not believe how much she was enjoying motherhood after Ernie was born on June 19.

She said: "I feel like I've been on happy pills ever since Ernie was born."

Skelton said the move to Perpignan in southern France in November was the family's next adventure. She said: "We're both taking French lessons. It's exciting, but also a bit weird to be moving to a different country."
