Rebecca Ferguson has revealed the pressure she's received to lose her post-baby weight since giving birth to her third child Arabella four months ago.

The 28-year-old X Factor star said she's come under pressure to be like the ping-back celebrities who instantly slim down after having a baby, but she's refused to comply because she's 'happy in my own skin'.

Rebecca gave birth to Arabella on October 25 and is also mum to Lillie May, nine, and Karl, seven, from a previous relationship.

In an interview with the Mirror, the singer said she isn't worried about losing the baby weight instantly.

Rebecca said: "I'm really happy in my own skin, it's other people who aren't happy.

"People say 'Oh, Becky don't you want to lose a few pounds', and I'm like 'I'm really content, I'm the happiest I've ever been'.

"It's funny how the world [perceives] how you should be after pregnancy now, they think you should snap back into shape especially if you're in the public eye.

"I say it's OK to enjoy your baby."

Rebecca, who is set to release her new Billie Holiday-inspired album, has admitted that she's not really into going out at the moment. Instead she likes to focus on her family.

She said: "Having a baby has changed me as a person as I'm not interested in going out with the girls.

"I think all new mothers are like that really, it goes on the back seat. I think Arabella has completed me she made me grow up, she made me value myself."
