KATE Lawler has revealed that she doesn’t SHOWER or brush her teeth because she’s too scared to leave baby Noa alone – even when she’s napping.
The 41-year-old star became a first-time mum in February as she welcomed her daughter with fiance Martin, who she affectionately calls Boj, and The Handsome.
And she opened up about how she is adapting to parenthood on Instagram yesterday as she asked followers for advice.
She said: “I managed to shower today and brush my teeth, get in! At 4pm… But better late than never.
“I only did that because The Handsome was here and he was able to mind Noa – if you’re a mum and your partner has gone back to work, let’s say pre-Covid times, what do you do about showering and brushing your teeth?
“Because Noa is 12 weeks old and I’m still struggling to do it if The Handsome is at work. I’m just blown away with how single parents cope, and how parents cope when their partner goes back to work full time.She admitted she refuses to leave baby Noa alone – even when napping[/caption] The first-time parents welcomed their daughter in February[/caption]
“I’m so lucky Boj is his own boss and he can stay at home if he wants to.”
Kate added: “If he’s at work I usually don’t bother, but thankfully he’s here quite a lot at the minute.”
The radio presenter’s followers were quick to offer her advice – with many suggesting she put Noa in a bouncer or on a playmat in the bathroom while showering.Kate has documented how they have adapted to parenthood[/caption] She regularly takes to social media to ask for advice[/caption]
Others asked why Kate didn’t nip to the shower when the little one was sleeping – which is when the star confessed she won’t leave her daughter alone for a second.
She wrote: “I know you might think I’m being dramatic but I couldn’t leave Noa in another room while I showered, even if she was asleep.

Posting a poll, Kate then asked her 352k followers: “Would you shower and leave your baby asleep in another room?”, with 77% saying yes.
The former Big Brother champ has won praise from fans for her candid documenting of motherhood, but she has also been targeted by cruel mummy-shamers over the past 12 weeks.
Earlier this month, breastfeeding Kate defended treating herself to a glass of wine after expressing for Noa.
She appeared to pre-empt backlash while posing with her booze, writing: “Pumped. Wine time. Just a teeny one before anyone tells me I’m about to turn Noa into a p*** head.”
