Billie Faiers is a busy mum of two but it seems family life is getting even more tiring for the former TOWIE star.

With two year old Nelly and new addition Arthur, who she gave birth to in March, and a hectic career to juggle, it's no surprise she's feeling the pressure. But speaking to OK! Magazine, Billie confided that it's daughter Nelly's latest bedtime habit which ensures she and boyfriend Greg Shepherd not only lose sleep but end up sleeping apart.

She explained: 'Nelly keeps waking us up when she wants Greg to get in bed with her. We want a peaceful night and we don't want her waking Arthur up, so Greg gives in. It's a vicious circle because as long as he keeps getting in the bed with her, she's going to keep waking up and asking for him.'

She went on to say: 'It's so exhausting when we're both working and, for me, juggling work, housework, cooking and taking the kids out – it's really hard.'

We're sure there are countless parents out there who feel your pain Billie.

The Essex girl may be struggling when it comes to getting enough sleep but she's certainly not having any problems getting back to her pre-baby body. She seems to snap back in record time so what's her secret? Sadly it's not the answer we were hoping for.

Billie admitted: 'To be honest, I haven't been going to the gym or anything yet because I haven't had a second. I was quite lucky, my tummy just went down quite quickly.'

Well isn't that just great?
