Jacqueline Jossa has shared a beautiful and honest photo alongside her two daughters on Instagram, just 11 days after giving birth.

The EastEnders actress gushed about motherhood in the caption, claiming that while it may be "hard work" being mum to two daughters, it has been "so far, so good".

Alongside the snap which sees Jacqueline cosying up to her girls, she admitted, "Yes I am tired, yes it is hard work," but quickly added that her daughters were being particularly well behaved.

"I’m actually feeling quite lucky with these 2 girls there both (fingers crossed) being angels, I know it’s only been 11 days but so far so good," she wrote.

"I know I look tired, I’m aware it’s not the best picture of me, but it’s a picture of me and my girls and I bloody love it. I hope everyone has a great weekend we have lots of fun planned!"

The actress gave birth to her second daughter Mia with Dan Osborne last month shortly after the couple split up.

Reports suggested that the former TOWIE star had cheated on his wife while she was expecting, leading to Dan moving out before the birth.

But as her due date grew closer, he moved back into their home to help Jacqueline with baby Mia when she was born.

It's clear the actress was born to be a mother. Since having her second child, Jacqueline has been quick to express her joy at having another daughter.

Days after giving birth, she wrote on Instagram, "Having 2 is different, but it is so amazing, I love seeing how Ella is with her little baby sister and how helpful and understanding she is towards me and how much I can and can’t do.

"It is amazing to me that Ella is just 3 years old. I couldn’t ask for a better family, filled with strong women! My girls are my absolute world and I can’t actually get over how lucky I am."
