Scarlett Moffat has a "completely different mindset" since becoming a mum.

The former 'Gogglebox' star, 33, welcomed baby Jude - her first child with fiance Scott Dobinson - last summer and she's now opened up about her new role as a mother insisting her son has changed her life and allowed her to "know" herself a lot better.

She told OK! magazine: "I have a completely different mindset these days - it was like a switch flicked in my head when I became a mam.

"I used to put so much pressure on myself and worry about other people’s opinions. Now? I don’t care. I feel I know myself a lot more. And I’ve given birth to a little human being - that’s amazing."

Scarlett went on to reveal the birth came as a surprise as she was about to go for a spa day to celebrate her sister's birthday, but it all had to be cancelled after her waters broke unexpectedly.

She added: "I was one of those women who swanned through pregnancy with no sickness, no acid reflux, nothing. I embraced every moment.

"Then last June at 35 weeks I was getting ready to go on a spa day for my little sister’s birthday when I suddenly heard a pop. Scott said: ‘Have you just wet the bed?’ but it was my waters partially breaking. So off we went, straight to hospital".

Scarlett insisted the birth was "wonderful" even though she has a low pain threshold, adding: “I’ve never even had a tattoo, that's how much I hate pain. But I think my body was on my side."

Scarlett is now looking ahead to her wedding as Scott popped the question five months after Jude's birth.

Scott got down on one knee amid a romantic set-up in their living room, which involved their baby son, and Scarlett gushed about the magical moment in a post on Instagram.

She wrote: “Mondays are my new favourite day. Walked in to find my soulmate on one knee, with baby Jude wearing the cutest outfit, asking the question, 'Mammy will you marry Daddy'.

"The most perfect proposal in my favourite place, our home ... I truly am on cloud nine, feel so lucky, it feels incredible being able to share this with you all, I always wished for this.”"
