Kate Thornton talks pregnancy and post-baby health

British presenter Kate Thornton reveals how she got back in shape after the birth of her son.
TV presenter Kate Thornton has revealed details of her post-pregnancy fitness regime after giving birth to her first child last summer.

The 35-year-old former X Factor host welcomed her first baby, son Ben, with fiance DJ Darren Emerson in May last year and claims motherhood is so much better than the perks that came along with her old celebrity lifestyle.

Commenting on her postnatal health regime, Kate told Closer magazine: "After the birth, I gorged on sushi and started doing two-hour walks with Ben in his buggy.

"I don't miss the drinking champagne at celeb parties at all. Being a mum is a hundred times better."

Kate and partner of four years, Darren, announced their engagement in 2007 and are reportedly planning to tie the knot in the very near future.
