After welcoming her first baby into the world last year, Katie Piper has focused all her attention on caring for her sweet daughter Belle. And it sounds like the inspirational star is ready to expand her family with her fiancé James Sutton.

Sharing a picture of herself holding what appears to be a real baby, Katie beamed at the camera and looked completely in her element.

The doting mum captioned the Instagram picture: "Mummy's bringing home a brother for you! #broody."

Katie Piper is already the proud mum to daughter Belle

Some followers jumped to the conclusion that she had adopted a second child, but it looks like Katie, 31, was simply modelling during a photoshoot.

When she gave birth to baby Belle in March 2014, the author spoke exclusively to HELLO! magazine about her "precious" daughter.

"People used to say to me, 'It's a love like no other,' and I understand that now," said Katie. "She's so precious and I just feel so incredibly blessed to have her. She's our world."

Katie, who is fiercely protective of her little girl, has said that Belle is "her world"

The Caesarean delivery was something of a miracle as Katie thought she would have trouble conceiving after the brutal acid attack she suffered in 2008. She has since undergone more than 100 operations as a result of the attack.

Katie added: "To have had my own life saved in hospital and then to be there giving life to this precious little person, I thought, 'This is why, this is what it's all about.' I already felt grateful that, after the attack, I'd managed to restore a life, have a job, friends, a social life.

Crazy to think how he was once a stranger and now he's one of the most important people in you life

The philanthropist and her fiancé James Sutton got engaged in December 2014

"Then, to meet and fall in love with James, a man I knew I wanted to have a baby with and who makes me so happy, and now to have Belle – it's just amazing. Most of all I want her to be happy. I thought I knew, after all that happened to me, what happiness meant, but having Belle has shown me what true fulfilment is."

In December 2014, Katie announced her engagement to James. The philanthropist, who set up the Katie Piper Foundation for burns victims, showed off her glittering circular diamond ring in a selfie on Twitter.
