Becky Adlington has opened up about her morning routine with her daughter Summer and like any other parent, she's admitted that it's not always plain sailing. The ex Olympic swimmer, who recently separated from her husband Harry Needs, gave fans an insight into her "chaotic" mornings.

"When you have a child your life is actually a bit chaotic," she said. "It's a case of waking up and sorting your child out. I need to change her nappy, then I need to feed her and I'm a mess!

"You literally get up and stay in your PJs with your hair all over the place!"

Becky and her estranged husband Harry Needs have a ten-month-old daughter

In March, Becky and her husband Harry shocked the celebrity world when they announced their separation. After just 18 months of marriage, the couple said that they had decided to split but continue to "remain close friends".

"We move forward with respect for one another and our focus and commitment is on parenting our gorgeous daughter Summer," they wrote.

Proof that Harry and Becky remain close came a few weeks after their split, when they both attended the wedding of Becky's sister Chloe. The amicable exes, who brought along their ten-month-old daughter, were in high spirits and shared photos from the happy event.
