Strictly Come Dancing star Stacey Dooley is experiencing all the joys and challenges that come with being a first-time mum - and one of them is lack of sleep!

Taking to Instagram on Monday, the TV presenter - who recently welcomed a daughter called Minnie with partner Kevin Clifton - shared a screenshot of a book's chapter, which was titled: "The Very Tired Girl".

Many of Stacey's celebrity friends and fans were quick to comment on the relatable post - with Motsi Mabuse writing encouragingly: "[heart emojis] you've got this."

One fan stated: "It gets easier Stacey, I promise [heart emoji] tiredness is a much underrated form of torture. The early days of a baby." Another said: "Easy does it... there is no perfect way. Do what works for you and your little one." A third added: "You can do this. It gets easier, honestly."

Stacey and Kevin announced that their little one had finally arrived with a sweet Instagram photo which featured a handwritten envelope addressed to "Minnie's parents".
