The series will follow the star during her first year of motherhood

Charting the highs and lows of motherhood, fans of the star will follow her as she finds her feet as a mother, whilst juggling her career and the pressures of being with partner Paul in the media spotlight.

Sam's partner Paul received some criticism from viewers when The Baby Diaries aired in January, commenting that the property developer was "controlling".

Sam, 25, told HELLO! Online that Paul is a very hands-on dad

In the show Paul insisted on a homebirth, didn't approve of the baby clothes Sam had bought and refused to attend a yoga class. Paul also expected his heavily pregnant girlfriend to cook all of his meals, even after giving birth to their baby.

But the new mum was quick to defend him, saying that viewers mistook Paul for being controlling.

"I actually got more offended than Paul did," Sam told The Sun's Fabulous magazine. "Paul was like, 'Don't bite, I can take a bit of stick!' But he's never done TV before so he was nervous."

"The thing about Paul is that he cares about me and the baby so much that people mistake that for being controlling," explained Sam. "When I showed him the baby clothes and he was like, 'I'm not too sure on that,' it's just because he really cares about how the baby looks. He's a perfectionist.

Sam recently told HELLO! online that Paul has adjusted very well to fatherhood. "He is very hands on. He is really good, he takes him swimming every week, it's their bonding time. He also changes nappies, he is very good!"
