"I'm guessing it's to do with the children Holly… enjoy your weekend lovely," shared a fan, whilst another sweetly wrote: "You're a proper mum Holly, as I am to three little ones and Sunday's are always mad busy getting everything ready for the week ahead."

"Still beautiful as ever though. Go girl," commented a third fan.

Holly is notoriously private about her children on social media, but occasionally shares a rare glimpse of her life as a mum with her 7.2 million followers.

Holly has an incredibly close relationship with her three children

The presenter has previously told HELLO! that being a mum is without a doubt her favourite job. She said: "All I ever wanted to do was to be a mum. It wasn’t like when I was at school I thought, 'Oh, I’m going to be this big career girl'. Being a mummy is definitely my most favourite job of all, without a shadow of a doubt."

Being an in-demand presenter who previously juggled This Morning, Dancing on Ice and Celebrity Juice, it's no surprise that Holly sometimes finds it a "challenge" to balance her career and being a mum.

In an interview with Red Magazine, the 40-year-old candidly revealed: "Becoming a mum was the only thing I knew I definitely wanted when I was growing up, but the image I had never involved me being a working mum," she explained. As a result, she has experienced 'mum guilt', something many parents - the Duchess of Cambridge included - has spoken out about.
