Captioning the post, she penned: "Fan on my stomach rash, pain in my incision, swollen breast, exhaustion, and wanting more cuddles with Lyra but have to take it slow for recovery…. other than that, we’re all good! [Laughing emoji] Sending love to all first-time parents dealing with new adventures too." Despite her exhaustion, Janette was beaming in the photo and is clearly besotted in her baby bubble. 

Fans couldn't wait to offer their kind words of support for the recovering mum. "This tiredness and pain will pass just try and get through these first few weeks with as much rest between you as you can - don't worry about any housework or even getting dressed let people help and make you food - it gets easier," one kind follower commented alongside a red love heart emoji.

"I don’t think anyone or anything can really prepare you for parenthood. But you’re both doing so well & it’s worth every single second ….. you already know that! Take care [red love heart emoji]," a second penned. 

Dr. Zoe Williams added: "It is overwhelmingly exhausting! You are doing BRILLIANTLY!" alongside a heart eyes emoji. Ashley Roberts wrote: "Love you sis," and Pixie Lott, who is currently pregnant, replied with four red love heart emojis.
