    ‘Completely objectively, she is perfect,’ went on the former Reign star. ‘As much as I want to post every movement of her toe, I have decided to curb my urge to show her off and protect this little one’s privacy until she can make her own decision.

    ‘It’s not her fault her mom was on TV,’ explained the actress, ‘and she deserves to make that choice for herself :).

    ‘At the moment, she barely knows she has hands so might take a min,’ joked the new mum, before explaining that her decision not to share snaps of her new daughter might change in the future.

    ‘I reserve the right to change my mind at any point in the future,’ she explained, ‘I am currently very sleep deprived and a puddle of emotions.
