Corrie star Lucy Fallon opens up about anxiety struggle since welcoming first child

Coronation Street star Lucy Fallon has shared a candid picture with her baby as she opened up about her personal struggles as a new mum.

The soap star, 28, posted a selfie wearing a white T-shirt with her blonde hair tied up as she cradled her adorable baby.

She captioned the sweet snap of the duo: “Mental health week."

The caption continued: “There is nothing in the world that can prepare you. From giving birth, the aftermath and then having this teeny tiny lil human bean to take care of.”

Lucy went on to explain how she has struggled with anxiety since giving birth in January.

She said: “The thing I’ve struggled with the most is the anxiety that comes with being a mum. I question everything I do every single day and I am honestly winging the life out of it. But we are here and we’re having a gorgeous time.”

The star finished and said: “Sending love and positive vibes, we all got this x.”

This isn’t the first time that Lucy has opened up about her struggles as a new mum, as she recently posted a makeup-free snap with the caption: “If ur in the thick of newborn chaos – it gets so much easier.”

Her openness about her experience and how she was feeling was met with support and gratitude from her fans.

One fan commented: “I honestly wish that someone had said this to me after I gave birth and I lost my s**t. Everyone just acted totally normal, no one said anything and it was like it was my problem to deal with. So thank you for acknowledging the struggle”, while another said: “I needed to see this”.

A third commented: “Wow Luce you look incredible, you’re absolutely beautiful”, while another said: “Agreed! My baby girl is nearly 9 months old xx”.

Lucy, who shared her first child with her partner Ryan Ledson, 25, recently showed fans a sweet tattoo tribute she got for her four month old baby Sonny.

Taking to Instagram, she shared a video montage as she walked into the tattoo parlor. It showed a shot of the room, then the stencil being placed onto her arm before showing the tattoo gun doing its work.

The actress then posted a snap of the finished result with the caption: “My lil” with a sunshine emoji.
