Look blooming fabulous like Myleene wearing Ellie Lines

Congratulations to Myleene Klass who has welcomed a little boy into the world!

She’s showing off the new addition to the family in this month’s OK magazine, and she’s doing so in a very stylish Ellie Lines dress.

The silk maxi number is perfect for any new mum as you can simply throw it on without any fuss, and it still ticks the trends thanks to the floral print. It’s also super flattering with the contrasting yellow collar and waistband and also breaks up the bold oversized print, which will no doubt last a lifetime in your wardrobe.

Fans of the British brand include Binky Felstead and Holly Willoughby, so why not join the gang? Myleene’s dress may not be available to buy, but the current collection is all yours via the link.

'Apollo is the god of music and science - my two passions,' Myleene explained. 'We thought it was such a strong name and at 8lbs 5oz, he was a strong, bouncing boy.'

While Apollo was a healthy weight, Myleene explained that the birth was 'complicated', revealing:  'My waters broke and I was in the birthing pool. We had a really easy first three hours, to the point that I thought we would all be home by 7pm. 

'But I don't remember what happened next. I lost five hours of my life and it was a pretty complicated birth in the end.'

The mum-of-three added that giving birth in her 40s had been 'an extremely different experience' to what she had been through previously.

However with her baby now safe and sound at home, the Classic FM presenter added that she knew time was precious and that means revelling in the moments she is able to spend with her baby, even the gruelling night feeds.

Following the birth of her third child earlier this month, Myleene shared a simple snap of her newborn's hand alongside the date he was born - 01.08.19.

On Saturday the former Hear'Say singer made a return to her Instagram page to share a glimpse of her eldest child Ava Quinn's lavish 12th birthday party. 

The party saw Ava and her friends treated to a nail polish inspired cake, personalised T-shirts and a sleepover in a luxury Teepee which came with beds adorned with sparkling cushions. 

Each guest was also given a plush pamper gift set that included sleeping masks, slippers and robes to take home.   

A caption written by Myleene next to the pictures read: 'I mean!! My awesome daughter Ava turned 12 yesterday and we went all out glamping for her party.

'It was more amazing than I could have imagined. Thank you @sleepyteepeeuk for waving your magic wand, you're the absolute best!' 

Meanwhile, Myleene shared her Hello! cover to Instagram and proudly wrote: 'Such an honour for me and my son to appear on the cover of @hellomag together. Apollo has landed! Xxx.' 

In July, Myleene, told ITV's Lorraine Kelly that her daughters could not wait to become big sisters and had even starting picking out names for their new brother.

Myleene first went public with her relationship to Simon in May 2017. 

The pair announced they were expecting their first child together on Valentine's Day (February 14).  

Speaking to Fabulous magazine about her relationship with Simon, Myleene previously said: 'How awful that I could have gone through my life and not met him. Imagine never getting why people write those crazy love songs or do crazy things.

'I get it now as a grown-up, and it's a lovely, lovely thing. To feel like this is a whole other level, and it's quite incredible. I'm just very happy. About time, eh?'  

In 2017, shortly after Myleene and Simon had moved in together in North London, she spoke about their romance. 

She said: ‘He has two amazing kids, I have two amazing kids [who are around the same age], we met at the right time and he makes me so happy that I’m grinning like an idiot most of the time.’ 

'The lovely thing is that I enjoy my relationship with him so much. I don’t need him; I’ve proved I can manage life on my own. 

'I’m there because I want to be with him. It’s more powerful because it’s a choice and it feels like the right place to be.’ 

The year before, Myleene had said she had decided to 'own' being a single mother after her husband Graham left her in 2012.

The television presenter discussed how she balances motherhood with her career in an interview with The Daily Telegraph's Stella magazine.

She said: 'I am a single mother. I provide for my girls, I feed them, I look after them. 

'I think there are a lot of women out there in a similar position. You think it's better to be with someone – but the reality is it's not better.

'You think it's a catastrophe that the relationship has ended, but it isn't at all. In the first few months, I hated those moments when the girls were in bed and I was on my own. I worried that all decisions were mine.

'It took me a while to realise that, actually, I love that. Me and my girls are a unit, we are strong, we are completely and utterly bonded I decided to 'own' being a single mother, to challenge the stereotype.' 

Myleene previously told Daily Mail's YOU magazine that at home, she does all the practical work and is teaching Ava and Hero how to clear drains and put up shelves. 

She said: ‘My dad gave me a toolbox and it’s my best present ever. I’m super-practical. I love fixing sinks and putting up pictures.’
