As Terri congratulated her on the new arrival, Alesha said: 'There is! I call it my little kangaroo pouch!'

The BGT judge was then asked how she managed to fit into the skintight red PVC dress she wore to film America's Got Talent: The Champions, which came just weeks after she gave birth.

She joked: 'Spanx are a girl’s best friend Terri, let’s be honest. It takes a lot of effort, it takes a lot of work, just to get Spanx on!'

Alesha then continued: 'When I had my first I didn't leave the house for 2 months. But with Anaya I'm out the house and in America. I don’t know if it’s just the fact that she’s my second and I’m more relaxed but I’m happy so nothing feels stressful.'

Discussing how she's stayed in shape since giving birth Alesha added: 'I've always allowed my body to do what it naturally does. I’ve not gone on any silly diets. I think getting help has really helped, having my mum around.

'Sleep is everything. Honestly, when you have more than five hours sleep with a new born baby, you can take on the world.'

Alesha confirmed the arrival of her second child when she stepped out to film the America's Got Talent auditions earlier this month in a crop top.

When asked whether she has any plans to have a boy, Alesha admitted her oldest daughter Azura, six, has already started asking for a little brother.

She said: 'You sound like Azura, literally two weeks after having the baby, ''Mummy, I think it’s time for a brother now don’t you?''. ''I don’t think so darling, I think mummy is done''.'

Alesha first confirmed that she was expecting her second child at the Britain's Got Talent live shows in May, with her prominent bump on display.

Discussing how she kept the news a secret for so long she said: 'I managed to go six months keeping it quiet… I don’t go out of my way to keep it quiet. I never feel this strong need to declare everything. 

'I think everything in it’s time. I think the way the pregnancy was announced with Ant and Dec on the show was just really sweet, obviously at that point I couldn’t hide it any more.'

The star will appear on AGT: The Champions in the US which is expected to air in 2020, alongside Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel.

She told Terri: 'I got the call from NBC, which was super flattering. I was pregnant and first thought was I want to do this!

'Second was - do they know I'm pregnant? And thankfully they did.'

Terri also asked Alesha whether she plans to release anymore music in the near future, with the star saying: 'I have been feeling a little overwhelmed with everything going on, so it’s a shame that my passion took a back seat, but hopefully I'll do some music in 2020.'
