And of course little Ava was in Dublin to see her family while mum got stuck into the work.
This was one work event where Myleene was lucky to have Irish fiancee Graham Quinn’s family at hand to look after the little one. Since taking time off for her pregnancy Myleene has been one of a few mums who went straight back to work after the birth of her daughter.
But she revealed while juggling TV presenting, modelling, clothing design and a radio show with her classical music career being a working mum had its rewards there’s a few pitfalls. I don’t like to get bored she said, adding: It’s not easy doing all this with a baby now. It’s takes twice as long to get ready and get out the door, but it’s worth it.
I bring Ava with me a lot. She already has ten stamps on her passport.
Myleene also says that with motherhood came a whole new set of priorities for her and one of these was setting a good example for her daughter.
She said: I want my daughter to grow up and feel empowered. I’m so tired of reading about WAGs.
Young women should grow up not aspiring to marry a footballer and live off his money.Â They should grow up saying this is my job, this is the career I choose, this is my own money and I will spend it as I wish and here is my family and I will look after them however I see fit, I won’t be dictated to.
