Stacey Solomon is calling on fellow mum Molly-Mae Hague for some beauty tips while caring for a newborn baby, after she claims she turned herself into a 'Miss Trunchbull lookalike'.
Stacey welcomed her fifth child, a little girl named Belle, earlier this month with husband Joe Swash.
It comes just a few weeks after Love Island star Molly-Mae and her boyfriend Tommy Fury welcomed their first child, a daughter named Bambi.
But while the PrettyLittleThing creative director seems to look super put together and immaculate in all her snaps since giving birth to baby Bambi, Stacey admits she's struggling to keep up.
In particular, Stacey has been trying to achieve Molly-Mae's signature bun, but can't seem to get the same look as the Love Island runner-up.
Taking to her Instagram Stories, Stacey admitted: "I thought I'd scrape my hair back into a bun today because I keep seeing people doing it and it looks beautiful. I see Molly-Mae do it and she looks beautiful.
"I call it 'newborn fresh.' Scrape your hair back, chuck it in a bun and you look really pretty and natural and it pulls all your face back."
Stacey then showed her fans the results of her attempted 'newborn fresh' look, admitting she didn't really manage to achieve the desired result.
Pulling faces at the camera, Stacey asked: "Why, when I do it, do I look like Miss Trunchbull? Why, why? Why don't I look 'newborn fresh' like Molly? I look like I'm going to shove my newborn into the chokey!"
Stacey added in the Story caption: "Can someone please tell me why I can't pull this off? Why do I look like I'm going to chuck Belle into the [chokey].
"Can you send me a newborn slick back hair tutorial please @mollymae."
Stacey is, of course, referring to Roald Dahl's Matilda, in which school principal Miss Agatha Trunchbull puts misbehaving students in a small closet covered in broken glass and rusty nails.
Miss Trunchbull is also known for her army-like pantsuit and the tight, scraped back bun she wears at the top of her head.
I think we can all agree that Stacey certainly doesn't look like the the terrifying school teacher.
And Molly-Mae has definitely had her share of beauty struggles since having baby Bambi, too.
Just yesterday (Monday, 27 February), Molly shared a photo to her Instagram Stories of her freshly washed and styled hair.
But, just a few hours later, she posted the disastrous results when baby Bambi threw up up on top of her hair.
"Bambi knew it was a fresh hair day x" she joked as her sister Zoe is seen in the background beside herself with laughter.
Stacey's newborn daughter Belle is her fifth child overall, but her third with husband Joe Swash.
Fans presumed that the little girl would be named an 'R' name, since her other two children with Joe are named Rex and Rosie, but instead, Stacey revealed that she had chosen Belle to remind them of 'bluebells that are about to bloom as you bring the spring with you into the world'.
