Vogue Williams has opened up about how she deals with breastfeeding her daughter Gigi while away working with a clever hack.

The mum of two said she doesn't always find it easy when she is juggling Gigi on her boob, and two year old son Theodore when she's working from home or away on set.

Instead the Irish TV presenter took to Instagram wearing a wearable breast pump that means she can express milk when she's not with her children and still work.

In the video, Vogue sits in her bra top with the Elvie Curve and Elvie original pump discreetly tucked inside: "I'm mid-shoot and you're probably wondering what I'm wearing here…

"I have used the Elvie pump since I gave birth to Theodore, it's a really discreet breast pump that makes barely any noise. It's absolutely brilliant as you're not hooked up to a wire.

"As a working mum, as a mum of two children, it’s gonna allow me to breastfeed for even longer because, honestly, once I had Gigi I wasn’t sure I’d be able to keep up breastfeeding because I’d have to be running around after Theodore, so these have been a Godsend," she added.

Vogue gave an insight into her day while on a photoshoot and how she balanced pumping in between takes.

"This is one for all us multi-tasking mums! We’ve all been there. You’re trying to drink that coffee or send that email but with a baby (or two) on your hands (or your boobs) you end up feeling like you’re performing a circus act!

"I’m shooting today so knew I had to get myself organised. Thankfully I’m accompanied by two extra special guests to make things easier."

The Elvie's silicone breast pump has a natural suction and a valve that lets you control the suction strength and is £49.99 and the newer Elvie Catch are two sets of two breast milk collection cups with slip-proof security that are £29.99.

Vogue added: "I’ve always been a fan of my Elvie Pump and with that on one boob and Elvie Curve on the other, I’m not letting any of that liquid gold go to waste!"

The stylish Heart FM radio host shared her breastfeeding trick after she was forced to hit back at mummy shamers a month after she had given birth to her daughter, for going on a date with husband Spencer Matthews while breastfeeding.

She slammed cruel trolls who attacked her for her parenting choices after she took to her instagram to share a gorgeous snap of herself dressed up for an evening out.

"I have been home a lot which is amazing to be able to do. I’ve spent all my time with my babies but I do look forward to a nice lunch out… where to next," alongside a smiley face emoji.

After being inundated by comments from her followers praising her for her incredible fashion sense, one person asked: "Don't you breastfeed your baby?"

Clearly unimpressed by the personal question, Vogue, who is mum to one year old Theodore and newborn Gigi, hit back as she replied: "I do breast feed exclusively not that it’s any of your business.

"The baby was on our lunch date with us… also your choices are not mine. If I want to have a date with my husband and no baby I can. The joys of portable breast pumps!"
