Speaking directly to camera, the singer and podcaster said: "Quick question. Obviously I'm currently on maternity leave, whatever that is when you're self-employed.

The 34-year-old captioned the clip: "Genuinely hope you're all ok. This is just the most weirdest [sic] situation ever. Having children throughout this pandemic is exhausting. The guilt is unbearable."

In a follow-up video, she showed little Rafe sleeping and captioned it: Good job I've got this little cutie to keep me smiling!"

The couple are also doting parents to five-year-old Robin 

Last week, the mum-of-two shared photos and a video of little Rafe and captioned the images with a heart-melting message.

It read: "Truth is, I’m recovering from a section. I’m in absolute agony. I’m very short on sleep as Rafe is a nighttime guzzler. BUT I have honestly never felt so happy in my entire life. My heart could physically explode out of my chest."
