    Florence also previously spoke of her PND diagnosis, which occurred after the birth of her daughter Iris, nou vyf.

    She said she had struggled to cope with how different her life as a mother was to her life before.

    She went on to say that looking after her child made it harder for her to turn to the usual things that helped her balance her anxiety, which included yoga and jogging.

    The ex-model revealed her family encouraged her to see her doctors after she experience several mood swings.

    She revealed that when she got pregnant with her son Jimmy she chose to stay on Prozac, even though she struggled with guilt.
