Myleene Klass says daughter Ava is priority

10/19/2007 at 03:13 PM ET

British television presenter and pianist, Myleene Klass, 29, knows what takes top priority in her life – her new baby daughter, Ava Bailey, 9 weeks. Instead of worrying about her weight she is enjoying time with Ava. Myleene says:

I don’t weigh myself, and I can promise I’m under no professional pressure to get slim. The last thing Ava needs is a neurotic mum. I’ve read all this nonsense about me dieting and going to the gym. I can’t. I’m breastfeeding and I have to eat!

Instead of consuming her time watching scales, Myleene has one thing on her mind. She says:

All I can think about is babies, babies, babies. We’ve got a baby to look after and she is our priority.

Myleene was originally scheduled to return to television in October hosting the BBC’s The One Show alongside Adrian Chiles, however, she has just announced that she will not be returning in order to spend time with Ava. Myleene is also due to return to television in November to host ITV1’s Saturday Night Divas, a show featuring women singers for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Ava’s father is Graham Quinn, 34. Graham and Myleene have been engaged since March 2006.
