MRS Hinch has revealed she's battling mastitis – when your breast becomes swollen, hot and painful – and still in her pyjamas at 6pm three weeks after giving birth to baby Lennie.
The cleaning influencer, 31, gave birth to her second baby at the end of May to a a little boy named Lennie Alan James Hinchliffe.
Now she has shared the gruelling reality of motherhood for the second time with her fans – revealing she had stitches post labour.
And they are sure to be grateful for her comments, as she admits it is NOT easy – and she's even cried trying to get her two ready for a walk in the park.
"Truth is I am in a newborn baby bubble," she wrote in her stories.
"It is amazing and I feel incredibly blessed BUT I am also exhausted to the point of falling asleep even when I'm speaking to someone.
"I have mastitis which is really quite painful when I'm up at night feeding I get those on/off waves of feeling sick in my stomach like you get before an exam.
"I finally get Len to sleep and then Ron wakes him up.
"I went for a walk to the park the other day and trying to get two under two dressed and out the house was like a comedy show and I even cried."
She then added: "P.S. It's almost 6pm and I'm still in my dressing gown from yesterday and I'll probs still be in it tomorrow."
Mrs Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchcliffe, was in hospital for a number of days after giving birth to little Lennie who is a much-wanted baby brother to Ronnie, who is almost two.
The newborn is also 'brother' to Henry, the family pooch who Sophie considers another brother for her two sons.
The social media star has shared sweet clips of her sleeping baby and gushed that her "heart has doubled in size" as she held him in her arms.
After Lennie got home from hospital she wrote: "We are home guys. I can't wait to show you Ron Len and Hen meeting for the first time…
"My heart has doubled in size. Thank you for so many amazing messages. We love you all!"
The mum-of-two also shared a sweet snap of little Lennie snoozing with a blanket draped over his body.
"Hello world. Sending love to you all," she wrote.
And quoted: "Sit back, relax and take in every moment. You will only live this day once."
The proud new mum shared the meaning behind her newborn son’s name – and her fans agree it’s super cute.
Her fans wanted to know why she’d chosen the name Lennie Alan James, and she explained each of them in detail.
She explained: “Both me and Jamie loved the fact that Lennie rhymes with Ronnie but also when shortened to Len rhymes with Hen."
Hen is, of course, is short for Henry, the adorable family dog, while Alan is "my dad's name," Sophie revealed.
She explained that James is actually Jamie's real name and they wanted little Lennie to share his dad's name – just like his big brother Ronnie whose middle name is also James.
She explained: “On his birth certificate he is officially James so we wanted both our boys to have James.”
Mrs Hinch shared the news of her son's birth on Saturday with a candid snap of her holding the newborn just hours after he was born.
The proud mum announced that Lennie was born in the early hours of Sunday morning, as she shared the news in the evening.
Sharing the news with her 4.1 million fans, she wrote: "Hello Everyone. Jamie, Ronnie, Henry and I have a little someone to introduce to you.Born today, 22/05/21 at 12:56am, weighing 7lb 4 ounces, please meet Lennie Alan James Hinchliffe.
"I have absolutely no words to explain how I’m feeling right now guys but what I do know is that our hearts are so full.
"We are so very grateful and SO in love. Let the Adventures of Ron, Len & Hen begin.
"Thank you so so much for all of your beautiful well wishes and messages checking in on us.
"Your support and love means the world. Lots of love to every single one of you xxxx Jamie, your boys and I love you millions."
Mrs Hinch,posted three photos to mark the occasion and to introduce her son Lennie to the world.
In addition the sweet snap which showed her cradling her newborn, the other two showed the tiny bub sleeping in his mum's arms.

While Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague penned: "What a beautiful little boy. Congratulations."
After announcing the birth of her new baby, the proud mum-of-two later shared a series of clips on her Instagram Stories which detail her time in hospital in the lead up to the birth.
Mrs Hinch signed off Instagram last week as she prepared for the birth of her son after hitting the 40-week mark.
Sophie announced her pregnancy in a sweet Instagram post on New Year's Day.
The mum-of-two posted a snap of her son Ronnie holding a sign which read, "New Year's resolution – be the best big brother. 2021."
She also posted another photo of herself and husband Jamie cradling her little bump while holding ultrasound photos.
On her Instagram story at the time, Mrs Hinch added that she was "crying and shaking so much right now" after sharing the joyful news with fans.
I have mastitis which is really quite painful when I'm up at night feeding I get those on/off waves of feeling sick in my stomach like you get before an exam.
The "cleanfluencer" revealed that she didn't know she was expecting at the time and that it was her mum who'd picked it and told her to do a pregnancy test.
At the time, Sophie told Fabulous: "It's all been quite a shock because it happened sooner than we expected it to and so I was already a couple of months' gone by the time we found out.
"Just like last time, it was my mum who noticed. She was watching my Insta Stories and said: "Soph, go and do a pregnancy test… there's something there."
"I was like: 'Oh gosh, Mum, not again!' But yep, she was absolutely right."
Mrs Hinch has also kept her fans updated throughout her pregnancy, and in February, revealed that she wasn't sleeping as baby number two was "kicking her to death"
In an exclusive interview with Fabulous Digital in 2018, Mrs Hinch revealed that she first met her husband Jamie while they were both working in sales.
They went on to marry in 2018 and the following year, in 2019, they welcomed their first child together, Ronnie.
