Rebecca was also wearing a pale pink knitted jumper and a pair of trainers, while carrying little Albie in a baby carrier across her chest.

The new mum, who was walking two of the couples’ pooches, wore her blonde hair in plaits and appeared to be going make-up free.

Rebecca’s husband Andrew wore a graphic print hoodie and a pair of grey tracksuit bottoms.

Last week, Rebecca said she is more confident at being a mum following the birth of her second child, after her eldest, five-year-old Summer ‘brought out the maternal side in me’.

Rebecca added that she’s ‘a bit more at ease in general’ now she’s settled into life as a mother of two. 

Discussing how she’s changed as a mother, she told Hello! magazine: ‘I am a bit more at ease in general. When I had Summer it completely transformed me as a person and brought that maternal side out in me.’

Meanwhile, Rebecca, who shares daughter Summer with ex-husband Harry Needs, revealed how infatuated she is with her boy after fearing she wouldn’t love him as much as she did Summer.

She explained: ‘I was worried I wouldn’t love him as much as I did Summer, but as soon as he was born, I loved him so much. It has just been so lovely.’

But Rebecca isn’t the only one obsessed with the new arrival as she added that Summer is ‘besotted’ by her baby brother.

She said: ‘She is just besotted by him. It’s so cute. I always knew she was going to be good with Albie; she is very loving and has got a natural maternal instinct about her. She gives him a kiss and always says goodbye to him before she goes to school.’ 

Meanwhile, Rebecca told how Albie’s birth was ‘straightforward’, explaining how he arrived just ‘two hours’ after she arrived at the hospital in labour.

Despite a seemingly easy birth, the same couldn’t be said for her partner Andy, with the star recalling how his hand was left ‘crippled’ with pain after she’d squeezed it so hard.

Rebecca and Andrew have been dating since January 2018 after they met through the dating app Bumble and moved in together last summer.  

The couple revealed their baby’s arrival with a sweet Instagram snap on the tot earlier this month. Rebecca penned the caption: ‘Welcome to the world Albie Bennett Parsons. 4.3.21.’

It has not been the easiest journey for the Nottinghamshire native, as she previously revealed in November that she was left unable to walk when she fell down the stairs and injured her ankle.

The blonde told how she was ‘in pain and swollen’ after a particularly hard week and explained she fell down ‘some steps’ on to her ankle.

Rebecca also spoke about the difficulties of having a child amid the coronavirus pandemic, confessing that she felt ‘disconnected’ from others due to current restrictions, and was terrified at the prospect of welcoming her child alone.
