Working mum Michelle Bridges doesn't want to hire a nanny.

Like any working mum, fitness expert Michelle Bridges knows just how tough it is to juggle kids and career.

But The Biggest Loser star is making it work by taking her eight-week-old son Axel with her everywhere she goes – including meetings, interviews and even training sessions.

Bridges, who welcomed her first child with partner and fellow trainer Steve “The Commando” Willis in December, told The Daily Telegraph that the arrangement was working and that for now, she wasn’t interested in hiring a nanny.

“I don’t have a nanny, and I am not planning on getting one right now. I may have to have one in future, someone who can come in on a case-by-case basis,” she said.

“I put out an Instagram shot of me training outside. Ninety-eight per cent of people were supportive, but some said: ‘Oh, maybe if I had a nanny I could do that’. No, I don’t have a nanny, he’s ­actually here with me, we are out together. No nanny required.”

Bridges' schedule is about to become even more hectic, though - this year, she will write a new column for Body+Soul in the Sunday Telegraph, focusing on fitness, health and nutrition. Her partner The Commando also writes a column for the publication.

Meanwhile, Bridges was full of praise for her partner, and said that Willis was a very hands-on dad.

“He’s changing nappies and disinfecting bottles...He’s very organised — it’s an army thing.”

It's great to see Michelle and Steve embracing parenthood - and best of luck to them in 2016.
