CORONATION Street's Brooke Vincent has revealed she's struggling with 'mum guilt' after welcoming her second son Monroe last month.
The 28-year-old admitted she was left worried about how the newborn's arrival would impact her relationship with her 18-month-old son's Mexx.
Brooke told OK! Magazine: "I've had such mum guilt at times where I'm like, 'Can I love them both the same? How am I going to split the love I have for Mexx?"
"My biggest fear is mum guilt and no one really mentions that to you when you're having your second.
"I've been so worried about how it would affect Mexx as I didn't want him to be at home bored."
Despite her worries, the actress admitted Monroe has "slotted" into their family and Mexx is loving his new role as a big brother.
Brooke also admitted she's had a few emotional moments in recent weeks since becoming a mother-of-two, telling the publication: "I'm an emotional wreck when it comes to the boys".
Earlier this week, Brooke revealed her fear after going into labour before her scheduled C-section.
The actress, best known for playing Sophie Webster on Coronation Street, had opted for a selective operation after complications with the birth of her first son Mexx.
But she ended up in hospital ahead of time and welcomed baby Monroe on May 4th at 8.14am – the exact same time Mexx was born.
Speaking about the ‘scary’ birth, the 28-year-old told OK! Magazine: "My birth was a little bit more complicated this time."
Brooke, who had her Sheffield United partner Kean Bryan with her, admitted she didn’t tell anyone until she was entirely sure she was actually in labour.
Once she got to hospital her waters broke, but she had to wait until she could have a C-section.
Then when she got into theatre, things didn’t go any more smoothly as the doctors struggled to get Monroe out due to previous scar tissue.
Eventually they had to use forceps to get him out and Brooke had to wait an hour until she could first hold him.
Last week Brooke shared a black and white photo of the newborn's legs, and wrote: "💫On the morning of Tuesday 4th May at 8.14am; the exact same time as his big brother .. Our little boy came into the world.
"Monroe S J Bryan you’ve added so much love & happiness to our little family! Me, your daddy & big brother are all besotted with you 🌏💙".
