Speaking in a video posted to TikTok, she said: "After I had Jupiter, I was like, ‘I’m not doing this again.’

“I think it was like, physically really hard on me. "It was just like, not for me the most amazing experience.

"I think I started to think about it in that way, that like what a blessing it is to be able to have this cute little baby come into the world.

“When I think about it, do I see Ju-Ju as like, an only child?

“I’m excited and Jupiter’s excited."
