The former EastEnders actress, who gave birth to Florence Elsie in June, revealed that parenthood is proving a pleasure.
"She's so easy. I imagine if she was a stressful baby it would be different, but she's good so far," she told Celebs On Sunday.
"I'm absolutely loving being a mum but I'm feeling guilty that it's not as difficult as I thought it would be."
However, the 37-year-old, who married actor Tom Ellis in 2006, admitted that carrying her daughter had been a struggle.
"I didn't really enjoy being pregnant. I was hoping I'd be this earth mother type, but I didn't feel like that at all," she said.
