Alesha Dixon cradles baby girl Anaya and holds daughter Azura, six, by the hand as she flies home to London after filming for America’s Got Talent in LA
She’s had a hectic few months, welcoming her second daughter and heading straight back to work in her new role on America’s Got Talent.
So, Alesha Dixon was no doubt happy to be back on home soil on Wednesday, touching down at London Heathrow Airport after an evening flight from Los Angeles.
The star was accomapanied by her daughters, wrapping up her baby Anaya, seven weeks, in a blanket and holding the hand of Azura, who turned six earlier this month.

Alesha, whose husband Azuka Ononye wasn’t pictured with the family, dressed comfortably for the long flight with her children.
She teamed black trousers with a cosy shawl-style cardigan and trainers, and accessorised with large sunglasses.
While Alesha carried her baby in a sling and kept hold of her eldest, an aide was seen helping the TV star with her luggage, pushing a trolley laden with two large suitcases and a pair of holdalls.

Alesha has spent the past few weeks filming the audition stages of America’s Got Talent in Los Angeles, after being recruited by her Britain’s Got Talent boss Simon Cowell for a spot on the judges’ panel.
It was during filming for the show earlier this month that it was revealed Alesha had welcomed her second daughter, after she was pictured without a baby bump.
The star later confirmed her happy news on Instagram, sharing a sweet photo of baby Anaya and revealing she was born on August 20.

The 41-year old first revealed her prominent baby bump during the opening live show of Britain’s Got Talent’s thirteenth series earlier this year, prompting surprise from fans and confirmation from show hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.
Speaking to Terri Seymour on an episode of Lorraine this week, Alesha explained she would have kept her pregnancy under wraps completely if it wasn’t for her commitment to BGT:
‘I managed to go six months keeping it quiet… I don’t go out of my way to keep it quiet,’ she said.

‘I never feel this strong need to declare everything. I think everything in it’s time. I think the way the pregnancy was announced with Ant and Dec on the show was just really sweet, obviously at that point I couldn’t hide it any more.’
Alesha added that she has felt much more relaxed as a second time mum, and has relished being back at work. ‘When I had (first child) Azura I didn’t leave the house for about two months, here I am Anaya is two months and I’m already in America, I’m working and it all feels right and it feels good,’ she explained.
‘I don’t know if it’s just the fact that she’s my second and I’m more relaxed but I’m happy so nothing feels stressful.’
