She split from her ex-convict boyfriend Bradley Wright six weeks after the birth of their daughter Polly in May.
But Amy Childs proved she was every inch the multi-tasking single mother, as she brought her beloved little girl to a photoshoot in Essex on Thursday.
Carrying Polly in her car seat, the 27-year-old former TOWIE star looked chic in a padded jacket and pink rollers as she arrived on set.

The Celebrity Big Brother star doted over her bundle of joy at the shoot, setting the car seat down so she could pack all her baby essentials.
With the car seat on one arm and a bag packed with Polly’s belongings in the other, Amy seemed to be relishing her independent mum status.
Warding off the December chill, she wrapped up in her long-line puffer jacket, which she layered over a white V-neck sweater with a plunging neckline.
Plumping her famous pout with a generous slick of taupe lipstick, the redhaired beauty framed her eyes with lashings of mascara.

Amy – who was recently named 3D-lipo’s Celebrity Mum of the Year – is currently bringing up her daughter alone, after splitting from her partner Bradley Wright, 25, earlier this year.
The duo went their separate ways six weeks after Polly was born, but Amy now says that she will allow Bradley access to his daughter.
Speaking to MailOnline, Amy revealed: ‘Do you know what, at the end of the day Bradley does see Polly.
‘He has got a relationship with Polly and that’s all I want him to be really, a good dad. And if he does see Polly then that’s fine, but it is what it is.’
On changing her lifestyle post-giving birth, she said: ‘It’s really nice being able to put Polly first – being a mum is a full time job but it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I wouldn’t change it for anything.’
The couple were trying for a baby before Bradley served his five-month spell in prison for handling stolen goods last year.
He and Amy had met in a pub in Essex two years ago but their relationship came to a halt in 2015 when Bradley was sentenced to 16 months in prison – but he had only served five months of his sentence as he was released early for good behaviour.
Discussing their split, she admitted that she started to feel more like Bradley’s ‘mum’ than his fiancée, admitting that the two even began sleeping in separate rooms before they officially called time on their romance.
Speaking to OK! magazine, she confessed: ‘When I found out I was pregnant, I said, “I want to work so hard to give her the best in life” but it felt like Brad wasn’t thinking about that.
‘After Polly arrived, he was sleeping in a different room. Towards the end I became more like a friend and his mum.’
The beauty claimed that she began to feel that the builder was ‘over’ their relationship as time went on.
She continued: ‘Even when he came home from work he’d have a cuddle with her and he did that a little bit but then he’d go upstairs. I think he was just so over it. When she was crying in the night, he wouldn’t come in and say, ‘Can I help?’ It was always me.’
Amy, who briefly reunited with her on-off beau in March, claimed both parties were overjoyed with the announcement of her pregnancy at the time.
Alongside her own eponymous fashion line, Amy runs her full-time beauty business.
