Denise: ‘I’ve stopped breastfeeding’

Denise Van Outen has given up breastfeeding her daughter – because she fears being papped doing it.

The presenter welcomed her first child, Betsy, with husband Lee Mead, 28, in May.

‘I probably should have persevered a bit longer than three weeks,’ says Denise, 36.

‘But I can’t be sitting in Starbucks and breastfeeding, because they [photographers] are taking pictures.’

Denise admits cameras weren’t her only concern.

‘I wasn’t producing enough milk,’ she tells She. ‘And Lee wanted to be able to feed her.’
