Katie Piper celebrates ‘first night out’ since giving birth by sharing rare photo with husband Richard Sutton

Katie Piper treated herself to a well-earned evening off from mum duties last night.

Attending the National Television Awards at the O2 arena in London, the glitzy red carpet bash was extra special for mum-of-two Katie this year as she revealed it was her, ‘first night out post baby’.

Katie only gave birth to her second daughter Penelope Diane just over a month ago, in December last year.

The adults-only night out was a treat for new mum-of-two Katie who has been inspiring fans with her very open approach to discussing her experiences of adjusting to life as a mum-of-two.

Taking to Instagram just a few days before her evening out in the capital with husband Richard, the star admitted that her days are nowΒ very hectic.

‘Ballet done, swimming lessons with two of them in tow now- all on 4 hours sleep!!! When you realise a working day was easy compared to this πŸ˜±πŸ‘ΆπŸΎπŸ’–,’ she wrote.

Katie also recently hinted that she’s feeling exhausted from feeding her bundle of joy, by uploading a snap of mug embossed with a gold ‘K’ with the words: ‘Black coffee kind of Monday! 😴#nightfeeding.’

Keen to document her very first evening away from her new baby and eldest daughter Belle, Katie delighted her followers by sharing two snaps with her man, as she celebrated spending some alone time with him for the first time since they became parents to two children.

‘When you turn @officialntas into your 1st date night,’ Katie captioned one of photos.

‘Love Love Love. You guys are always so well matched ❀️😍,’ said one of the blonde’s followers.

Another sweetly added: ‘Umm wow you look so incredible. Great pic of you both.’

For the star-studded event, Katie donned a form-fitting dress by Hasan Hejazi, which she accessorised with a pair of towering strappy stilettos by designer Tom Ford.
