Alison Hammond has admitted she had to stop breastfeeding her baby because her boobs were too big.

The This Morning star, 44, said she was “nearly killing” her son Aiden with her sizeable chest when she tried to nurse him.

So she decided to quit breastfeeding and switched to giving him milk from bottles instead.

"I was nearly killing him with the size of my t**s, I ain't gonna lie,” the showbiz reporter told the Daily Star.

“After a while, I realised that maybe my t**s were too big, so I started bottle feeding him."

Hammond had Aiden, who is now 14, via a Caesarean section.

“It took about 35 minutes to cut through all the layers because of all mine,” she said of the procedure. “It’s full-on stomach surgery.”

She added that being a mother is “the best thing that’s ever happened to me”.

“It’s enriched my life in ways that I could never imagine,” she said.

Hammond recently showed off a new slimmer look after deciding she wanted to lose some weight.

The presenter - who once admitted to feeling “embarrassed” by the number she saw when she stepped on the scales - started shedding the pounds after becoming a Weight Watchers ambassador earlier this year.

“I want my journey to empower others to think about making changes to their lifestyle to become the best version of themselves,” she said at the time.
