Rebecca Adlington 'under own pressure' to lose baby weight

Retired Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington admits that she has put herself under pressure to get back into shape following the birth of her daughter Summer.

Retired Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington has admitted that she has put pressure on herself to get back into shape after giving birth to her first child in June.

The 26-year-old and husband Harry Needs welcomed daughter Summer just over eight weeks ago.

While Adlington is keen to lose the baby weight, she has insisted that she will not allow her fitness regime to affect the time that she spends with her daughter.

When asked by the Daily Mail if she feels under pressure, Adlington said: "Really only from myself. I don't feel quite like myself just yet but I've enjoyed doing a few workouts again and I am looking forward to getting back in my old clothes.

"I'm not going to rush it though, as I don't want it to totally cut into my time with Summer. My priority is her."

Adlington and Needs married in Staffordshire almost a year ago.
