Coronation Street's Sair Khan was flooded with support as she opened up on a tough few weeks.

The soap star is renowned for her role as Alya Nazir on the Cobbles. Sair thrilled fans with the news last month she gave birth to a baby boy.

The 36-year-old has taken to Instagram today to issue a personal update as she detailed her struggles during the postnatal period. She said: "The last few weeks have been tough but beautiful.

"Navigating the ups and downs of the postnatal period with each day and night rolling into the next and countless challenges with latching and feeding. We’ve been to sort little man’s tongue tie this morning so hopefully it’ll be the beginning of more settled times!

"With feeds keeping us busy around the clock it’s been so easy for me to stay home for days on end but I’ve also been quite content working my way through every season of ‘Suits’ as that’s all my brain and body can manage. Gentle nudges from Nathan about getting fresh air hadn’t really worked and the idea of using a spare half hour to catch up on sleep still win every time but ultimately the promise of cake and baby appointments have been the only way to get me out of the house lately.

"Now the mist is beginning to lift a little and I’m ready to get out and about more, i think. Hope the new Mama’s out there are showing themselves lots of love and compassion. I thought I’d be back to regular life straight after birth but the reality has been very different so just taking it step by step and trying not to feel guilty!"

Sair's Corrie co-stars took to the comments to send messages of support after the update. Samia Longchambon said: "Love your honesty Sair.. sending you so much love. Take one day at a time and whatever you feel like doing or (not) is fine! Go easy on yourself "

Sally Ann Matthews added: "Each journey is different, being open and not comparing yourself (and your child) to others is key. I know you’ve both got this. He’s a lucky boy x"
