Baby love hits new heights as Helen Flanagan lifts up tot Delilah to plant a kiss on her lips.
The Coronation Street star, 28, only gave birth in June to her second child with Celtic footballer fiancé Scott Sinclair, 29.
Yet as Helen splashed about in a blue bikini on a beach in Dubai she was clearly back in great shape.
In the soap she plays dozy Rosie Webster but swapping rainy Weatherfield for the sunshine looks like a smart move.
The former I’m A Celeb campmate hit back last weel after fellow mums told her she’d committed a potentially dangerous parenting faux pas – by weaning her baby daughter too early.

Little Delilah was born four months ago and was being exclusively breastfed – until recently when Helen decided to introduce solids into her diet.
Helen came under fire from worried mums, who pointed out that medical advice is to keep babies on milk alone until they’re six months old.
She replied, "I’m only giving her little licks of the spoon not the whole packet and on the baby packages it says from 4 months onwards and no mum shaming please that I didn’t boil the fruit. I am still feeding her myself and will do as long as she needs."

Helen now lives in Glasgow with her Celtic star partner, 213 miles away from Corrie’s Manchester.
She filmed her last scenes as Rosie in April before giving birth in June, but with Delilah and her big sister Matilda Jessica, three, to look after, she confirmed a few things need to happen before she can make a comeback to the show.
"I would love to come back," she told ITV’s Lorraine, "but it needs to be something that works around the girls."
