EastEnders actress Louisa Lytton shared a sweet tribute to her daughter Aura in a post featuring beautiful invisible pregnancy shots.
The 32-year-old, best known for her role as Ruby Allen on the BBC One soap, welcomed little Aura Olivia with her boyfriend Ben Bhanvra to the world on August 30.
New mom Louisa, who recently took a look at Aura’s first Christmas, reflected on her New Year’s Eve pregnancy as she prepared for 2022 with her baby girl.
Louisa posted a mirror selfie of her baby bump in bloom as she posed in black underwear before sharing a sweet shot of their cockapoo Riley resting her head on her stomach.

The actress also shared a side profile photo of her baby bump before capturing a spontaneous shot of Ben, Aura and Riley curled up on the bed.
Louisa also shared a gorgeous shot of Ben looking fondly at his newborn daughter before posing a shot of Aura smiling for the camera in a Peter Rabbit puppy.
Capturing the shots to her 258,000 Instagram followers, Louisa wrote: “2021.. The year I raised you. I wish you a happy new year.”
Meanwhile, the soap star recently hinted that she and Ben may be planning on joining their family soon.
She told the Sunday Mirror: “I’m an only child, so I said I’d like more than one. Ben has two siblings, so he’s always said three or four, although I don’t think that’s going to happen!”
But her boyfriend Ben insisted, “We’d definitely like another one at some point, but we’re not thinking about it yet.”
The couple, engaged in 2019, were forced to cancel their marriage twice due to the coronavirus.
Trying to reschedule, Louisa said, “We want to get married next year. We plan to do the wedding overseas and we will do something smaller than originally planned.
“It will be different now that she is here. We are family now, so it may not be as wild as it would have been. But we can’t wait to get married.”
Ben asked the question while the couple were on vacation in the Maldives and they are currently planning to get married in Italy.
Meanwhile, the couple first focused on parenthood and baby Aura was born in August.
Despite originally planning a water birth, Louisa was in labor for three days before having to undergo an emergency cesarean.
