“For a long time, I was quite sick with an eating disorder and I had a companion … a live-in therapist, who would ensure I wasn’t doing anything unhealthy with my eating habits,” she explained.

“I have a love-hate relationship with social media. I wish I’d never got myself involved with it in the first place. I look at the comments on Instagram and think, ‘Oh, f—. Everyone thinks this about me.’ It would completely consume me,” she continued.

Sophie said that her live-in therapist helped her when she was spiraling over negative Instagram comments.

“One night, I was playing over and over in my mind a comment I’d seen on Instagram. I was like, ‘I’m so fat, I’m so undesirable,’ and spinning out. She said to me, ‘You know, no one actually cares. I know you think this, but nobody else is thinking it. You’re not that important,'” she said.

“That was the best thing anyone could have told me,” she continued.

“I have noticed that social media makes me incredibly anxious and it’s something I try to distance myself from. Having it off my phone has been so helpful. Now, if I do have to go on it, it’s for a few minutes once or twice a week, rather than hours every day. It’s made such a difference. Live real life — it’s much more fun,” she said.

She recently made her first public comments about her second pregnancy.
