‘I’ll sleep when she sleeps,’ Laura wrote in the caption.
It comes after she and Matty revealed why they chose not to sell images of their baby to magazines, despite receiving several generous offers.
‘This is something that is really personal so this is not something that either of us for even one second thought we would do via a magazine or anything like that,’ the jewellery designer told The Daily Telegraph.
