Rochelle Humes bought her daughter a toy horse for Christmas.

The Saturdays singer has 19-month-old Alaia-Mai with her husband Marvin Humes and she believes she found the perfect present for the pony-obsessed tot.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''Alaia is obsessed with horses, so I bought her this horse that neighs and you can put a carrot in its mouth and it pretends to eat it.''

Rochelle also discovered another great gift for Alaia when she was out shopping for a present for her bandmate Frankie Bridge's 14-month-old son Parker.

She added: ''I bought her like one of those little cars that you can drive. I took her out shopping with me when I wanted to get Frankie's little boy a present. Alaia went in this Mini and she loved it and was driving it around the whole store and when it was time to go home she went absolutely mental, I was so embarrassed!

''Marvin was like, 'Give it to her now, she'll love it,' and I was like, 'No, she doesn't need it.' I was so proud, I was like, 'Yes, strong mum!' ''

The 25-year-old singer is thankful her daughter is still too young to have asked for expensive presents.

She said: ''It's great when they're young, you don't have to spend a great deal of money and it looks like you've got them so much. It's when they get to 11 and they're like, 'Can I have an iPad?' And you're like, 'Well you can't have anything else then.' That's when it gets expensive.''
