She wiped tears away from her eyes as she asked her followers: "Guys is it normal to just cry all the time?
"I can't stop crying I don't know what's up with me.
"You can probably hear Matthew and Noah in the bath literally that loud."
Charlotte, who is late comedian Les Dawson's daughter, continued: "I'm crying cause I've not got Noah in the bed I'm crying cause I've not got Matthew in the bed I'm crying cause I love Jude so much.
"I'm crying cause I feel I've not got any time for anyone.
"I'm crying happy tears obviously but it's just mad innit.
"Your hormones are just everywhere – it's just crazy I'm struggling."
Charlotte announced her happy birth news on Instagram last month and was left shocked by how quickly it all happened.
Cradling her bundle of joy, Charlotte wrote: "Guys he's here!!! I can't believe it!!! I came in at 1am I had him by 2.13am. Can't wait to update you all as soon as but Matthew has nipped to get me a Maccies & I'm having cuddles."
The newborn's dad, Matthew, sadly returned without McDonald's, much to Charlotte's dismay, but he looked besotted with his son as he held him in his arms.
It was an anxious wait for the couple as they counted down the hours to meet their little man after Charlotte's waters broke.
She told fans at the time: "Oh guys it's been a bloody weird 24 hours…my waters broke last night but no pain managed to sleep through it. Just getting checked now as movements been slow, happier I can hear his little heart beat now."
The birth comes just days after Charlotte reacted to trolls contacting social services to lodge false claims over her parenting of son Noah.
