Rebecca continued her festival look by sporting white trainers and she ensured her hands were free to entertain her little one by toting her belongings in a black leather rucksack.

Little Summer put on a cute display in a blue and white striped T-shirt and shorts and shaded her eyes from the sunshine with adorable pink sunglasses. 

The day before, the blonde beamed as she cuddled up to her cute daughter and beau, Andrew Parsons 28, for a snap at the festival.

Rebecca rocked a casual outfit for the first day of the festival, wearing low-key denim cut-off jeans with a light blue striped T-shirt and white laced up trainers.

Rebecca’s appearance at the festival comes after the TV sports pundit, who won Olympic gold in the 400-metres freestyle in 2008, spoke candidly about motherhood in a lengthy post on Instagram. 

On Thursday, she revealed she feels guilty about leaving her daughter, Summer, but equally experiences the same emotion when she’s not working. 

The mother-of-one who boasts over 90,000 followers received a flood of comments from fans praising her efforts at balancing parenting with a career.

Rebecca, who co-parents her daughter Summer with her ex-husband Harry Needs, explained that she’s recently chosen to focus on spending time with her daughter before school starts in September. 

She and fellow swimmer Harry tied the knot in 2014, but announced their separation two years later when Summer was nine-months-old. 

She wrote: ‘As a single parent I’ve always felt so much pressure to juggle being a mum and work. I feel guilty when I work and feel guilty for not working!! 

‘This summer I’ve really tried to maximise my time with Summer more than ever as she starts school in September. 

‘Had such an amazing day today. Love family time and I’m so grateful & lucky I get this time with her.’

A stream of Instagram fans praised Rebecca’s parenting skills and declared the role as the hardest job in the world.

The Olympic medalist regularly shares photos from days out with her daughter on social media along with accounts of their family life.

Hailing Rebecca as a role model, one person wrote: ‘I totally feel your pain. I am the same with my daughter. Keep up the good work. You’re a great role model.’ 

Another said: ‘You are obviously doing a great job Becky! I have been a single parent to my son for over 13 years! It is hard bloody work!’ 

A third added: ‘Yes I share your pain it’s so hard trying to juggle everything on your own, but looks like you’re getting the balance right’
