Christine McGuinness discusses her “greatest regret” after gaining six stone during pregnancy.
Christine McGuinness, Paddy McGuinness’ model wife, has spoken out about her “greatest regret” during her pregnancy with twins Leo and Penelope, and her six-stone weight gain.
Christine McGuinness has spoken out about her “greatest regret” during her first pregnancy.
Paddy McGuinness, 33, is the father of twins Leo and Penelope, eight, and Felicity, five.
Christine admits in her new book, A Beautiful Nightmare, that she wishes she had taken more pictures the first time she was pregnant.
“Looking back, it’s disheartening to see how little I photographed myself while pregnant with the twins,” she explained.
It’s one of the worst decisions I’ve ever made.
“I struggled with my body’s size during pregnancy, gaining six stone.”
“Right now, I’m in a different frame of mind.
I’m thrilled with my weight gain and the fact that I was able to carry the babies to term.
I also had two healthy, well-weighted children.
“I’m really proud of my body for pulling this off.”
And I didn’t have to worry because the weight was quickly shed.
“Most importantly, I realized how incredible the female body is.
And when I found out I was pregnant with Felicity, I was overjoyed and took pictures almost every day.” Christine recently appeared on Loose Women to discuss how she plans to tell her three young children that they have autism.
The TV personality was diagnosed with autism earlier this year, and she believes it has helped her explain the disorder to her children.
“When we do talk about it with kids, I can now say, “You’re just like mummy,” she said.
Mummy is at the office.
Mummy is now a happily married lady.
Mummy is a mother who raises a family.
“And I believe we need to address while we’re here as well,” Christine continued, “because obviously autism is a large enormous massive spectrum.”
My kids and I have no idea what it’s like to be autistic.
“There are people who are really, really struggling with a lot of things.
“Some autistic people may not be able to communicate yet,” Christine says, “and there will be parents who are still waiting for their children to say ‘Mummy.'” Christine and her three children were told in August that they were “high up the spectrum” after performing well on a test.
Paddy, 48, and she had chosen to put themselves to the test, she said.
