Christine McGuinness reveals reason she doesn’t want any more children

Christine McGuinness opened up about how her life bringing up her twins, who are autistic, has changed for the better.

Despite this, she has said that she is "done" having any more children.

Christine, who has three kids with husband Paddy – twins Leo and Penelope and daughter Felicity, appeared on Loose Women today to speak on World Autism Awareness Week.

"I must say things are getting better," Christine said when asked about the twins. "They've come along so much better."

Explaining that they had "matured" and that they were able to "manage their meltdowns better", she insisted that they had a "good life".

However she conceded that it could be difficult with Paddy away from him so much.

"They're learning to socialise which I never thought they'd be able to," she told the panel. "We thought we were going to be stuck in this rut… I didn't believe it would get better but it does."

Asked whether she would be having anymore children, she said: "I really wanted six children, I don't know what I was thinking!

"But honestly, we're done. It's not because we don't want another autistic child, because to be honest that's what I know… it's just because of their autism, we are stretched."


Speaking about Paddy being away from his family so much she said that he was "missing home" but "having the time of his life".

This comes after Christine tole New magazine that her husband was so busy she would have to call his agent if she wanted to have lunch with him.

She said: "Throughout last summer, we really put a lot of effort into our marriage and tried to find time together, because we knew that something we were missing.

"But, just recently, he's so busy with work, we're like passing ships.

"Whenever we do have a day together at home, we go for lunch in the local village while the children are at school.

"It's very rare we go out together.

"It's not romantic and it's not the best thing in the world, but if we can grab breakfast together, we're happy with that.

"I might have to ring his agent and say, 'Can I book in lunch?' It's so busy, but it's good."
