Rachel told Cheshire Life in 2017 that she always wanted a big family, and convinced her husband to have a fourth child.
"I spent quite some time persuading my journalist husband, Luke, that our family would be complete with a fourth child; quite something when we had originally planned to have only two."
The journalist regularly shares sweet pictures of her family on her Instagram- although she tends to keep her husband’s face private.
Her son also regularly features on her page with her last posting a picture of her son dressing up as a Harry Potter character on World Book day.
Among the children, the couple also have an adorable dog called May – who Rachel admits enjoys eating vegetables.
Chatting to her co-host Charlie Stayt, Rachel said: “There’s a bit of a raw food fad for dogs at the moment. My dog loves – she eats a bit of meat and biscuits – but she loves raw veg.
“Carrots, lettuce, cauliflower, broccoli stalks… all of that stuff. I don’t know if you are supposed to feed it to the dog but I chuck her the food!”
