Christine McGuinness, 31, has opened up on the difficulties that come with being “full-time carers” to their three children. The couple, who tied the knot in 2011, share twins Leo and Penelope, six, and three-year-old Felicity.

All three of the couple’s children have been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.
Speaking candidly about the pressures that come with being a “strong unit” for their family, the model admitted it has taken its toll on her marriage.
“There's no time for us as a couple. No quality time, no date nights,” she confessed to this week's OK! Magazine.

She also revealed she has struggled with who to talk to after a bad day.

"I just don't feel there's anyone in my life that I would fully trust with anything.
