Christine McGuinness enjoys time with her kids after admitting she’s ‘all over the place’

Christine McGuinnes s enjoyed some paddling pool fun with her kids as her husband Paddy flew back to the UK last night.

The Real Housewives of Cheshire star, 34, focused on motherhood as she played with her twins Penelope, Leo, eight and Felicity, six, over the weekend, after speaking out on her marriage troubles.

Sharing a picture of her “babies” in the pool, the mum-of-three looked stunning sporting a white bikini, silk robe and fluffy sliders.

Captioning the post, she wrote: “My lifeys. School is closed for summer 8 weeks off babies! Let’s make this the best one yet, let’s take adventures and explore new places, let’s laugh every day!

“Let me show you the way. Wishing you all a happy summer.

“Good luck to all the parents and carers juggling kiddies, work, life…

“Especially those who will struggle with the change in routine! We’ve got this!”(sic).

Speculation has been growing surrounding Christine’s marriage with the Top Gear host, 48, with the blonde beauty admitting on Saturday they were going through a ‘very, very tough time’.

She told The Sun : “What I might have put up with in the past, I probably wouldn’t put up with now, and the same for him. I can’t lie we’re having a very, very difficult time.”

Although Christine was reluctant to go into detail about the issues within their marriage, she insisted she “didn’t cause this situation”.

The couple sparked speculation there was trouble in paradise when they both went on separate holidays, with Paddy jetting to Portugal with his mates, while Christine enjoyed a girls’ getaway in Croatia.

Paddy then popped off to Thailand filming for Top Gear, but took to Instagram on Sunday night to announce he was on his way back.

Sharing a pic of him on the plane, he wrote: “I is back baby! 11 hour flight but really enjoyed filming in Thailand, beautiful country.

“Yet no matter where I travel it’s always good to get home!

“Cup of tea, clean bedding and the kids are off skoo. #home #sunday #travel #weekend #workworkyworkwork.”

Paddy has remained tight-lipped regarding the couple’s reportedly rocky romance, but Christine has more been vocal.

Taking to Instagram, she wrote: “This year I met the most broken version of me, but also the strongest.

“Regarding the press… There is only one thing I want to make clear right now… I didn’t put us in this situation.”

However The Games star previously told OK!: “We’re really good, honestly. We have had difficult times but when I look back at our marriage and see where we are now, I think, ‘Wow, you know, we’ve done alright!’

“I couldn’t ask for anything more from him. I’m so grateful. I’m happy, I’ve got no complaints.”

The Games star has had a lot to contend with having been diagnosed as autistic last year.

Christine and Paddy’s children are also autistic and featured in the couple’s documentary: Our Family and Autism.

The pair were praised for their sensitive portrayal of the condition with many thanking the mum-of-three for her candour.
