Christine McGuinness reveals she and Paddy have not told their kids they split two years ago

Christine McGuinness has revealed she and her estranged husband Paddy have not told their kids they split two years ago.
The Take Me Out host and model announced their shock split in July 2022, after 11 years of marriage.
The former couple share three children – ten-year-old twins Penelope and Leo, and seven-year-old Felicity, who are all autistic.

Christine has now revealed that the former couple have not told their children about the split because they “would not understand.”
“I always wanted my children to have both parents involved, regardless of our situation, and I’m happy that that’s the way it is,” she said. ”
“They have a mummy and daddy around, who love and support them.”

“We want to share Christmases and holidays, so none of us misses out. And I think we’ve got enough mutual respect for each other to put our differences to one side.”
“One thing that we will always agree on is that we want the children to be impacted as little as possible.”
“We chose to have these children together, regardless of what’s happened between us, and we will co-parent them for as long as they need.”

Christine also informed The Sun that the reason the pair are still living under the same roof, is for the sake of their three autistic children.
The 35-year-old said: “It’s the one thing that we completely agree on – the children’s needs come first,”
“We don’t want them to be affected by anything.”

She continued: “Patrick’s diary is busy, as it always is, so he very much dips in and out of the home, because he’s working away a lot.”
“The same as when I was his wife, I’m there to support the children when he goes out to work – that’s how it is.”
“When he comes back, that’s when I’ll try to put some of my work in.”
“It doesn’t affect the children, because they’re not moving anywhere.”
