Is it teething time for your little one?
Its really tough: Christine McGuinness admits she feels like a single parent

Christine McGuinness has opened up about how she is struggling to cope with her husband Paddy’s hectic work schedule. The mum admitted that her husband and TV presenter Paddy McGuinness isn’t at home as often as she would like.

Paddy is currently involved in numerous television projects including Take Me Out, Catchpoint, Celebrity Juice, and Top Gear.

Christine told The Mirror: "I would be lying if I said it's great. It's not, it's really tough. At the moment I barely see him.”

She said that there are even days when she feels like a single mum: “It is getting to the point now where I feel it is overwhelming and too much. I feel like a single parent at times.”

She is hoping that things will return to normality soon, but Paddy’s schedule only seems to be getting busier and busier. “I keep thinking it will quieten down soon but actually I don't think it will."

Christine is thrilled that Paddy’s career is thriving but it is having a negative impact on their family life.

“I would love to see him because he's my husband. I miss him and I love it when he's at home.”

She continued: “The children miss him when he's working so much. But I've got to support his work – I always have done. And he's doing it all for the kids, to provide for them and give them a good life."

Paddy and Christine are parents to five-year-old twins Leo and Penelope and two-year-old Felicity.
