Is it teething time for your little one?
Maybe Im selfish: Caroline Flack opens up about putting her work before family

Caroline Flack has swiftly become one of the UK’s biggest TV presenters with roles on shows like Love Island and The X Factor, however, the host has admitted she is worried about prioritising her career too much.

In an interview with The Sun, the 39-year-old presenter said she is concerned about starting a family.

“I’ve still kind of always put work first — wake up in the morning, go to work, come home — just like my boyfriend has.

“I’m scared it’s going to get too late where I’ve wanted to go, ‘Right, maybe slow down, think about having kids and maybe think about settling down,’ but I’ve never had that,” she explained.

“I feel guilty about it sometimes, I feel like maybe I’m being selfish,” Caroline confessed.

The Love Island presenter is currently in a relationship with tennis player Lewis Burton.

Caroline previously spoke out about people telling her when she should have children. Ahead of her 39th birthday, the former X Factor presenter said it is mean to tell someone what they should do with their life.

Caroline commented, “On that note, it's my birthday tomorrow. It's not a big one, but I'm getting older and a lot of people do say to me, like, 'Oh, you should have kids by now.' Or 'You should be doing this by now.'

“And I just think, 'Why? Why do we all have to do the same thing? It's just weird. People are weird. They are. Saying anything mean to someone is just weird,” she added.
