Christine McGuinness is ‘trying to carve out’ her own career following her split from TV presenter husband Paddy McGuinness.
The 35-year-old model – who split from Paddy, 50, in 2022 after 11 years of marriage – explained that her main focus is supporting their three children, seven-year-old Felicity and twins Leo and Penelope, 10, who all have diagnosed with autism.
He told the Mirror: “My main focus for 2024 will be my children, it’s always been my main focus.
“Then work, work for myself and trying to carve out a career so I can always take care of my children and give them a future what they want and support them and their needs as much as possible. That’s really where I’m at right now.
“I want to try to be more present, which I’m very good with my kids. When I’m with the kids, that’s where I’m my most authentic self and it’s just me. It’s just me at home with the kids.’
Christine, who has launched a new wellness brand called Lifestyle, said she is easily distracted outside of her home life and one of her goals is to be “more present”.
The model also shared how she takes care of her children’s well-being by practicing yoga and mindfulness.
It comes after Christine was she was reportedly left “devastated” after learning her ex-husband Paddy is making a “mockery of their divorce.’
According to The Sun, a close friend of Christine’s revealed that she found out about Paddy’s plan after reading about it online.
They told the publication: “Christine is upset that their divorce will be the focus of the jokes.”
The source continued: “She is completely devastated by the divorce and we are genuinely worried about her.
“Paddy didn’t tell her about the pilot. The fact that she had to find out on the internet, like everyone else, that he did this has broken her even more.’
MailOnline contacted Christine’s representative for comment when the news broke.
News of the mockumentary came after Christine revealed to MailOnline that she has more breakdowns now than ever and is ready to show her true self after hiding behind a smile.
She opened up about how much she’s been struggling recently and admitted it’s “exhausting pretending to be okay”.
Christine revealed that she still has days when she has to cancel plans because she’s so burnt out.
Christine, who has autism and ADHD, leads a busy life as she balances the workload of motherhood, presenting concerts, making TV appearances and launching her own lifestyle product line.
When asked how she manages her seemingly endless list of responsibilities, Christine told MailOnline: ‘I don’t, and that’s to be perfectly honest. I don’t do it as well as what I present as I do it. I still have meltdowns. I probably have more meltdowns than ever.”
He continued: “I still have days where, you know, I’ll cancel plans because I’m exhausted. My main resolution this year is to try and plan the effort better and make sure I plan things to make sure I have time off in between.’
