The mum-of-three revealed she won’t be having any more children.

Christine McGuiness shared the news earlier this month that both her four-year-old twins were diagnosed with autism.

However, the 29-year-old says that she refuses to let the stress show in front of her children.

“I never let my husband or the children see me cry, that’s not going to help anyone,” she told The Mirror.

The mum-of-three revealed that after welcoming her daughter Felicity ten months ago, she is not planning on having any more children with her husband, Paddy McGuiness.

“We’ve had to reconsider plans because the twins need us and we are stretched as it is.

“We really wanted a big family. We wanted eight children. We just thought we could keeping going.

“But we don’t have any help and Felicity is still not sleeping. Sometimes we are exhausted.

“It wouldn’t be fair to have more.”

Christine shared the news of her twins diagnosis at the beginning of the month, saying:

“I love you unconditionally, and I will encourage you both to embrace your autism. Because you are totally unique and fantastically awesome.”
