‘Also, it’s well documented that Kev’s done it a couple of times before. So, you do have to bear that in mind, coming down the aisle like, “Hello everyone, I know what you’re all thinking”.

‘It’s just never been something I’ve dreamt about. But I couldn’t have done this (motherhood) without Kev.

‘It’s weird. I’ve always loved him, but it’s a different love I have for Kev now.’

The star continued spilling details on her home life with the talented dancer and said: ‘I don’t subscribe to the idea that you offer more stability if you’re married because we know loads of marriages end in divorce.

‘But Kev, I don’t want to sound too gushing or soppy, but I couldn’t have done this without Kev. I couldn’t have done this with anyone else.’

She went on to share her ideas about welcoming a sibling for Minnie: ‘You’re so tired and sometimes you really feel like you’re in the trenches, it’s a haze and you’re just trying to figure it all out.

‘I think I would love to have more babies. But I said to Kev the other day, “Don’t you want to do this again?”. And he went, “Are you nuts? You’re over-tired!”.

‘I don’t know how people have four children. I’ve had one and am completely failing.’
