Christine McGuinness has shared a family update with fans regarding her children, almost two years on from announcing her split from ex-husband Paddy. The model and TV personality has jetted off again having previously been away with her mum, Joanne, before taking a solo trip for work.

The 36-year-old is now soaking up the sun on a large family holiday with her three children who she shares with her ex Paddy, 10-year-old twins Penelope and Leo and seven-year-old Felicity, each of whom along with Christine have autism.

Taking to her Instagram earlier in the week, the mum-of-three shared a post with her 743,000 followers where she said: "I read a quote recently that said ‘If we’re lucky, we get 16-18 summers with our children’ after that they’re adults, doing their own thing, away with friends, college, or maybe not wanting to chill with mummy no more.

She then continued: "I think (and hope) I’ll be having many more with mine, I still enjoy a holiday with my mum but just if they do become more independent when they’re older.. I’m making the most of every minute, I’d choose my babies every time."

Now on Sunday (June 2), the former Real Housewives of Cheshire star has told fans how well her children have been doing whilst they spend time away on their 'biggest family holiday ever'.

Sharing some stunning snaps from her holiday, Christine wrote: "Half term happiness. If you have followed our family journey you will know holidays didn’t come easy for us, I still can’t believe this is something we do now (with lots of prep, visuals, patience and a few meltdowns!).

"We have just had our biggest family holiday ever, with other friends, extended family and other children. I was so worried about this trip, we usually keep it very small and quiet. I thought my children might get overwhelmed with everyone but honestly they were amazing.

"And all the extra eyes, hands and ears for mummy was amazing! Happy and proud, my little superstars exceeding expectations once again. With love and support, always believe anything is possible."

Responding to the post, one fan said: "As per your last slide Christine.. nobody would/should ever expect you to prioritise any differently. you goddess!!!." as another said: "Awww this made me cry!! I’m proud for you!."

A third wrote: "You are so inspiring. And you look absolutely beautiful," as a fourth said: "So pleased that you all are having such a lovely time! Fully deserved."

Another follower of Christine's wrote: "While ultimately the children were amazing, it's most definitely down to the prep, prompts & explaining from you weeks leading up, daily repeating, etc. You are amazing C - keep using your platform & voice spreading the awareness of what it's like for us riding the rainbow train with our little rainbow gang."
