Frankie Bridge is pleased the two sons she shares with husband Wayne Bridge don't know their parents are famous.

While their mother may be a member of pop group The Saturdays and their father a former professional footballer, Parker, six, and four-year-old Carter are none the wiser when it comes to their parents’ careers according to Frankie.

She told The Mirror: "I’ve asked them, ‘What do Mummy and Daddy do?’ and they just say, ‘Work’. They don’t really have a clue and I think that’s quite nice.

“They know we’re on telly sometimes, but they don’t sit and watch us. I’ll say, ‘Daddy’s on TV today’, and they’ll say, ‘Oh, OK’, and then it’s back to their iPads.”

The 31-year-old went on to say that her offspring "don't really do" after-school activities and have little interest in football although did divulge they are more musically inclined.

In addition to the two boys he has with Frankie, 39-year-old Wayne also has son Jaydon Bridge, 13, from a previous relationship with French model Vanessa Perroncel.

Frankie released her memoir Open: Why Asking For Help Can Save Your Life earlier this year where she touched upon the mental health battles that plagued her for years.

The mother-of-two has also recently opened up on how her struggles came to a head at the heigh of her fame as part of The Saturdays in 2011 when she filmed a music video on the evening before she was checked in to a psychiatric hospital.

She told Radio 1 Newsbeat: "I'd reached a point where I couldn't cope with everyday life. I was constantly crying and telling my partner that I didn't really want to be here anymore."

Frankie sought help following the two-day shoot after she and her manager decided she would film the video which had already been paid for.

The Saturdays, which was made up of Frankie, Rochelle Humes, Mollie King, Vanessa White and Una Healy, went on an indefinite hiatus in 2014.
