Rochelle Humes has opened up about the pressures of living in the spotlight as a businesswoman and mother of three children.

Saturdays singer Rochelle revealed how she finds balance keeping her marriage alive while working closely with her husband Marvin.

The former popstars turned presenters still make time for Friday date nights while saving Sundays for a family roast with their three children Alaia-Mai, Valentina and Blake.

“Kids come along and they throw a whole curve ball into that so it’s nice to always make sure you have still got that time for you both to pretend it was 12 years ago,” she told JS Health Vitamins via Instagram live.

Currently facing an intense period at work, Rochelle admitted having trouble sleeping which she combats in several ways.

When things get tough, the celeb said her go-to remedy is an evening soak in the bath and chats on the phone with friends about “irrelevant nonsense.”

She also advocated for switching off from social media when it gets “too much”.

“I have boundaries. If we have dinner time and we are sat with the kids, our phones are not with us. It is those little things,” Rochelle said.

“In the evening when the kids have gone to bed, I put the water on and I run myself a nice bath and I have a soak and that is all the switch off I need.

“Friday is our date night. Saturday, the kids have horse riding and then Sunday is our family day.

“I cook a roast dinner and we just have a cosy day with us and our friends.”

Rochelle told of her love for Pilates as a way to unwind and focus on the present, which she works into her routine.

“I have that hour and I think of nothing else but what I’m doing in the moment,” she said.

“There is not another form of exercise that does that for me.”

She is also partial to a tequila with fresh lime and soda on the weekend.

Like many parents, Rochelle admitted her house sometimes feels “chaotic” dipping in and out of busy spells.

Now is a particularly busy time for the TV presenter who works with her hubby Marvin.

“At the minute, it is really quite intense. Coming out of the pandemic, things that we had to put off are now all back on. It’s all kicked off at once,” she added.

“The key is not to take it all home with you. We leave work at the door and also home at the door. I find it easier because I already have his back, he has my back and we have each other’s best interests.”

Rochelle insists it is all about balance.

“Monday to Friday, I am quite routine. I look after myself, I work out. On the weekend, I have fun. I will eat the cake if I want the cake, I will live my best life.”

After finishing the school run and putting her children to bed at 7.30pm, Rochelle said “it’s my time” and pampers herself with her skin care regime, supplements and face wash before bed.

She told of her love for JSHealth products which has helped her with her postpartum hair loss, hormonal breakouts and trouble sleeping.
