Rochelle Humes has said she and her husband Marvin are 'winging it' after their children's summer off of school already kicked off. They also revealed their plans to involve their children in designing their dream house after revealing they're starting from scratch to build their family abode.

The couple - who are parents to Alaia-Mai, 11, Valentina, seven, and three-year-old Blake - have moved six times during their relationship but they are now building what they hope will be their "forever home" and all the members of the household will have a say in the layout of the property.

Speaking to HELLO! Marvin said: "We're doing a whole house! We're building a house! It's the first time we've done it. In the 12 years we've been together we've moved home six times! This is our first big, big project. We've renovated a house before but this is the first time doing it from scratch, but this is the last one I promise you...."

"It's exciting, something we've never done before. Great for the kids to get involved in helping us design stuff, so it's all good!" Although they are excited about their plans, the couple have no idea how long it will take to finish the house but they plan to just go with the flow.

Rochelle said: "We just need to gain a lot of patience because there are so many moving parts. People keep asking me, 'How long is it going to be?' We don't have an idea. It bothers everyone else, we're like, 'We're just going with it!' We'll have a better update [next year]. Hopefully, we'll have a roof by then!"

In the coming months, Marvin and Rochelle also hope to travel around the UK with their brood to enjoy some "staycays" in the sunshine. The former Saturdays singer said: "I'm planning to wing it through until September and we can open the school gates again. Our kids seem to have longer than they've ever had before!"

"We might do a couple of weeks somewhere. We have a couple of staycays planned. We have a couple's trip planned but we have staycays and everyone escapes the UK when it's the best it's going to be! They have such a long break that I want to get around the UK a bit. We have an appreciation since COVID. We're going to do a bit of camping, not quite like the jungle but similar sort of vibes."

It comes after Rochelle and Marvin were defended by fans earlier this year when they shared some holiday snaps after returning home from their month-long break. After Marvin's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here stint in Australia back in mid-November, he and Rochelle headed straight for Dubai where they were later joined by their children.

After some time in the UAE, the family-of-five headed over to the Maldives where they welcomed in the New Year and enjoyed the life of luxury for a bit longer before returning home for work and school. But they did get some residence from sharing all about their lavish break.

Meanwhile, Rochelle said her 'heart had burst' as she shared the truth about her husband as she celebrated him on Father's Day. The This Morning star was seen sharing an emotional tribute to the JLS star as she marked the occasion last month. Taking to Instagram at the time, she posted a snap of Marvin on her Story from when their son Blake, now three, was born. The then newborn could be seen lying on his dad's chest with his older sisters, Alaia-Mai and Valentina, cuddling up on either side of the boys.

Alongside the adorable black and white snap, the mum-of-three wrote: "Happy Father's Day to the best to ever do it..." Rochelle then followed up the post with a sweet snap of Marvin and Blake sharing a moment during her and her husband's vowel renewal in 2022 after 10 years of marriage.

In the photo, singer and DJ Marvin, 39, could be seen planting a kiss on his son on a red carpet which covered the aisle as they sported matching black suits with red rose button holes. Our little man has the greatest role model in the WORLD..." Rochelle, 35, gushed. "He already shows your caring, gentle qualities and that makes my heart burst. He really is learning from the best," she added with a face holding back tears emoji.
