Christine McGuinness is “trying” to carve out her own career after splitting from her TV presenter husband Paddy McGuinness.
The 35-year-old model, who split from Paddy, 50, in 2022 after 11 years of marriage, said her main focus was supporting her three children, seven-year-old Felicity and twins Leo and Penelope, 10. All were diagnosed with autism.
She told The Mirror: “My main focus for 2024 will be my children, they are always my main focus.”
“Then work, work for myself and try to build a career for myself so that I can always take care of my children and give them a future that they want and support them and their needs for as long as possible.” Right there I am right now.
“I want to try to be more present, which I do very well with my children.” When I'm with the children, I'm most authentic and just myself. “I'm just at home with the children.”

Christine, who has launched a new wellness brand called Lifestyle, said she gets easily distracted outside of her personal life and one of her goals is to be more “present.”
The model also shared how she takes care of her children's well-being through yoga and mindfulness.
It came after Christine was reportedly “devastated” after finding out her ex-husband Paddy was filming a “mockumentary about their divorce”.
According to The Sun, a friend close to Christine revealed that she found out about Paddy's plan after reading about it online.
They told the publication: “Christine is upset that her divorce will be the subject of jokes.”
The source continued: “She is completely heartbroken over the divorce and we are really worried about her.”
“Paddy didn’t tell her about the pilot. “The fact that she had to find out online like everyone else that he did this broke her even more.”

News of the mockumentary comes after Christine revealed to Web that she is now having more meltdowns than ever and is ready to show her authentic self after hiding behind a smile.
She opened up about how much she's been struggling lately, admitting that it's “exhausting to act like she's fine.”
Christine revealed that there are still days where she has to cancel plans because she's so burned out.
Christine, who has autism and ADHD, lives a busy life as she juggles the workload of being a mother, performing concerts, making television appearances and launching her own line of lifestyle products.
When asked how she manages her seemingly endless list of responsibilities, Christine told Web: “I don't, and that's quite honest. “I don't manage it as well as what I present as if I can manage it . I still have breakdowns. I'm probably having more nervous breakdowns than ever before.'
She continued: “There are still days where I cancel plans because I'm burnt out.” “My main resolution for this year is to plan better and make sure I plan things in a way that allows me in between have free.”
