Christine McGuinness ‘not allowed’ to show pictures of kids following split from Paddy McGuinness
| Last updated
Paddy McGuinness' ex-wife, Christine McGuinness, has said that she's 'not allowed' to show pictures of her children online.
Christine and Paddy share three children, older twins Leo and Penelope, and their youngest, Felicity, all of whom have autism.
They announced their split in July 2022 after 11 years of marriage, saying at the time that they'd made the decision 'a while ago' but that they planned to continue 'moving forward as the best parents' they could be and 'live happily in our family home together'.
Below a very glamorous pic of the model in gymwear posted on Tuesday (15 August), she wrote in caption: "Just minding my own business, wishing others could do the same.
"I’m probably in Rotterdam right now who knows, this could be anywhere!"
While most followers left positive comments, one said: "I used to like the real family pics with you children's antics. You don't post them anymore. I hope you are well. Unfollow."
And Christine responded, saying: "I am not allowed to show my children, it’s not my choice."
LADbible have reached out to Paddy's representatives for comment.
Back in March, Christine had said that living with her ex-husband 'really works' despite their split.
Speaking with the Mirror, Christine opened up about their relationship, explaining that she and Paddy still talk 'an awful lot' and that she knows she can rely on him.
"I was with Patrick from when I was 19 years old so for 15 years I’ve pretty much grown up with them and obviously, he's been in the industry for a long time," she said.
"We are very close, we’re family no matter what. It’s amazing he’s there if and when I need him and the same the other way around.
"If he needed any advice from me, I'm not really sure what I can advise him on, maybe stuff with the children, but he could always ask me. If I got lost on the motorway he’d be the first person I’d call."
Christine went on to address their split, and confirmed that while it may change in the future, for now their living arrangement remains the same.
"It is what it is but we are we are family, we are still living together. It's not a long term plan but for now, that really works," she said.
The mum-of-three went on to describe how she and Paddy do their best to give each other space by working around one another, explaining: "I think especially whilst we're both so busy, we don't want to change anything at home.
"We just keep it on a rota so that he's at home when I'm away and when he’s away I’m at home and that works for us."
