Christine McGuinness offers heartwarming family Christmas update as ‘progress’ is made

Christine McGuinness offered a heartwarming family update over Christmas as she revealed ‘progress’ had been made.

Before the big day, The Real Housewives of Cheshire star admitted that ‘everything is just all a bit much’ for her in an online rant.

Christine, 33, took to Instagram while in the gym to let off steam about feeling having not ‘organised Christmas.’

But the mum-of-three, who recently spoke about being diagnosed with Autism, has since shared an update about her Christmas with her children and husband Paddy McGuinness.

Sharing a photo of the couple’s children – twins Leo and Penelope, eight, and five-year-old Felicity – all in matching pajamas and playing with their new toys, Christine wrote on Instagram: “I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

“We had a surprisingly calm day!”

She continued: “Leo opened his presents slowly (he still has some unopened and that’s ok). Penelope wanted to tidy everything away at 9am (so did mummy) and then spent most of the day in her room and that’s fine.

“Felicity got quite overstimulated and needed some afternoon quiet time (like daddy). So I’d say it went well!”

Christine also shared a picture of their Chrismas dinner after sharing last year that the children, who also have Autism, had tucked into chicken nuggets and chips for their festive lunch.

“Big improvements from their usual chicken nuggets and chips,” she said. “They didn’t eat everything on the plate but the fact it was allowed on the plate is progress, and they tried.

“Happy kids, happy mummy, happy Christmas.”

Christine said progress was made with the children’s dinner

Christine and Paddy have inspired fans with their journey after their three children were all diagnosed with autism.

Earlier this month Top Gear presenter Paddy and his model wife left viewers in tears with their emotional documentary Our Family and Autism, which aired on BBC One.

Last week, Bolton-born Paddy shared another family milestone as they had a meal out at a cafe, something which they never thought would be possible.
