Children of Paddy and Christine McGuinness are unaware of their parents’ separation

Christine McGuiness, who split from her husband Paddy McGuiness in July 2020, has revealed that she has shielded their three children from the news. The couple share twins Penelope and Leo, nine, and Felicity, six, all of whom have autism. Christine, who has now moved on to a BBC documentary about her own autism diagnosis, said she feels blessed to see the children growing up in a “happy and loving home” and wants things to continue that way. The couple, who still live together, have said that co-parenting in separate homes is something they are going to struggle with.
