In a discussion about feeling mum guilt after a second baby, Penny revealed she tried her best to ensure her sons and husband Rod received equal attention.

She spilled: “I remember Alastair, he was about five when we discovered that finally after three IVF’s I was pregnant with Aidan, he was praying for a boy and it was, of course.

“So, I just made sure that right from the beginning he was very much involved.

“He would feed Aiden and teach him how to play football, so he was as part of his life.

“But yeah, there was that kind of guilt sharing my time around including my third boy, my husband,” she laughed.

Penny’s co-panellist Nadia Sawalha chimed in: “Sometimes it’s a bit easier when they’re a bit older,” as she went on to discuss her own experience.

It’s not the first time Rod’s wife has opened up about trying to split her time and love equally in their household.

Ahead of their first born’s birth, Penny admitted that Rod had asked her not to “neglect” him when the baby was born.

The mother-of-two made the admission in a discussion on the show about couples having a “baby contract” ahead of becoming parents.

Sharing her story, she spilled: “We didn’t have a contract, but having had the experience he has had in the past with other children and mothers, he brought some wise words to the hospital that day, along with our paediatrician.

“While I was pregnant, Rod said to me, ‘Darling, I have had this experience and there’s one thing I am worried about and that’s being pushed out of the picture’.

“‘I understand the baby needs you and you’ll be breastfeeding, but please don’t neglect me’.”

Recalling her reaction, she added: “And I said, ‘I won’t darling’, and of course when the baby comes along and you have baby brain and you’re breastfeeding it’s difficult.”

Penny added she made “a very conscious effort” for her husband not to feel left out.

“He said one golden rule, no baby in the bed, and I thought that was fair enough, families are about compromise,” she continued.

Rod’s wife went on to shock her co-stars by revealing she also went out for dinner just hours after she had given birth.

“I had to sit one cheek on the chair and the rest off, because of the pain,” she spilled.

Penny added she then received a phone call from her mum, who said she had to return to the hospital to breastfeed.

Maggie May hitmaker Rod also has six other children from previous relationships.
