Paddy McGuinness pens sweet note to wife before rare night out together

The hubby and wife normally have their hands full with their three children.

Paddy McGuinness went all soft as he got ready for his big night out on Friday night.

The comedian and his stunning wife Christine McGuinness got dressed up to the nines for an evening at the Variety GB awards where he was presented with the Legends of Industry gong.

But Paddy’s true legend is his other half.

The couple have four-year-old twins Leo and Penelope, who Christine recently revealed are autistic.

They also have one-year-old daughter Felicity.

Paddy appeared on This Morning recently and spoke about how his twins have just started school.

Talking to hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, the 44-year-old said: “They started school last week, they just immersed themselves in it. It’s more emotional for the kids, I’ve got my life back but I don’t want to lose them.”

He sweetly called them his “little sausages” and added: “Leo and Penelope my eldest two are fantastic and they always do stuff like that, catch me off guard like that.

“Being a parent, it’s a tough job, you do get emotional about things. And tiredness. I’m always tired!”

Proud mum Christine couldn’t wait to share a photo of their children in their brand new school uniforms.

The fitness fanatic, 29, wrote: “I love that they will always have each other. #Twins #FirstDayOfSchool I’m so immensely proud.. and emotional.”

Christine revealed that she always wanted a huge family but heartbreakingly she has resigned herself to the fact that she and Paddy won’t be having any more due to their children’s condition.

“We really wanted a big family,” the model told The Mirror. “We wanted eight children.

“We were happy to keep going. As soon as I got pregnant, I knew that was my life and that was what I wanted. I wanted to be a mum and have a really big family.

“[But] we’ve had to reconsider plans because the twins need us, and we’re stretched as it is. It wouldn’t be fair to have more.”

It was on their fourth birthday, on 2 July, that Christine first announced that Penelope and Leo were suffering with autism.

She posted a beautiful poem on Instagram, in which she spoke of “the meltdowns, the routines and all the planning ahead.”

And appearing on This Morning, the blonde mum revealed that she was now concerned her younger daughter Felicity may also have the condition.

She explained: “I am looking for little things. If she does have autism, we’ll get her the help she needs.

“She does things like standing on her tippy toes, and she likes dry food.

“But she is brand-new, so I don’t want to put too much pressure on it.”

Even if Felicity is diagnosed with autism, Christine insists that the experience of looking after her twins has equipped her with all the tools she needs.

“It’s OK,” she told The Mirror. “Because she’s got the right mum for the job.”
