Speaking to HELLO! magazine, Alison admitted she feared becoming a mother when she fell pregnant with Aiden.

She told the publication: “I was so nervous about becoming a mum in the beginning, and I look back and think, ‘What was I nervous about?’ He has enriched my life in ways I never even imagined.”

In addition, Alison shared: “My one wish would be that I’d had more children. I wish I’d had another three back then.
