Judi Love’s heartwarming gesture to her children’s grandparents: ‘It’s so important’

The TV star has two kids with her ex

| Updated:

The gorgeous Judi Love appears on Catchpoint on BBC One tonight (May 7) – and two people who’ll surely be watching are her much-loved children.

The Loose Women star – who has a son, 12, and daughter, 17 – raises her children as a single mum.

And she often speaks out about their struggles while rarely saying much about her ex.

However, in a moving 2019 Facebook video about kids’ relationships with their dads, Judi did reveal that she encourages her ex’s parents to be involved in their kids’ lives.

She admitted grandparents are vital when it comes to them forming a sense of identity.

The star, who is not married and doesn’t often say too much about her personal life, said: “Grandparents are so important in their grandchildren’s lives. They teach them things that we as parents can’t.”

She added: “We are breaking down our family wealth… I mean family wealth in the sense of legacy, where you come from, who you are.”

Judi said that identity is “so important”.

We are breaking down our family wealth… I mean family wealth in the sense of legacy. Where you come from, who you are.

“Trust me guys, as you get older, if you are not grown with a secure identity it really brings some challenges to you as an adult,” she said frankly.

The TV star went on: “I am saying this to you from a place of love.

“Because I am a single parent and I have to deal with this daily.”

Judi, 41, said that she encouraged her children’s grandparents to be a part of their lives “because it is so important”.
