Christine explained: “He’s been a great little baby, slipped into the family just seamlessly. He’s been a gorgeous little addition.”

The mum-of-two went on to talk about how her daughter Patricia is with her baby brother.

She added: “If she hears a little moan, she’ll start singing little songs to him. But no she’s been really good actually. She’s a very nice big sister so far but it’s early days.”
