Christine McGuinness Reveals Her 10-Year Anorexia Battle Left Her Struggling To Conceive For Years!

Christine McGuinness opens up about the moment she thought she had miscarried her twins after an anorexia battle as a child left her struggling to conceive for four years. The Real Housewives of Cheshire star said that she feared she had lost her babies when she started bleeding heavily at three months.

"There's one part, I'll never ever forget. Erm, I still get emotional thinking about it," Christine revealed during an appearance on Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast by Giovanna Fletcher, according to Manchester Evening News. "I thought I lost the twins and I think just after trying for so long, the thought of losing them, it broke my heart. Thank god they were absolutely fine."

"You can- You can bleed through your pregnancy but the thought of losing them, I'd already fallen in love with them. These were babies to me and for people that that does happen to, god I can't imagine how that must be."

Christine revealed she struggled for four years to get pregnant. The wife of TV host Paddy McGuinness said that it took her a while to conceive after she stopped ovulating and having periods following a 10-year eating disorder she battled as a child.

"I had anorexia for over 10 years as a child, all through my teenage years, [and was getting better] when I met my husband aged 19, 20," she explained. "It was that strive and I just really wanted to be a mum that made me get over that.

"When I went to see a doctor the reason I wasn't ovulating or having my periods was down to having an eating disorder. That made me get better but it took four years for everything to regulate.

"You're tracking your chart and your temperature. My husband works away a lot so we had to make the most of our time together."

When she did finally discover the happy news, Christine said that she took 20 tests before she could accept she had actually fell pregnant.

Christine and Paddy are parents of five-year-old twins Leo and Penelope and two-year-old Felicity. The couple has been vocal that their three children have autism.
