When the twins were 18 months old Christine decided to undergo a boob job and increase her bust size from a 32D to a 32E.

Following the twins' birth Christine worked hard to regain her pre-pregnancy figure, but said that having children had made her realise she was "too skinny" and she started to try and build muscle in the gym.

Christine shared her gym journey with her fans, as she built envy-inducing abs and a toned frame.

In 2016 she announced she was pregnant again and charted how her body was changing on Instagram.

Christine again blossomed and glowed as her bump grew bigger.

Following the birth of daughter Felicity Christine was vocal about not rushing to lose her baby weight.

She said: "I have lost a lot of muscle tone, I have cellulite, loose skin and my body is nothing like it used to be. But I have 3 amazing children!. They're my absolute world, my happiness. The reason I love, live and laugh every day.
