Holby City actress and Celebrity Masterchef contestant Tina Hobley is mum to Isabella, 13, Olivia, four, and Orson, two. She talks to us about life with a teenager, the differences in parenting girls and boys, and why baby number four is absolutely not on the cards...
How is life with a teenage girl in the house?
Urgh! That's one way to put it. I felt like I lost her for two years in the build up, but I have her back now.
Of course I remember being a teenage girl, but everything is so different now with new, modern pressures. Isabella is in go-slow mode, and I feel like I'm always rushing her to get up, do her homework...everything!
There's a nine year gap between Isabella and Olivia, and then two years between her and Orson. Do they all get on?
Fabulously. Isabella is great with the little ones. She does moan at me when they go into her room and tinker with everything though. Having number three definitely changed things though - suddenly everything went up a gear!
Have you found many differences between raising the girls and Orson?
Absolutely. Before Orson our house was all pink and fluffy with nail varnish. He came out ready for action. Play fighting! Pirates! Rough and tumble! When I was pregnant with Orson I really thought he would be another girl, and I think my life would have been quieter for it! But I wouldn't have it any other way.
Now Isabella is a teenager, do you worry about the pressures put on young girls?
I do. We are incredibly lucky that she attends a fantastic school, and we have a very happy home life. My door is always open, we are very close, and I like to think we can talk about anything.
We're also a foodie house. She eats well, and knows how to look after herself. She's a runner so has a healthy balance of eating well, enjoying food, and keeping fit.
What are your thoughts on the advice from David Cameron's advisor about snooping on teenagers' emails and internet habits?
I don't pry or snoop on her texts and emails because I don't have to. We are close, I trust that she tells me everything, and she trusts me. It's all about a balance, which I'm happy to say we have.
She came back from a friend's house the other day and said how calm and relaxing it was.
But they don't have toddlers in the house! I like to think I'm open, honest and loving.
Would you like another baby or is your family complete?
Absolutely not! I've given back enough to the population with my three. We're very happy, but no more for us.
