Myleene Klass: Being A Mummy Is My Real Job


Myleene Klass has told a magazine that she considers her role as a full-time mum her 'real work' and that stay-at-home mothers are 'unsung heroes'.

The mum-of-two told Prima Baby & Pregnancy magazine that looking after her two daughters - Ava, four, and newborn Hero - was 'relentless':

'If I'm completely honest, I find staying at home the real work. Not only is it relentless, but also a thankless task when you've done three loads of laundry, cleaned the kitchen surface a gazillion times, made the beds, and had your partner say, 'Glad you're having a day off'. Stay-at-home mums are the unsung heroes of the world. Fact!'

Myleene also revealed that exhaustion from night feeds means she had not got an exercise regime, and that enjoying her youngsters was currently more important than weight loss: 'I'm still spinning with tiredness from the night feeds. I don't have an exercise routine at the moment, namely because I'm allergic to the gym.

'I have decided not to be so hard on myself and just enjoy my babies and my chocolate buttons!'

Hmm, all a bit different to Myleene's recent comments about why she had RETURNED to work just ten weeks' after Hero's birth...

Do you agree with Myleene? Or is her brand of 'stay at home mumness' slightly different to everyone else's? (as in, she goes out to work...)
