Kimberley Walsh is resigned to having no time for herself.
The former Girls Aloud singer – who has Bobby, seven, Cole, five, and Nate, nine months, with her husband Justin Scott – “tries” to have time alone but is always ready for a her children come to join her and she accepts the fact that this is part of the stage of life in which she currently finds herself.
She said: “I don’t really have a lot of time for myself. I’m trying.
“Sometimes I’m like, ‘I just want to go take a bath by myself.’ Sure, one of them will break in and get in the bath with me, but that’s just life with young kids and I really wouldn’t change a thing.
“I don’t think there will be as many years as they want to get in the bath with me.
“Sometimes I lock the door, put on some music and maybe even drink a glass of wine.
“It’s good to have that time to myself, but I think you also know when you’re at that point in your life when it’s not really about you and that’s good. It’s going to come back. »

The 40-year-old star may not spend much time alone, but she and Justin can enjoy each other’s company at night because the kids go to bed early – but Kimberley knows that won’t last forever either .
She told Heat magazine: “We like to watch things on TV together – ‘Trigger Point’, ‘Ozark’, ‘Snowpiercer’… It’s kind of nice to get away for an hour or two.
“The thing is, the kids are still young enough that we have the evening to ourselves. We won’t be having that anytime soon.”
On the rare occasions when the couple do go out together, they’ve learned that it’s not worth drinking a lot because of the inevitable early morning that follows.
Kimberley said: “It’s tough. You know there’s a limit to what it’s worth drinking because no matter what, one of the kids will be up early.
“Justin’s not an early riser, so inevitably they’re going to abandon Dad and I’m going to be woken up first.”
“But then, it’s good for when they wake up at night.”
