‘My greatest job I’ll ever do’ Holly Willoughby opens up about ‘pausing’ work for the sake of her kids

Holly Willoughby has admitted that she’s not looking to take on any more work at this time, because she wants her focus to be on her children instead.

The 36-year-old mum-of-three made the revelation in an interview with The Sun, where she confessed that being a parent is the, ‘greatest job I’ll ever do’ and therefore being a mum to her kids is going to be her, ‘main focus over the next few years.’

‘My main focus over the next few years is churning out three very grounded, normal, happy, content children, teenagers and adults, eventually.’ she added.

Holly Willoughby is mum to three children with her husband Dan, Harry, 8, Belle, 6, and her youngest son Chester who is 3. She recently posted a rare snap of Chester playing by the pool with her on holiday.

However, proving that this really was just a joke, Holly confirmed in September last year in a Facebook Live interview that she won’t be having any more children, despite the fact that she ‘loved being pregnant.’

‘No more babies’ she stated. ‘But I don’t want to say that because it really upsets me. You know, I already miss all of that, I loved being pregnant, I loved giving birth.’
