  • Giovanna Fletcher has revealed that she definitely sees more children in her future with husband Tom.

    The author and her husband Tom, who found fame in pop group McFly, are already parents to two sons. However, the happy couple would love to hear the pitter patter of tiny feet again – just maybe when their work schedules aren’t quite so hectic!

    ‘We’ve always said that we would have more than two. When? Who knows,’ Giovanna told Good To Know.

    ‘Work is busy but I think it’s one of those things that you can’t really plan for.’

    Giovanna gave birth to the pair’s oldest son Buzz in 2014 and his younger brother Buddy followed in 2016.

    The 33-year-old also opened up about the emotional transition she went through when she became a mum of two, admitting that she initially questioned whether it’d be possible to care about her second child in the same way she did her first.

    Giovanna soon realised her concerns were unnecessary as she watched the relationship between her boys blossom.

    ‘Your heart just grows. And then it grows again and again and you love your first child more than you ever thought you could when you see them giving love to the second child,’ she gushed during our interview.

    ‘I mean obviously part of parenting is refereeing but it’s amazing seeing those moments where they are playing together, looking after each other and caring for each other.’

    My heart. ❤️ Xx

    Even though she says her household is far more ‘manic’ with two little ones charging around, Giovanna believes she’s become more chilled out since becoming a mother as she’s learnt not to dwell on trivial matters.

    Giovanna teamed up with Barclaycard to launch the ‘Barclaycard 31 day challenge’ to prove it’s easier than you might think to start something new.

    ‘You realise that the things that you would stress about before don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things. It’s taught me how to chill out which is ironic most people wouldn’t say that parenting is relaxing,’ she adds.

    ‘I spent a lot of time before worrying about friendships and staying in touch with people that probably just didn’t want to be my friend any more. Motherhood has taught me to get rid of all of that. I worry less about the things that are not important and more about the things that are.’
