The reality TV personality previously spoke on how her relationship with Ryna has changed since she became a mother, she told The Sun: “Life is different now – there’s more communication but less spontaneity.
“It’s a different dynamic, but it’s just as special, if not more so. We’ve become a really good team. But it’s hard [to make time for each other]. I still don’t think we’ve got that balance perfect, but we work on it.
“On our first night out after Roman was born, we just sat there going: ‘What the hell have we got to talk about?’ because we both were living through lockdown and our whole life was Roman, so we just started talking about him. When we had finished, we went: ‘What do we talk about now?’”
