Colette Fitzpatrick has opened up about her marriage struggles, saying having kids can drive a couple apart.

The tv personality admitted children can be a huge strain on a relationship which can test and eventually break down the bond.

“I laugh at the notion when people are having relationship difficulties and they think a baby will solve it, there is nothing that will drive you further apart than a baby I can tell you because it is a stressful situation”, she told RSVP Magazine.

While she feels “blessed” to be mum to her kids Milo and Olivia, she now says motherhood was not always in her sights;

“I never has this huge longing to have a child, you hear other women saying from their early 20’s they wanted to have a baby but I never had that.”
