Maia moved to London to be with Johnny when she became pregnant. Since the birth of their baby boy Tom, they have gone through many changes, both as parents and as a co-habitting couple. She told VIP that it’s been a big adjustment in their relationship living together because for the last seven years they were only able to see each other at the weekend.

“Now that we live together, we just hate each other! ” she laughed. “We had seven years together with every weekend being like a mini holiday, whereas now, no one has cleaned up after breakfast, the dishwasher is broken, the toilet is blocked…”

Despite the big changes however, Maia says that they still find time for humour in their relationship, but it’s not a barrel of laughs all the time. “We get on really well and humour is a really important part of our relationship, and always has been, and hopefully always will be, but we’re realistic-it’s not a laugh a minute.”

Naturally, having a baby changes things in a relationship, but again this famous couple learns to find the funny side among the stress, and we commend them for that. “When you’re knackered, and covered in baby sick, the last thing you need is a joke..well, actually, that’s when you probably need humour most!” Hear, hear!
