And Kellie has announced she is expecting her third “miracle” child after undergoing IVF.
The actress spoke to OK! Magazine about her decision to try for a third child.
She said: “It has nothing to do with the boys not being enough – they absolutely are. It’s just I never felt like I was done.
“I always had an itch, a desire to have more. My husband and I went round in circles for a couple of years deciding whether or not to just go for the third.
“I have a demanding full-time job and the reality of having a baby and a toddler within all of that is overwhelming, and we weren’t quite ready.”

Youngest son Gene had some complications after birth, and was hooked up to a ventilator after he contracted bronchiolitis, a respiratory tract infection.
Kellie revealed to OK! magazine; “He had a nasty cough but the doctor assured me he’d be fine. Then suddenly he went downhill so we rushed him to hospital.
“He had to spend a few nights in hospital on oxygen but he’s home now and on the road to recovery.”
