Holly Willoughby is one of the UK’s most in-demand TV presenters – but that doesn’t mean she’s not keen to slow things down a bit in her career.
If she’s not presenting This Morning with TV husband Phillip Schofield, she’s joking around with Keith Lemon as a host on Celebrity Juice. And most recently, she’s taken on her old role as presenter of ITV’s Dancing On Ice, alongside silver fox Phil.
And if that wasn’t enough, the glamorous star is also an ambassador for Garnier UK and Diet Coke.
But while she’s arguably at the peak of her career, Holly has confessed that she’s keen not to take on any more work comittments, in order to spend more time with her children.
Speaking to The Sun, she shared, “I don’t really want to do more, I just want to pause everything and keep everything as is.
“Work is in a really lovely place and I’m really happy with This Morning.”
But, Holly confessed that despite her current career success, she sees bringing up her children Belle, 6, Harry, 8, and Chester, 3, as her main job for the next few years.
“My biggest challenge over the next few years will be parenting my children as they get older. When they’re babies you’re constantly thinking about making sure they’re feeding right, that they get to those milestones, that they get to school.
“And then suddenly, as they get older, it’s their characters that are starting to build. And I realise more than ever the weight of responsibility of making sure they turn out to be really good, kind human beings.”
Confessing that she won’t be taking on many more showbiz commitments, Holly revealed that her and husband Dan’s priority over the next few years is to make sure her children grow up to be well-rounded individuals.
“My main focus over the next few years is churning out three very grounded, normal, happy, content children, teenagers and adults, eventually.
“That’s my greatest job I’ll ever do.” Aww!
Holly’s confession comes as she posted an adorable, rare snap of her daughter Belle to her Instagram page. The TV star was clearly feeling reflective about her baby girl, as she reminisced on her time being pregnant with the 6-year-old. She was pregnant with her only daughter whilst presenting Dancing On Ice last time around.
The 36-year-old shared a sweet snap of little Belle staring admiringly at the Dancing On Ice rink. She shared the pic alongside the adorable caption, ‘6 years ago she was ringside in my belly… now look at her… @dancingonice ’
It looks like Holly is keen to spend as much quality time with her littl’uns as possible at the moment.
