Christine McGuinness told fans she was “overwhelmed” to take her three children to school this morning.

The Top Gear host’s wife, Paddy McGuinness, 34, has autism, and so are twins Leo, Penelope, eight, and daughter Felicity, five.

Christine has worked tirelessly to raise awareness of the condition and has now shared another touching story.

Taking to Instagram to share a photo of her children in school uniforms, she said: “Something happened this morning, I can’t explain it, a feeling filled with love, happiness happiness, strength, and purpose just following these three I was in tears but felt so happy.

“Honestly, I was terrified today. I had a 3 hour school meeting today to discuss children’s EHCPs (education, health and care planning).







Christine said she was “very proud to be their mummy”.

“For me, sometimes I find long meetings quite difficult and I get burned out, exhausted from talking and concentrating for too long.
But when I walk behind them, listening to them talk together about the day ahead, I feel so proud and blessed. ”

The Games star explains how meetings are important to her children’s growth and independence, and advises parents in similar situations to “fight” for their children’s rights.

“We still have a long way to go but these three schools are going strong. I’m so grateful to have a school that really understands and supports the kids,” she said.

While another wrote: “I’m Autistic too so I’m routing you today, it’s tough but you are definitely your child’s best advocate.”

Christine was diagnosed with autism last year after she claimed her husband Paddy knew.

Writing in her book A Beautiful Nightmare, she said: “I was confirmed to have autism. It was strange, but I noticed that there were little hints throughout my life that I was autistic and like like my kids more than I can imagine..

“My problems with food, my social struggles, the way I find it hard to make friends and stay focused, and my indecision. The way I go through life reminds me of it. How is my eldest daughter Penelope.

“Now it all makes sense. And I’m not completely surprised, I still feel emotional accepting, but it’s also a relief.”

Paddy and Christine have made a documentary about autism for the BBC entitled Our Family and Autism.

The pair were praised for shedding light on a condition that is believed to affect around 700,000 people in the UK.
