Real Housewives Of Cheshire star Tanya Bardsley has revealed that before she had a tummy tuck, her husband used to call her belly a ‘mother’s bag’.
The mother of four has a 20-year-old daughter, Gabriella, from a previous relationship.
She also shares sons Rocco, 13, Renz, 9, and five-year-old Ralphi with footballer husband Phil Bardsley.
But even though she did a lot of exercise, Tanya said the kids left her with abs three inches apart.
After years of considering a tummy tuck, the 40-year-old finally took the plunge and went under the knife in January – and says she’s “over the moon” with the result.

Tanya said husband Phil had doubts about the surgery after her previous botched breast surgery.
She told New Magazine, “Phil kept saying, ‘No, I love your belly the way it is!’ but he also called it my mother’s bag! but [now I’ve had the surgery] he thinks it looks good.
“I think he was just scared after my bad boob job and he’d heard horror stories about surgeries, but he was fine in the end.”
The reality star added, “You know how men are – they don’t want the woman to be out of action because they have to work more!”
Showing off her new body, Tanya said she feels “so much better” about herself and joked, “It’s nice not having to put my skin in my Spanx!”
Tanya was an original actor on The Real Housewives Of Cheshire when it first aired on ITVBe in 2015.
She recently announced she had left the show after six years following an ADHD diagnosis and a terrible seizure that left her hospitalized last August.
The model revealed she collapsed during a photoshoot and later said stress caused by “overwork” was to blame.
Taking to Instagram, she wrote: “One minute in the studio, the next minute in an ambulance.
“I broke down from the stress of overwork and basically tried to be perfect in every area of my life, mother, wife, businesswoman, caregiver to poor relatives.
“My brain and body shut down as a warning. I have a few days off my phone so sorry if I don’t reply to messages and emails, @phil_bardsley is making me rest.”
Tanya has since vowed to put her health first and shared that it was the seizure that prompted her to leave the show.
“If I hadn’t had the seizure, I would have stayed there until I died,” she said.
