Myleene, who is the mother of daughters Ava, 13, and Hero, 10, also spoke about how she teaches them the value of money despite their privileged lifestyle, while Ava now teaches piano students.
As a stepmother, the former HearSay singer said, ‘You really have to be mature enough that you can be, even if you don’t want to be.
“I told Sim when we all first lived in the house, I said I won’t tell your kids because I don’t feel like that’s my role.

“And in ten minutes that was out the window when one of them is hanging from the climbing frames and another is trying to put a ball through a window.”
‘In the end I just changed all that and I sat around the table and said look, the only way we’re going to do this is, I see it like we’re all in a boat, this is how I look at it.
And one of you rocks the boat, we’ll all feel it. And if one of you goes overboard, I’ll grab you and make sure you’re safe. That’s the only way we’ll get through it, if we’re all there.
“When something gets a little rocky or someone is in trouble, we all say” remember the boat. “
Honestly: As a stepmother, the former HearSay singer said, ‘You really have to be as grown up as you can be, even if you don’t want to be’
Myleene went on to talk about how she doesn’t give her two daughters pocket money, instead encouraging her eldest Ava to learn piano to make her own money.
“They have to learn the value of money,” she said. So now she teaches and now has six students. It teaches her time management, she has to be organized with it, she has to plan her lessons and then she has to manage her money.
She has a small ledger, both girls get ledger so they know how to handle their money. I think it is especially important for women to understand how to handle their money.
Great Mom: Myleene went on to talk about how she doesn’t give her two daughters pocket money, and instead encouraged her oldest Ava to learn piano to make her own money.
‘As women, we often lag behind, we don’t want to ask for a pay rise and we are not always on top of our finances.’
The talented pianist also shared how she juggles her career and motherhood.
Myleene said there was a time when she presented Smooth Radio while expressing milk for her son Apollo.
She said, “I loved breastfeeding all of my children.
“I’ve spoken on the air more times than I can remember. To the point where my producer would be, “you can just turn the pump off because we’re going live in 10”, so I’ll give it a little click, do my chat, introduce Chaka Khan and we’ll pump out again. ‘
