Rochelle Humes took to Instagram on Boxing Day to give fans an insight into her Christmas celebrations with her husband Marvin.

The former singer, 33, put on a leggy display in a black minidress as she posed in front of their huge Christmas tree with her JLS star partner, 37, who put on a snazzy display in a blue pyjama co-ord.

In her caption, she announced her plans to ‘sign off’ from social media for ‘a couple of weeks’ so she could spend ‘quality time’ with her family.

Rochelle also posted a snap with Marvin and their two-year-old son Blake, who wore a matching outfit.

She penned: ‘Before I go this could possibly be my new favourite pic…can you cope? My boys…an unbreakable bond.’

It comes after Rochelle admitted that she sometimes struggles when her husband Marvin is called a ‘good dad’ because she feels good mothers should be recognised more.

The ex Saturdays bandmember shares children Alaia-Mae, nine, Valentina, five, and Blake with the former X Factor contestant, whom she married in 2012.

And though she says she’s ‘grateful’ that he’s a wonderful father to their little ones, she feels it’s an ‘archaic way of thinking’ that fathers are being praised for being a good parent while mum’s are just ‘expected’ to. 

Speaking on the My Love Is… podcast, the star opened up about family and addressed her thoughts on having ‘daddy issues’, stemming from the fact her own father walked out when she was a baby.

Rochelle said: ‘I hate the ‘daddy issues’ title. It didn’t affect our relationship but my appreciation for him went through the roof when I saw what he’s like with our kids. 

‘I’m so grateful – but in all honestly I have a weird relationship with that. My mum will say to me, “Oh my God you’re so lucky… He’s such a good dad”. I understand why she says that because of her experience and past with my dad.

‘However, I’m like, “Marvin just stepped up and was a dad”. Who does that for me? Who says, “Oh my gosh you’re so lucky Rochelle is such a good mum”? Because that’s expected.’

The This Morning presenter went on to say that while she and her children are ‘lucky’ to have Marvin in their lives and are ‘grateful’ for all he does, she can help think that women should get the same treatment.

She went on to question why people clap for people who ‘do what they’re supposed to do’, adding that she feels it’s ‘an archaic way of thinking’.

The TV star concluded that she ‘hates’ the term ‘daddy daycare’ as sounds like fathers are just ‘babysitting’ their own children, adding it’s like a ‘novelty’. 

Rochelle has never had a relationship with her father, Mark Piper, after he walked out on her and her mother Roz when she was less than a year old.

But despite the rocky relationship between the two, she did reunite with her siblings from his side of the family during her late twenties.

Mark went on to have Rochelle’s lookalike sisters Lili and Sophie, alongside her brother Jake, with his new partner.

Admitting to The Sun she was ‘curious’ as to why her father could look after new children but not her, Rochelle admitted that becoming a mother settled those wonderings and confirmed that she did not want a relationship with him.

Noting that no siblings are ‘half’ or ‘step’, Rochelle concluded: ‘We’re one big blended family.’

Candid: 'I¿m so grateful ¿ but in all honestly I have a weird relationship with that. My mum will say to me, "Oh my God you¿re so lucky... He¿s such a good dad"
