Almost two years have gone by since Vogue Williams and Brian McFadden wed in a lavish Tuscan ceremony, and in that time the Irish beauty has learned plenty about the realities of married life.
The TV presenter and model tells HELLO! Online that being married "definitely can't change somebody that much", and she admits: "I thought that I was going to turn Brian into a domestic God within the first year!"
As to what makes their union a success, she says: "It is all about compromise. I will do most of the housework but he takes care of going to the shops, giving me lifts or picking people up."
The former Fade Street star adds that :"You can’t be selfish anymore."
When she married Brian, Vogue,became step-mum to the former Westlife star's daughters Molly, 12, and 11-year-old Lily-Sue, from his marriage to Kerry Katona. The 28-year-old beauty says she has a strong bond with the girls, who are quickly developing an eye for fashion.
Vogue Williams and Brian MacFadden will celebrate their two-year wedding anniversary in September
"They are so funny now, they’re like my little pals. They are always borrowing all my jewellery and putting outfits together. They are so stylish," she says.
With her second wedding anniversary due to fall on 2 September, the star is constantly having to answer questions about her plans to welcome children of her own.
"I think people start asking you about whether you are going to start a family the day after you get married and it goes on until you have a baby. When you have your first baby they then start asking you about when you are going to have the next one," she explains.
Vogue's career as a DJ, model and TV star is going so well that baby plans will have to wait – for now
Brian and Vogue seem to be enjoying married life in the UK, having previously lived in Australia. Vogue is due to start filming her next TV show in August and is excited about various other projects that she is working on. So it seems that her plans to have a baby have been put on hold – for now.
"I thought that I was going to have kids by the time that I was 30. I even had a pact with my friends that we would all get pregnant at the same time. Work is going so well for me at the moment that I don’t want to rush it. Maybe in a few years time."
