Rochelle Humes is well known for the incredibly gorgeous but private family.

Although the former Saturdays star regularly posts photo of her two daughters Alaia-Mai, five, and Valentina, two, her followers haven't actually seen their faces.

However there's one family member - other than her husband Marvin Humes - that she does post pictures of and that's her adorable puppy Ginger.

Rochelle is so into her pup that she's even made an Instagram account for her, and now the This Morning star has revealed exactly how she managed the transition of bringing her adorable pooch into her family.

Speaking to us at This Morning Live, she explained: "Make sure you find the right breed and look into the right breed for yourself.

"I chose a cockapoo because they are so great with kids and such a good family dog."

"Do your research. We looked into it for over a year, just to make sure we were doing the right thing.

"I would say though; I'm toilet training a puppy and a child at once so maybe that I didn't plan so well," she joked.

Rochelle was also brutally honest and admitted that there's "never" going to be a balance when it comes to work and home life as a parent.

"Women and mums put so much pressure on themselves to have it sussed and to have it seamless and running smoothly.

"But some weeks I look at the diary and think 'I don't know how I'm going to be at the school play, at parents evening, at work, at home and a wife'.

"We all have those weeks and I think anyone would be lying if they said they've found the perfect balance. It's part of the fun but also part of the stress too."
