Rochelle Humes, Frankie Sandford and Una Foden are all mothers, but they say that juggling parenthood with being in a famous group is no big deal.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Frankie, who is mum to 8-month-old son Parker, said: “You just make it work, really. It’s the same as any other working mum.”

Frankie, who is set to marry her footballer partner Wayne Bridge this year, added that the group’s mothers never feel torn between their children and the music.

She continued: “There’s a lot of help from other people, but we’ve always been a family-orientated band, so we never feel like we have to choose between the two. We’re really lucky.”

Frankie’s band mate Rochelle Humes, who has daughter Alaia-Mai with JLS singer Marvin, said that she wouldn’t mind if her children wanted to pursue the same kind of career as their parents.

She said: “[They can do] whatever they want to do. They’re so young and it’s such an early stage, but whatever they want to do, we’ll support them.”

They're releasing their greatest hits – but The Saturdays are here to stay

While the announcement of the collection album sparked fears of a split among fans, the band have dismissed this and said they will be sticking around.

Speaking earlier this year, Frankie said: “It’s more like a massive celebration for us. We’ve been together seven years and [are about to release] our 17th single and this just felt like natural progression for us. It’s more like a celebration of the fact we’ve had 17 hit singles.”
