Paddy said of their difference in parenting skills: "I remember seeing something when Simon Cowell had his son, talking about how he doesn't even think about doing nappies, he's never done a nappy ever, and I kind of think, you've got to earn your parenting stripes, you've got to do that.

"You've got to get poo under your fingernails, covered in p**s and everything else and spew and what have you."

He continued to tell The Sun on Sunday: "If you've not done that you've never fully embraced the whole thing.

"I feel as though as a person it makes you stronger as well, because of all that stuff you have been through."

Paddy recently joked he was worried Christine, 32, had fallen pregnant with their fourth child and that his vasectomy had not worked.

Taking to Instagram to share a snap of a Fab ice lolly and a cup of tea, the Top Gear host revealed that his model wife had requested them for dinner and called it a "#weirdcraving".

Joking that he is "praying" his procedure "held up", Paddy wrote alongside the post: "Just asked the good lady what she wanted for her supper? I'm praying that vasectomy has held up! #weirdcraving #icelollyandacupoftea #wtf #supper #staysafe".

Real Housewives of Cheshire star Christine commented on the post: "Oh no! I craved Fabs through both pregnancies I'm scared now I told you to get it checked!," alongside a crying with laughter emoji, an aubergine and some cherries.
