Nadia has frequently touched upon her family's experience, with the star balancing her busy TV career with being a mum and stepmum, along with home educating her two daughters. Most recently, Maddie and Kiki enjoyed experimenting with their hair during a class. The star took to social media to showcase her daughters' vibrant hair shades, with Maddie looking cool with a bold orange tone, and Kiki rocking purple tips. "Ermm…it's all change in the hair department here at Sawalha-Adderley HQ!! Home Ed, freedom to express," Nadia captioned the photo of the pair.
The TV presenter also recently admitted that in the early days, she felt "a bit naff" in comparison to her two young stepdaughters, who were eight and three respectively when she first met them. Talking on her YouTube channel, Nadia said: "Even their names were the names of rock star children. Izzy and Fleur. They were just trendy names. I felt 'I am a bit naff. I am this plump, D-list, daytime presenter'. That's what I thought."
