On the twins' fourth birthday in 2017, Christine revealed that they are autistic. "I love you unconditionally, and I will encourage you both to embrace your autism," the doting mum wrote on Instagram at the time. "Because you are totally unique and fantastically awesome. All my love always, Mummy." Earlier this year, the model shared an emotional and motivational quote about motherhood. She wrote alongside it: "Mamas.. it took me years to realise it’s ok to do something for yourself, in-fact it’s more than ok, it’s bloody fantastic!. Don't feel guilty, don't feel selfish! Your children, your husband, your partner, mum, dad, brother, sister.. everyone wants you to be happy too! Do something for you, you are more than just a mummy, you are a person too, please look after YOU."
