The star celebrated Father's Day with a photo of Matt and her dad, Steve

Emma, 45, and Matt have been married since 2008 and together they are parents to Isabelle, son Ace, nine, and five-year-old Trixie.

While the couple occasionally share photos of their children on social media, they always ensure their faces are hidden from view to protect their privacy.

Emma previously spoke about her bond with Isabelle, Ace and Trixie and admitted that 38-year-old Matt is usually seen as the 'fun' parent.

Emma has said that husband Matt is the 'fun parent'

"He's like the fourth child. And that for me, is perfect, because I think he has such a fantastic bond and relationship with them because he can get down to their level, do you know what I mean? And when they want fun they go to him," she told Dave Berry on his Dadpod podcast.

"It makes me feel sensationally boring because I'm like, 'Oh I'm that one, that tells them off and makes sure the washing's done,' and I am the quintessential mum and I think security. That's what I've always had from my dad and Matt is just always there and always fun and I'm quite jealous of that."
