The presenter keeps her personal life private, but back in 2017, she did reveal that she still employs a nanny to help take care of her children. "I know it must sound absurd but we have a nanny," the 53-year-old BBC newsreader told the Mail at the time. "Clare has been with us for 19 years. Obviously we don't need a nanny any more, but she's part of our family."

"There was always a point at which I thought, 'If I leave now, I can make bath time', and I'd get really irritable and try to rattle through stuff," she said. Fiona also reflected on her decision to be a working mum. "My kids once said, 'What would you do if you hadn't got us?'" she shared. "I replied, 'I'd be more successful and I'd have more friends, but I wouldn't be as happy.'"

She added that Antiques Roadshow meant leaving Sam and Mia Rose with their dad while she worked, explaining: "Antiques Roadshow' was the first job I had taken since my children were born that took me away from them consistently over a period of time. That was a big adjustment for all of us."
