Just after Christmas, Nadia admitted that she hasn’t ruled out expanding her family – and would be keen to adopt or foster in the future. During a live chat on her family's YouTube channel, Nadia Sawalha and Family, the TV presenter responded to a fan who had said that she is always full of surprises, Nadia said: " I still am thinking about adoption and fostering, but Mark's not interested at all." Mark replied: "I can't work out if she's joking or not?" to which Nadia defiantly responded: "I'm not."

"It was life-changing, completely gobsmacking moment where I felt connected to you where I never felt more connected to you," he told his wife. Recalling the moment Kiki was born, Nadia said: "When she came – and we have a photo of her – Mark's face is as if to say 'she's here'. We had all the miscarriages as well, it was insane."
