Chelsea adores nothing more than being a mum, and previously revealed that she regularly reads her children the news headlines each morning. She told Seth Meyers on the Late Night with Seth Meyers show: "I read the [newspaper] headlines to Charlotte and to her little brother Aidan. The first thing I remember learning how to read is the newspaper." She continued: "I realise they don't quite understand what I'm talking about. But hopefully it'll just be part of their lives so that when they do understand, they will have options. I'm just so excited to learn what they're going to be most curious about, interested in, and angry about."
