"Look, I don’t believe in whooping kids. I’ve never whooped mine," he told Us Weekly.

Sarah and Freddie are parents to two children

Speaking exclusively to HELLO!, Sarah previously revealed that the two know the importance of making sure their children grow up to be kind to others.

"We talk to our children all the time, and I always say that I don't care if they're the smartest in the class, I don't care if they're the fastest, I care that they're kind," she said.

"And that is a word that we use a lot in our house – to be thoughtful of the people around you and take that into consideration. And that to me has always been the most important value in our household."

Sarah helped to homeschool her kids during the COVID-19 pandemic but they returned to in-school teaching earlier this year, and the 44-year-old admitted she felt a "mix of excitement and trepidation" for them.

"The excitement comes from not just the fact that amen, I'm not their teacher anymore, but just the value of being in school," she revealed.

"But of course, there's that trepidation which is that I can protect them in my own home. I am in control of what happens, with who they see, of how they interact when their masks are on. And now I'm giving that up."
