Kirstie Allsopp looks like she is having a wonderful summer – and has treated her sons to a trip to New York! The doting mum, who is usually quite private when it comes to posting photos of her children, gave fans a rare glimpse into her happy family life on Tuesday, to recommend a restaurant that they had enjoyed eating at. The Location, Location, Location star uploaded a photo of her with sons Bay and Oscar, who were pictured standing in front of Belgium-British bistro, Oscar's Place. The restaurant had been a hit with Kirstie and her family, and she revealed that after stumbling across it earlier in the week, they had decided to go back for seconds.

She then added: "Excuse misty photo, not some clever app, the lovely lady who offered to take a pic didn't mention layer of sun cream on lense. #nyc."
