The stay-at-home mum begins preparing a pasta dinner for the family at about 4.30pm while the twins take their final nap of the day and her older children clear away piles of toys in the playroom to leave it spotless. The kids then sit down to eat at about 6pm while she feeds the baby twins, with the mum explaining herself and Rohan will sometimes choose to eat later instead. It’s then time for the children to all take it turns to have a bath or shower and change into a full set of matching pyjamas, while Chloe bathes the two babies in the sink.

Chloe said: “It’s definitely gotten easier over the years with the night-time routine as all bar the twins can now dress themselves. With the triplets there for a bit when they were young, it was a lot of work. But I think with big families you have to do whatever works for you.”
