Mom rarely talks about family life and her role as a stepmother, having previously said, “I tend to let Pete discipline me and I often feel like an older sister, which works very well for us.”
In a new interview, the NHS doctor revealed that his secret to balancing his mixed family is keeping things stable.
Speaking to Closer magazine about her parenting strategy, she explained: “I think routine helps children feel safe in the facility, so they know what’s going on, they know what to expect.
“I try to keep things consistent for them as much as possible.”
Emily, whose husband Peter recently said this year is “the time” for another baby, continued: “I’m pretty strict, especially with things like manners.
“Pete and I are very similar, really. We both pay a lot of attention to honesty, good manners, kindness.
“Pete is probably more relaxed than I am. I’m probably more strict, but he can also repress.
“He doesn’t get mad at them very often, but when he does, they definitely know and he’ll scold them if need be.”

It comes after Emily discussed juggling her role as a mom and working as a doctor, as well as writing her new book Growing Up For Girls.
Speaking in a candid chat with OK!, Emily revealed: “Just the fact that you say I’m an author leads to my impostor syndrome! I understand a lot and feel like, ‘I’m definitely not good enough to do it’ or ‘I don’t think I can do this’ .
“So before I started the book, I had to have a few words with myself. I don’t see myself as an author yet, but I guess I am now and it’s so exciting.
“But I’d be lying if I said it’s not hard work. I try to juggle my role as a mom and my job for the NHS, which I both love.
“I used to write in the evening once I got the kids to bed and we tidied up. So that meant a few late nights.”
