Magdalena and Zac are 5 and 4 now. They attend a bi-lingual nursery and kindergarten school daily. They enjoy colouring, ballet, football, martial arts and eating out! They have huge appetites and very sophisticated pallets, they enjoy things like broccoli and spinach and all vegetables so long as they are not over cooked, in fact they really prefer to eat them raw but slightly warm, unless of course it’s chips, or sweet potatoes, or mashed potatoes!
They are learning to read and write now and are able to work out most things by themselves phonetically. Magdalena is very interested in fashion and would spend her days in her Beauty and the Beast, Belle dress, with her red Hunter wellies shopping for hair accessories at Claire’s and eating muffins if I let her. (Just like her mama!)
Meanwhile Zac also loves his fashion but currently praying his feet will grow so he can fit into his Spiderman Crocs he received for his birthday. Next month the children are meeting with The Red Cross to help develop their own fashion line to raise money for children in Ghana. Zac is crazy about his Mary McCartney t-shirts and his retro kickers in bright blue!
They have had an amazing time this year. A month in HONG KONG with their father learning Mandarine and savouring authentic Chinese foods and playing on the beach in Kowlong where their afro hair was a big attraction and had them being ‘papped’ like celebrities by the locals!
They go to HILLSONG KIDS CHURCH at THE DOMINION THEATRE.
They have attended numerous events, including MOVIE PREMIERES FOR BOB THE BUILDER, BARBIE, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST AND THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE, BUT THEIR FAVOURITE WAS THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG PREMIERE WHERE THEY ALSO ENJOYED A FABULOUS TEA PARTY, BEN TEN and HOP
The children look so much alike and are a similar size so they are often mistaken as twins, Zac loves this as he is the youngest but Magdalena gets quite put-out that people can mistake her for ‘still being a baby!
A few years ago at the X FACTOR the children fell head over heels for JOHN AND EDWARD collectively known as JEDWARD and spent last year and the best part of this year STILL insisting they are called BABIES JEDWARD at home, she JOHN and he EDWARD! The name has stuck and recently when their mama was out at an event, a twitter friend she had never met before came over to say hello and was delighted to meet BABIES JEDWARD!!”
Mama normally refers to them as The Short People when they are out of earshot.
The affectionate pair are extremely well behaved and lots of fun to be with and only REALLY show their NAUGHTY SIDES when they are with their Godfather, Silly Simon who loves teaching them how to be naughty and silly!
Eager to follow in Mama’s footsteps the children are modelling to promote Step 2 Step children’s shoes for Harvey Nichols and Selfridges, professionally for the first time! I am excited and also dreading the day a little. Will they be perfect little angels or embarrass me by refusing to cooperate and running wild, raising havoc? I will upload some of the pictures when we get them…
