And Wicks admitted they would like to grow their family even bigger.

And also teaching them and seeing them learn, whether it's a musical instrument or a language, I just love it."

Wicks also revealed the reason why he and his wife have decided to start homeschooling their eldest daughter. The PE Worksouts star become a global hit with his online daily family exercise videos during lockdown and revealed he always wanted to be a PE teacher.

He said: "All my kids have gone to nursery, my little boy goes to nursery. Indy went to school for a year and she loved, she enjoyed it, but we really just want to spend more time with her and we want to be able travel, and I just love home schooling. So we're giving it a go for a year or two and just see how it goes. I'm not saying it's for ever. It has its stressful moments because with a little baby it can be quite challenging.

"But Rosie always said if she wasn't modelling back in the day she would have loved to be a school teacher. And myself I wanted to be a PE teacher so we're just doing what we love to do. But it is hard, its not easy, I don't think you could do it on your own, it's quite challenging." Wicks added: "When I think about home school I think cooking, I think exercise, I think movement, and all these important life skills we need for healthy and happy children."

Wicks has previously spoken about his own difficult childhood as his father was a heroin addict and absent from his life growing up, while his mother struggled with OCD. He told The Sun in 2022: "When your father is absent as a young kid, it makes you want to be stable. When you’re a kid all you want is someone to be there and be supportive. It’s made me be very committed to Rosie for one and to work through stuff... I want the kids to see that we can argue and you can work through it."

Loose Women airs on ITV at 12.30pm on weekdays.
