‘The girls are so sweet, and keeping us busy really,’ Cherise told Lorraine on her eponymous ITV show this morning. 

Adding they all have their own personalities, Cherise went on: ‘Harley is just so independent, she definitely comes back for cuddle now and the but she’s always just off doing her own thing.

‘Lacey is a little bit more laid back and she’s a thumb sucker so she’ll just have one toy and sit to the side.

‘And Chloe, she’s just a clown, but she’s also a fighter, she just savages her sisters, which the others don’t do at all, so it’s quite funny to see.

‘He’s just a little crazy clown in the family and keeps the girl really entertained with all his jokes and personality. 

‘We just couldn’t be happier with our bundles of joy.

‘We ‘re desperate to share, share them with our friends and family, our communities and so good, helping us out with dropping out meals.

‘When we did the most they’re just in there for us and it’s just the support and whatnot. Yeah, we’re very blessed.

Dave, who works from home, added that he’s lucky his colleagues have been flexible with him while working from home, allowing him to get involved with caring for the triplets. 

‘The gorgeous, positive side of lockdown is I’m at home and can help out. I can’t say enough for my boys because they’ve stepped up and done the job for me too. We’ve got so close over the last few months,’ he added.

‘I’m very fortunate right now, I’m juggling a new start-up but blessed that I have great colleagues and a wonderful family.
