Steph McGovern says she could ‘barely get herself to work’ after daughter’s turbulent eve

Steph McGovern shared a candid family admission on social media today. The TV star, who presents self-titled Channel 4 show Steph’s Packed Lunch, was sharing her morning exercise routine with her Instagram followers, when she opened up.

Steph got up early to get a workout in before taking her daughter to nursery and heading to work.

She could be seen performing kick backs and press-ups before 7am.

The mum-of-one, who welcomed her first child into the world in November 2019, admitted that her mornings did not always run so smoothly.

The 39-year-old admitted that earlier this week she could just about make it into work after her child threw a “cot party” until the early hours of the morning.

In a rare family update, Steph said of her two-year-old: “She was just totally unaware of anything, so actually her development this year, has been the thing that’s kept me grounded.

“Because it’s like, ‘Okay we don’t know what’s going to happen next with the pandemic, we don’t know when we’re going to be out of this lockdown… oh but look, she’s just been laughing!’ or ‘she’s just pooed on the utility room floor’ or whatever,” she told Huffington Post.

“I actually got loads of joy out of those types of things and they kept me sane,” the presenter continued:

“Okay, she wasn’t seeing family and our friends and she still finds it a bit mad when we do see people now because she’s like, ‘Wow, more people on this planet exist than you, and my other mum’.”
