Michelle Keegan says she's sick of 'sexist questions' about having kids

Michelle Keegan has hit out at sexist attitudes – and questioned why she’s asked so often about kids.

Showbiz super couple Michelle and hubby Mark Wright tied the knot in 2015, and have gone from strength to strength.

And one thing on fans’ minds has been whether they’ll add a third member to their brood.

But Michelle takes issue with the questions – specifically, why they’re directed at her so often.

“I do think it’s different for a woman,” she told Women’s Health, “It shouldn’t be, but it is.

“I get asked about children whereas Mark wouldn’t, for example. Why haven’t I had a child? When am I going to have a child?

“I don’t know what they want me to say. I don’t know what the right or wrong answer is.”

Speculation was rife after they both shared snaps cradling Michelle’s baby nephew.

While fans gushed that Mark oozed “daddy vibes”, Michelle looked smitten with the snoozing newborn.

Michelle also told the publication about her dedication to fitness and healthy eating – and how she hadn’t always had the same outlook.

Michelle and ripped Mark regularly dish out workout inspo on their social media, Mark even walking fans through his gruelling lockdown fitness regime.

But Michelle said her school days were a far cry from the confident exercise guru fans see today.

In fact, she would try to skip out on PE class all together.

Michelle is known for her enviable figure as well as acting talent, but she hasn’t always been so keen on fitness

“I hated PE at school,” she shared, “I’d pretend I’d forgotten my kit because I used to get so embarrassed about always coming last in things.

“In netball, no one threw me the ball because they knew I couldn’t catch it.”

And she opened up about the legacy of her character Georgie Lane in military drama Our Girl.

Michelle admitted she felt the nerves on her first day, wanting to prove she was a “versatile” actor after leaving a gig as Tina McIntyre on Corrie.
