Geordie Shore star Gaz Beadle made headlines last month after he and his wife Emma McVey split after two years of marriage.
He has since faced backlash after Emma revealed she looks after their kids alone six nights a week.
Emma took to Instagram over the weekend to share an adorable photo dump of herself and the two little ones featuring some home baking, car journeys and bedtime snuggles.
She captioned the post: "The strength these two give me is a strength I never knew I had," along with a white heart emoji.
The model continued to reveal what her life was like now following the split, telling her 894k followers: "Somedays are good, somedays are really hard."
She opened up about how she took care of five-year-old Chester and Primrose, three, 'six nights a week'.
"Doing this alone six nights a week, trying to heal, trying to work, planning both their birthdays and Christmas in the space of six weeks, the mental load alone seriously sends my head into a fuzz most days," Emma continued.
She added that the guilt that her two children won’t have the two-parent household she 'always imagined' of 'eats [her] alive'.
"But," the mum went on, "I know a happy house is more important."
Ending the post with some heartfelt advice to any other struggling parents out there, she concluded: "To anyone else going through this right now my advice is take it day by day, and if that’s too much, hour by hour."
Emma also previously confronted the people claiming she took Gaz's money following the split.
Taking to her Instagram story, the 34-year-old explained: "I have never and will never take money from their dad. I have always paid 50/50 if not more of everything we have.
"We separated for so many reasons of which I do not need to air because I wouldn't want the kids growing up with it all over the internet."
The mum-of-two continued: "A lot has happened that won't be spoken about, so please do not judge me and think you know my situation.
"Just because I don't cry on my socials and tell you all doesn't mean I haven't been going through hell."
Emma appears to have since turned off the comments on the post but The Sun has reported that one Instagram user hit out: "God six nights a week... Gary really needs to be there more... he is their father and should share the responsibility."
A second echoed: "Hopefully dad will help more nights a week once things more settled and give you some time for yourself to heal."
"Don't they have a dad???" asked a third.
When asked if he was still with his wife last month, Gaz candidly replied: "We split three weeks ago.
"We are still friends, there is no bad blood or anything and we have worked out the best way of doing it for the kids, which for me and Emma is always going to be the most important thing."
Tyla has contacted Gaz Beadle's representatives for a comment.
