Four other couples shared their stories about their $ex life since becoming parents.
Sleep deprivation, a tightly packed schedule, and a newborn baby can cut the sexy time by half. A fifth of the parents cannot remember the last time they got freaky. On the other hand, the TV star and businesswoman, Tanya Beardsley, the star of ‘The Real Housewives of Cheshire,’ said she makes love to her husband Phil every day, so he can stay loyal.
The Sun asked four pairs of parents to reveal how much time they have for being intimate.

Ideally, a couple should be intimate every day, but Katie said she would settle for twice a week. More $ex would be freeing, but with so little time, it is hard. We just have to be patient.
Michelle & John: Keeping the flame alive
Michelle (37) and her husband John (34) make love once every two weeks. They have two kids – Issy (15) and Thomas (5).

They could never be spontaneous with her being sleep-deprived or John being too tired. So they are lucky if the $ex happens every few weeks, usually in the morning.
They wish they could do it every day and hope to do it once the kids grow up.
But instead, they try to keep the fire alive and cuddle every day for at least half an hour.
