Holly Willoughby ‘planning to move live-in nanny into her £5.5m mansion’
Holly Willoughby and husband Dan Baldwin are reportedly planning to build living quarters for a live-in nanny at their £5.5m mansion.
The This Morning host and her TV producer hubby have submitted documents to Richmond Council seeking permission to convert their garage into a living space for someone to help look after their three children, reports the Sutton & Croydon Guardian .
The couple, who share Harry, nine, Belle, eight, and Chester, four, bought their five-bedroom home in Barnes, London, in 2011 for £2.8m, but property website Zoopla estimates it's not worth around £5.5m.
In the years they've lived there, the couple has asked the council for permission to carry out work 13 times.
Some of the applications have been for minor changes such as felling trees, but some have been for more significant changes.
Two and a half years ago, they were given permission to excavate below the house to add a basement to their property.
But around the same time, their application to build a two-story extension on their house was rejected because the scale of the plans was deemed too "excessive".
They appealed but the decision was upheld by a government inspector.
Holly recently shared a rare picture of her children as they enjoyed a trip to the Maldives over the Easter holidays.
The sweet snap shows little Belle pointing up at the beautiful pink sky as her brothers gaze up at it too.
Holly captioned the snap: "Heavens above…"
The family enjoyed the trip while Holly took a two-week break from her presenting job on This Morning.
Holly, who is very private about her children and never shows their faces, also shared a cute picture of Belle stood on the beach to mark her eighth birthday.
The proud mum said: "And then like that she was 8…. happy birthday beautiful Belle… keep following that rainbow… love you so so much xxx"
Mirror Online has contacted Holly's representatives for comment.
