Her trademark humour and honesty remind us that positivity is key to making it as a mum... Giovanna knows there's no perfect way to parent - and that's why we will always love her!


Whether you have little ones of your own or not, this honest, touching, wise and at times very funny book from mum, McFly wife and author Gi is a joy. Being this honest takes guts, and she does it with dignity, grace and incredible warmth.
