The Twitterview: Sara Cox

Radio DJ Sara on life as a mum, being a dog lover and (shh!) a One Direction fan...


@PPPMAGAZINE: What’s the funniest thing your daughter Lola, 8, has ever said to you?


@sarajcox: She is at a real funny age where she is saying some really funny things at the moment. She took me by surprise the other day saying ‘soil my pants’!

@PPPMAGAZINE: What’s been your biggest ‘oops moment’ as a parent?

@sarajcox: I remember I was trying to remember everything for a car journey and after loading up, plonked Lola in the car and started driving off, only to realise I had forgotten to strap her in!

@PPPMAGAZINE: What was your real ‘I wasn’t expecting that’ moment while you were pregnant?

@sarajcox: I found having baths really tricky and was worried about being wedged in!

@PPPMAGAZINE: Are you the kind of parent you thought you’d be?

@sarajox: Yeah I think so, I can be quite shouty but we have a lot of fun and encourage lots of kisses!

@PPPMAGAZINE: Do you plan to have any more kids?

@sarajcox: Nope!

@PPPMAGAZINE: As a mum, what three things can’t you live without?

@sarajcox: 1. Netflix  2.Tissues  3. My local park

@PPPMAGAZINE: Is your daughter a One Direction or Justin Bieber fan – are you a fan?

@sarajcox: 1D! She has met Harry twice now and went to one of the concerts. She is a huge fan! (And I suppose I am a bit, yes).

@PPPMAGAZINE: What are you most looking forward to as Lola gets older?

@sarajcox: It will be so lovely to have girly one on one time together, like reading. She loves reading and clothes and it will be lovely to go to H&M and shop together.

@PPPMAGAZINE: What are your dreading…?

@sarajcox: the usual things….hormones and the teenage years!

@PPPMAGAZINE: What is your dog Snoop like around children? Is he a big softy?

@sarajcox: He is great. He is very old so quite slow, but he is definitely a softy – and really sees the kids as a source for food!

@PPPMAGAZINE: Is Snoop like your second child?

@sarajcox: Ha no, he is more like an elderly uncle

@PPPMAGAZINE: What would your advice be to other mums juggling pets and babies/kids?

@sarajcox: I grew up on a farm and was surrounded by dogs and I think it’s a good way of teaching kids to care for things.
