So far, the lovebirds have not disclosed much information about their wedding days on media. But in the presence of family and friends, they're believed to tie their knot in the year 2004. Adding to that, because of their privacy it's hard to find out their images on social media.

Thus, they seem to enjoy maintaining their romantic partnership away from the limelight. Radio host and a successful journalist are currently living with their children in the countryside near Knutsford, Cheshire. And their separation and an extramarital affair are not alleged.

Had Difficulties with Fourth-Born Premature Baby

From their marriage, the couple shares two older daughters and two younger sons. The kids named are Rose Mendham, Sam Mendham, Alice Mendham, and Henry Mendham.

In her fourth pregnancy, the news host had her knees swollen up to seven months pregnant. Also, she was diagnosed with severe pre-eclampsia, as well as being dangerously high pressure and geriatric.

Despite having many health problems, Rachel gave birth to her youngest son Henry. He was delivered in February 2016 via the caesarean section at Burnley Hospital, three months early. The newly-born baby was so small during his birth that he only weighed exactly three pounds.

Burden, 45, wasn't allowed to carry him for two days following Henry's birth but thankfully he didn't have any other health issues. She explained: "We were incredibly lucky and knew that we would just have to be patient and wait for him to grow".

BBC Host Rachel Apologizes Her Mistakes

Yes, the reporter who studied at Trinity College Dublin says sorry after inadvertently dropping an f-bomb while talking to Chris Grayling on breakfast radio. Actually, she and her co-host Nicky were discussing the former secretary of a legacy when she made the slip.

Speaking on Thursday's show to home affairs reporter Danny Shaw, she said: ”Chris seems to have been in charge of various departmental gaffes, f***-ups, mismanagement, controversies, and yet he’s still there in the cabinet.”

The discussion had focused on a National Probation Service decision. She subsequently confessed after being alerted to her mistake. She said:  ”By the way, I think a bad word may have slipped out, although that wasn’t the intention. It wasn’t what I’d thought I said". 

Rachel Burden continues explaining, “So, I apologize if anybody heard bad language earlier on. That wasn’t what was supposed to happen.”
