"I wanted to make sure there was no jealousy, no bickering and they were welcoming the baby with open arms."

Brown is due to get back to work soon after she gives birth this summer, after signing on as a judge on the Australian version of 's reality TV show "" - but she insists her new job will not interfere with her duties as a new mum.

She says, "I'm only gonna be working Saturday night, so the rest of the time I can spend with my family."
