Myleene Klass has come to love being a single mother and is "completely and utterly bonded" with her daughters.
The TV presenter was married to Graham Quinn until 2013 and has previously said the divorce "rocked my whole existence".
Klass, 38, told The Daily Telegraph's Stella Magazine: " I am a single mother. I provide for my girls, I feed them, I look after them. I think there are a lot of women out there in a similar position. You think it's better to be with someone - but the reality is it's not better.
"You think it's a catastrophe that the relationship has ended, but it isn't at all.
"In the first few months, I hated those moments when the girls were in bed and I was on my own. I worried that all decisions were mine.
"It took me a while to realise that, actually, I love that. Me and my girls are a unit, we are strong, we are completely and utterly bonded."
She added: "I decided to 'own' being a single mother, to challenge the stereotype. I'm like a cockroach. Stamp on me, but you won't destroy me, I'll keep coming back. I don't know any other way to be.
"And if you have children and you are the one who is the breadwinner, the tooth-brusher, the dinner-maker, the bag-packer, you just have to keep on going."
