The 32-year-old, who shares one-year-old Fox with her NRL player husband Benji Marshall, made the admission to her co-host Sean Szeps, explaining that she said something to someone which she had regretted instantly.
“I caught myself complaining about my child.”

Acknowledging that not everyone would find her tale shocking, including Szeps, who is dad to 19-month-old twins Stella and Cooper, with husband Josh, Marshall explained what happened.
“[Fox] has been so clingy, on me, all the time; and it’s suffocating,” she said, describing her state of mind at the time.
Being a parent himself, Szeps understood that – but knew what the real cause of Marshall’s discomfort might be: the person whom she’d confided in.
“This is probably the worst part,” she continued. “It was someone that I didn’t even know well.”
Marshall said she wasn’t entirely sure why she confided in that person, and admitted she feels “guilty” about it.
“Then I tried to fix it, but I’d already said it. And then I just felt like a sh*t human. I feel guilty.”
But Szeps, who is a long-time personal friend of Marshall’s, noted that if the other person was a parent themselves, which they were, they would have completely understood.
“If you’re a parent, you immediately give every other parent the benefit of the doubt,” he reminded her.
