Three s a charm for Paula
Picture: Mogens Johansen/The West Australian

Life may be a little chaotic juggling a boisterous two-year-old and newborn twins, but for Seven newsreader *Paula Voce *, motherhood is bliss.

Voce gave birth to twins *Alexa * and *Jaxon * last month and after spending two weeks in neonatal care, the bubs - now four-and-a-half weeks old -- are finally settling into life at home.

Although clearly relishing being a mother of three, Voce told _AAA _ that it had its challenges.

"It's been a little chaotic, but we're starting to get into a routine and starting to live without sleep again," she laughed.

"But you get used to it. Initially, it was quite daunting but now it's lovely and as I adapt - and as (two-year-old daughter) *Jorja * adapts - it can only get better, because you get the rewards as you go."

Voce said husband *Jim Ilias *- who is now back at work after taking some time off after the twins were born - had also been lending a helping hand.

"He loves it, but he has to be a bit hands-on," she said. "He's done more with these two than he ever did with Jorja in two-and-a-half years.

"We share the nights, which is good, because he survives on less sleep than I do (laughs)."

While she loves being a mum, a return to TV is still on the cards for Voce, who is keen to get back into Seven's hectic newsroom once the twins are old enough.

"As long as they're OK and being looked after, I'd be happy to go back," she said. "I love doing it for me.

"I think you work very hard to get where you get for the love of it.

"I love being in that adrenaline mix, I love working as a team, and I love the live TV side of it."
