She is private when it comes to her relationships. She may have posted pictures with her friends but not a single picture that hints at her relationships.
She is a mother to Theo Mackley who was born when Rachel was 20. In 2017, she shared a picture of her 16-year-old son on Twitter.
Later in 2017, she became pregnant with her second child but just like her first child, information about the father is yet not revealed. During her maternal leave, English television presenter Rob Smith tweeted a picture which shows them comparing their belly sizes.
