Robert de Torigni, in his additions to GND, stated that was first Richard's mistress, and that the marriage occurred after the birth of the children. [GND viii, 36 (vol. 2, pp. 266-9)]
  6. Wikipedia gives a birth year of about 936, but lists children born as late as 985. Cawley estimates a birth year of about 950, which appears to fit better not only with her own children, but also with other family members.
