Katona going for child number six

Katona going for child number six

Kerry Katona is planning her sixth child.

The Atomic Kitten singer - who has daughters Molly, 13, Lilly-Sue, 11, and Heidi, seven, and son Max, six, from previous relationships and daughter Dylan-Jorge with current husband George Kay - wants to have another baby but will wait until her touring commitments are over this year before trying to get pregnant again.

She said: "George wants me to fall pregnant ASAP. He would have another baby tomorrow if he could, he's very broody. I'd love another child, but this year is all about the tour.

"I was pregnant with DJ during the 'Big Reunion' tour in late 2013 and it was exhausting. I won't do that again.

"We've said 2016 will be the year for another baby and obviously I want to be as healthy as possible before falling pregnant, so that's another incentive to shift this weight [I gained over Christmas]."

Though Kerry, 34, has struggled with her weight and body image, she is determined not to set a bad example to her impressionable daughters.

She told Closer magazine: "Girls focus on body image so much younger nowadays. Lilly's only 11, but the other day she asked George to train her and her friend. I told her no way.

"There's nothing wrong with regular exercise, but I don't want my girls obsessing over dress sizes and calorie counting. It's all about feeling good."
