I nearly died in childbirth and won't be getting pregnant with new man Ryan, insists Kerry Katona

KERRY Katona definitely wants to have a baby with boyfriend Ryan Mahoney but refuses to be pregnant.

The singer and TV star, 41, is keen to have a child with Ryan but has no desire to fall pregnant herself after she nearly died giving birth to her youngest Dylan-Jorge, seven.

She suffered from pre-eclampsia in her most recent labour, a condition which can cause the vital organs to swell. While Dylan-Jorge was placed on life support immediately after being born.

Kerry opened up about her plans and traumatic birth after Hollywood actress Gwenyth Paltrow revealed she almost died giving birth to her oldest daughter, Apple, 17.

"I can totally relate to her as I nearly died when I gave birth to DJ, and that's why I never want to be pregnant ever again," she wrote in New magazine.

"It was very traumatic and I still think about it."

Kerry added: "It's affected me that much that I don't want another pregnancy.

"Even though I still want more children, I'm not willing to put my body through that again."

She also recently revealed she's getting her eggs harvested so she can try for a sixth child with a surrogate.

Speaking on Steph's Packed Lunch last month, Kerry said: "We actually have an appointment tomorrow about getting my eggs harvested.

"That's the next step and that's as far as we're going – getting the eggs harvest and making sure they're all good."

The procedure can see as many as 15 eggs harvested per cycle, according to the Mayo Clinic. Once the eggs have been removed from the follicles within the ovaries, they are frozen for future use.

Kerry is also mum to Molly, 20, Lilly-Sue, 18, Heidi, 14, and Maxwell, 13.

Explaining her reasons for exploring surrogacy, which could potentially set the couple back as much as £25,000, Kerry said: "Ryan hasn't got any of his own children biologically speaking.

"He's eight years younger than me, but I don't want to rob Ryan of not having a child if that's a route we can go down. But I most certainly I don't want to carry another child."

Personal trainer Ryan said they are in no rush to add to Kerry's brood, but wanted to do the groundwork for when the time comes.

He said: "It might something down the line, a thought for me – Like I want something more than I do at the minute. At the minute we're so busy, it's not top of the list.

"But if it is going to happen, we've got to get the ball rolling and start the process."
