On Thursday this week (12 September), Kerry Katona revealed to The Mirror that she is pregnant with her fifth child; her first with current fiancé George Kay. The Atomic Kitten starlet and her new hubby are said to be overwhelmed with the news that she is expecting and a spokesperson for the couple told the press, "I can confirm that Kerry Katona is pregnant and both Kerry and George Kay are absolutely delighted with the news."

Kerry has already had four children from two previous relationships, Molly and Lilly-Sue from her four year-marriage to former Westlife singer Brian McFadden, followed by two children to from her troublesome marriage with Mark Croft; Heidi and Maxwell. Each child birth has come at a very different period of the tabloid darling's life, with her first coming during her most successful and rewarding period of her life, and her second set of children arriving at a much more difficult time for her. This time however, Kerry is happy again and back in the place she was ten years ago, and the pregnancy will no doubt make her even happier.

It has been a rocky road for Kerry to travel down to eventually get where she is now, but things are looking good after getting engaged to Kay in April. Although she was forced to file for bankruptcy for a second time in July this year, she has regained some of her earning power by making the move to the West End, where she will star in the lead role as Marilyn Monroe in Norma Jeane The Musical.

Kerry initially found fame as the founding member of the girl group Atomic Kitten, and recently reformed with the rest of the band for ITV's The Big Reunion show. The band will head out on tour as part of the Big Reunion showcase traveling the country later this year, with Five, 911, B*Witched, Liberty X and Honeyz also heading on the road with them.
