KERRY Katona has confirmed to The Sun that she's frozen her eggs and wants a SIXTH baby.
The 40-year-old and fiancé Ryan Mahoney have spoken about starting their own family together – and she's started taking steps to help kick start the process if they want to in the future.
The former Atomic Kitten singer is already mum to five children – Molly Marie, Lilly-Sue, Heidi Elizabeth, 14, Maxwell Mark, 13, and Dylan-Jorge Rose Kay, seven.
She shares her two eldest with Brian McFadden, her middle son and daughter with Mark Croft and her youngest with the late George Kay.
In a recent tell-all interview with Ulrika Jonsson, she confessed that there is a possibility she could end up having another baby in years to come with her new lover.
She said: “It would be selfish of me to have another child… But I would do it for Ryan. So I’m freezing my eggs and we will see what happens.”
It comes after the star admitted she has been left petrified of dying during childbirth after welcoming Dylan-Jorge into the world in 2014.
She told New Magazine earlier this month: "My last pregnancy was so traumatic.
"I'm one hundred per cent considering surrogacy but we want to move house first and get ourselves sorted."
She continued: "DJ basically died and I almost died.
"I think if I was to get pregnant, it would be selfish of me because if I were to die my children would be left without a mum.
"As much as I love Ryan and Ryan loves me he would never put me through that."
Although Kerry is head over heels with Ryan, her love life hasn't always been plain sailing.
In the same chat with the telly star, Kerry revealed her ex husband George Kay would "spit in her face and threaten to rape her".
Ulrika explained: "George’s mental health deteriorated and his need of drugs increased.
"At one point, he threatened to rape (Kerry) and her mum and harm their daughter.
"Kerry was forced to hide herself and her daughter in a cupboard."
The singer admitted to the Ulrika: "It’s so hard to leave. It’s impossible. Anyone who knows, knows."

Since her heartbreaking split, Kerry found love with Ryan.
The pair, who became engaged in August 2020, first started dating in June 2018, but split four months later.
A year later the lovebirds resparked their flame and have been together ever since.
Kerry was also married to Brian McFadden from 2002 to 2006 and Mark Croft from 2007 to 2011.
