Mum-of-four confirms that Twitter baby bump announcement was a hoax
Rumours were buzzing this morning amid reports that Kerry Katona was pregnant with her fifth child after an announcement on her Twitter page.
The seemingly official post from the Kerry Katona account, which has 1, 660 followers, revealed that the former face of Iceland was seven weeks pregnant and was ‘over the moon’.
“Ok Twits, I wouldn’t normally come out and say this cos it’s dead early, but all the BULL**** being written about me in the press that I quit, I’m fat and lazy is CRAP,” the tweet explained in response to her recently quitting a fitness club. “I had to leave as I found out me and Mark are having another baby! OVER THE MOON.” Following tweets also shared that she was hoping for a boy so it would ‘balance out’ her family.
Already mum to Max, 1 and Heidi, 2, with her husband Mark Croft and 7-year-old Lily Sue and Molly, 9, from her relationship with former Westlife singer, Brian McFadden, fans flooded the 29-year-old with congratulation messages.
However, the rumours of her fifth pregnancy were just that – as Kerry’s PR, Sean O’Brien has since confirmed that the announcement via the ‘official’ Kerry Katona social networking page was a hoax.
“She’s not pregnant, it was a bogus Twitter account.” When asked the reason why Kerry had dropped out of the fat club she joined a few weeks back, he blamed it on the weather conditions and explained that she would resume her training soon.
If that wasn’t confirmation enough, the former Atomic Kitten singer was spotted today and laughed off the rumours by stroking her tummy saying, “I’m definitely not pregnant."
