Shameless and CBB star Tina Malone is becoming a mum again – at the age of 54!
The actress has revealed that she and husband Paul plan to welcome their 2nd child together via a surrogate.
The couple are already parents to 3-year-old Flame, and Tina’s also mum to 36-year-old daughter Danielle (from a previous relationship) who recently made her a grandma.
Tina revealed she and Paul wanted a sibling for their little one, and that they planned to choose their baby’s sex.
Expecting the news to get people talking – as her pregnancy with Flame did just a few years ago – Tina’s pre-emptively clapped back to the backlash.
Admitting she doesn’t give ‘two s****’ how people feel about it, she reportedly explained in a video:
“Some will say I am selfish and irresponsible for having another child at 54.
“They will moralise and abuse me – even more so for selecting the sex of our baby – and everyone is entitled to their opinion. But I don’t give two s**** for what they think.
“I am doing this for Flame and for my husband, not just myself. I am healthy, of sound mind, solvent… and a bloody brilliant mother.”
