Katie Piper is excited about being a mum


Now‘s columnist Katie Piper has been overwhelmed by your goodwill messages about her pregnancy.

‘I’ve received so much support from you all already on Twitter and I
feel so touched I’ve actually screen-grabbed some of your Tweets to
show my baby when he or she is older!’ Katie, 30, confides.

The TV presenterfeared she’d never be a mum because of the all the surgery she’s endured.

‘As a little girl, I always thought I’d have kids, but I wasn’t sure if I could after I was attacked because of the amount of stress my body was put under during my 200-plus operations.

‘That was a scary thought, but lots of women worry they may have difficulties getting pregnant, so it’s such a blessing.

‘I said to Mum the other day: “Just think, I’ll be going to hospital and it won’t be for anything depressing!”

‘I’m still in my size 6 jeans at the mo, but I’m not too worried about my growing bump and my body getting bigger.

‘Of course, I’m a bit scared, too.’
