Katie Piper turns 30, feeling lucky to be where she is now


Now‘s columnist Katie Piper is eating for two and indulging her sweet tooth.

‘I turned the big 3-0 on Saturday and threw a big birthday party with a Motown band for my friends and family,’ Katie tells us.

‘It was so much fun.

‘Now I’m pregnant I found the not drinking a bit annoying – I ended up eating cake all night long!

‘After my attack I thought I might not be around to see this day, so I feel lucky just to be alive.

‘I saw my brother Paul, who flew over from the US, for the first time since I announced I’m pregnant, so it was a double celebration.

‘I also attended the Pride Of Britain awards last week.

‘Again, it was one of the most inspiring and heartbreaking nights of my life.’
