PRESENTER Katie Piper has revealed she “would have a third child” despite thinking her daughters wouldn’t want another sibling.
The TV star, who is mum to daughters Belle and Penelope, was discussing sibling rivalry during today’s Loose Women (August 5).
She revealed that she didn’t “feel done” having children yet.
Speaking on how Belle managed when her sister Penelope was born, Katie said: “It was inevitable that it was going to be hard.
“We had Belle first and then three years later I went back to have PP.
“I must admit when I was pregnant, I did feel a little bit guilty – like I was betraying Belle, she was the first grandchild in our family, I put her on this huge pedestal as the child I thought I’d never have.
“So, I was nervous and I did all the classic stuff with the books about becoming a big sister.
“I made the mistake of taking her to the ultrasound and she said, ‘oh it looks nothing like me or you, it looks like an alien.’ Top tip, don’t do that.”
The 37-year-old added: “It was quite sad because when Penelope was born my daughter said, ‘I love her, but how long is she staying? When’s she going back?’
“We often talk about babies and even here on the panel we talk about having other kids and I do think I would be up for it, I don’t necessarily feel done.
“I would have a third child, but I think it’s everyone else around me who wouldn’t want another one.”
Katie added: “Particularly my seven-year-old, I don’t know how she would cope now if we had a baby to deal with.
“She loves the label of being the big sister and PP still refers to herself as the baby so I don’t think she’d want someone else to take that spot.”
Katie recently joined Loose Women as one of the chat show’s new regulars alongside Sunetra Sarker, while Christine Lampard is due back from maternity leave later in the year.
