Baby P's Mum Receives 'Marriage Proposals' In Prison

Jennifer Connelly, mother of Baby Peter Getty

The mother of murdered 'Baby P' Peter Connelly is making grotesque boasts of having SIX marriage proposals since being imprisoned.

The Sun reports that Tracey Connelly has bragged about men she does not know writing to her and asking for her hand in marriage.

The newspaper says a friend of Connelly's was told by her:

'I've had some strange letters including six men asking me to marry them. Needless to say I binned them letters!!'

Connelly also complained that prison life was 'slow' and that she had ballooned to 19 stone after gorging on cakes, having learnt to cook.

She also claims she shares a wing with depraved serial killer Rose West at Low Newton Prison, Co Durham.

Connelly was jailed after toddler Peter died from 50 separate injuries in 2007.
