Denise Welch, Loose Women Presenter, Desperate For A Baby With Lincoln Townley

Denise Welch is hoping that by undergoing IVF treatment she will be able to have a baby with her new partner - at the age of 54.

The Loose Women presenter is desperate to have children with her fiance Lincoln Townley, who is 39 years old and believes it would make their lives complete to have a baby of their own.

Denise and Lincoln were photographed by The Mirror leaving a maternity clinic in Manchester, and seemed to be chatting excitedly at the possibility of becoming parents.

Denise was also seen hugging one of the centre's workers as she left the building.

A source close to Denise told the newspaper: "Denise has told me the only problem with the age difference between her and Lincoln is that they can't have kids. I know Denise would love to be able to give Lincoln a baby and the challenge of coping with a new-born at her age wouldn't faze her at all. But there are all sorts of ways they might be able to do that to make their happiness complete - through IVF, adoption or even surrogacy. "

Denise already has two children Matthew, 22, and Louis, 11, through her earlier marriage to actor Tim Healy. Lincoln also has a 20-year-old son of his own.
