Tina Malone Reveals She Wants Another Baby At 51

Tina Malone has revealed she wants another baby after becoming a mum again at the age of 50 last year.

The former 'Shameless' star underwent IVF treatment to conceive daughter Flame, and now wants another child so that she doesn't grow up as an only child.

However, her husband Paul - who is 20 years her junior - is less keen after Tina developed pre-eclampsia, which can be potentially fatal - and had to have an emergency caesarean.

She told The Mirror: “I have been so lucky and, obviously, if a doctor said ‘absolutely not’ I wouldn’t go against that. I’m not stupid.

“But if the tests said everything was fine, I absolutely would. I would like Flame not to grow up an only child.

“Paul was worried about me, especially when I was ill at the end.

“But seriously, if I’m talking percentages of going for it, I’m about 70%. It would be at the end of the year when Flame is one.

Tina also told Closer magazine that her eldest daughter, 33-year-old Danielle, also has reservations about her undergoing IVF treatment again.

"Danielle was never happy about me going through IVF and getting pregnant at my age, because of the health risks.

"It was a bit of a touchy subject. But ever since Flame was born, she's been the most doting older sister. She calls every day to see how she is. If anything, Flame has brought us closer together and made us stronger."
