Jennifer Ellison Reveals She Is Six Months Pregnant... Despite Being Told Ovarian Cysts Would Prevent Her Conceiving

Jennifer Ellison has revealed that she is six months pregnant - despite being told by medical professionals that she wouldn’t be able to have another baby.

Already a mum to two sons with her husband Robbie Tickle, Jennifer admits in an interview in the new issue of OK! magazine that her third pregnancy came as a shock, after doctors told her that a medical condition would make having another child nearly impossible.

She says: “I have really bad ovarian cysts and the doctors said I wouldn’t be able to conceive again – then this happens!”

Jennifer has spoken in the past about how, following her earlier pregnancies, she was upset by cruel jibes in the media and online about her weight gain, but now admits that she has more pressing things than her appearance to concern herself with .

She explains: “I trained before and lost weight so I can do it again. But, so what? I love being a mum - there are more important things to worry about.”

She goes on to say that at six months pregnant she was looking forward to finding out the sex of her baby, and added she was secretly hoping for another boy to add to her brood.

It sounds like the star’s friends are just as excited as her, as she adds: “My friends are throwing me a ‘gender reveal’ baby shower, it’s where you cut into a cake and the sponge will either be pink or blue, and that’s how you find out the sex.”
