Tina Malone wants another child

Burnley and Pendle Citizen: Tina Malone had a baby with Paul Chase last year Tina Malone had a baby with Paul Chase last year

Tina Malone has said she wants another baby despite turning 51 last month.

The Shameless star raised eyebrows when she gave birth to daughter Flame in December, after a course of IVF treatment.

And now the actress has told the Daily Mirror that she does not want Flame - her baby with personal trainer husband Paul, 31 - to grow up a single child.

Tina, who developed the potentially fatal condition pre-eclampsia and had to have an emergency caesarean after becoming pregnant with Flame, said: "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 per cent. It would be at the end of the year when Flame is one."

The actress, who also has a 32-year-old daughter, added: "It's about how you live, how you treat your body, how you feel."
