Kerry Katona wants her 19-year-old daughter to have a baby as she’s ‘worried’ about not being around for her children’s future

Reality TV star Kerry Katona, has expressed concerns over her health and wants her daughter Lilly to become a mum while she’s alive.

Kerry Katona suffers from health anxiety which makes her believe that she will die young.

The mum of five wrote about her concerns in her column for OK! Magazine.

She wrote: “I think about it all the time -I’m so worried about not being here for their future.

“If Lilly told me she was pregnant, I’d want her to have it because I want to experience as much as possible.

“I’m constantly worried about my health. I instantly jump to the worst case scenario. It’s exhausting.”

Kerry Katona has said she wants to be a grandma.

Kerry has five children: Lilly-Sue McFadden, Molly Marie McFadden, Maxwell Mark Croft, Heidi Elizabeth Croft and Dylan-Jorge Rose Kay.

Lilly (aged 19)  is Kerry’s second oldest child with Molly just slightly older at 20-years-old.

Kerry was thinking about Lilly’s future children as the teen was recently on a holiday in Magaluf with female friends.

Kerry said that even though she was FaceTiming her child whilst on the trip her anxiety was high.

Her anxiety stems from a string of health problems that she has faced herself.

Earlier this year the reality TV star was rushed to hospital after she thought she had discovered an ovarian cyst - it was later discovered that the pain she was enduring came from a particularly bad flare up of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

As well as dealing with IBS Kerry has a problem with leg swelling which started after she underwent a breast reduction.

“Even after I explained I had an illness nobody thought to ask me about it or about the medication I was on which was making me that way.
