What did Kate Lawler say?

She told HELLO! magazine: “I have never felt more ready.

“For a lot of my life I did feel pressurised and I wasn’t ready. You have to do what’s right for you. I think I am going to be a much happier person knowing that I did this when I wanted to.”

She said: “This was completely planned. The wedding got cancelled and I wasn’t thinking about a baby at all.”

Kate said when she turned 40 in May, she “suddenly felt grown up” and “like I was ready for something and I didn’t know what it was”.

She added that they “realised we would have to start trying straight away to avoid having a newborn at the wedding” so they did.
