“Get a grip, sweetheart. My kids ordering sushi is not child abuse. It’s not like they’re eating scraps out of the bin. They’re privileged to be having takeaways.”

Kerry has often discussed her parenting and keeps her social media followers updated with her family life.

On Tuesday (October 19), Kerry opened up about expanding her brood and having a sixth baby.

However, she said she is potentially opting for a surrogate for her and fiancé Ryan Mahoney’s first child together.

Speaking on Steph’s Packed Lunch, Kerry said she’s got an appointment today (October 20) about getting her eggs harvested.

She had earlier said: “Ryan hasn’t biologically grown any of his children, he’s eight years younger than me.

“I don’t want to rob Ryan of not having his own child, if that is a route we want to go down, but I don’t want to carry another child.”

He added: “But if it is going to happen, we need to get the ball rolling and start the process.”
