Former Atomic Kitten Kerry Katona has given birth to a baby girl less than a week after getting married.

Kerry and her new husband Mark Croft rushed to Warrington General Hospital where their daughter was born four weeks premature.

Her publicist Max Clifford said that "nobody believed Kerry would go full term because she was absolutely huge".

"Mother and baby are doing fine. The baby was a little early but that wasn't too much of a surprise," he said.

"It seems the little one wanted to get out sooner rather than later."

The couple have named their daughter Heidi.

Kerry admitted recently that she had not enjoyed the pregnancy, saying: "It's been the worst pregnancy ever. It's made me want to have my tubes tied, get the coil, go on the Pill, get the injection and get Mark the snip. That's how much I've hated it."

Mark and Kerry were married on Valentine's Day at Gretna Green in a low-key ceremony.

I'm A Celebrity winner Kerry already has two children from her marriage to Westlife singer Bryan McFadden, four-year-old Lilly and five-year-old Molly.
