British singer/TV presenter Myleene Klass was happy when paparazzi caught her with a tissue stuffed up her nose during her pregnancy, insisting she wanted her fans to see the downsides to carrying a child.
The former Hear'Say star was photographed clambering out of a car in February (11) - when she was eight months pregnant with her second daughter, Hero.
She had a paper tissue wedged in her left nostril to stem the blood from a nosebleed - and she has now revealed she urged the snapper to publish the down-to-earth image.
Klass tells Fabulous magazine, "In my second pregnancy, I suffered from terrible nosebleeds. I was getting out of a car with (first daughter) Ava and a pap snapped a picture of me with tissue up my nose.
"I went up to him and he asked me if I wanted him to delete the shot. I told him: 'No, because this is what really happens to women during pregnancy.' I didn't care that I looked a bit stupid. I was more concerned that I didn't have blood dripping down my face in front of my little girl. He was stunned, but I absolutely meant it."
