Kerry Katona admits she smoke while pregnant
(showbizspy.com) - Former 'Atomic Kitten' singer Kerry Katona has revealed that, despite being four months pregnant, she still smokes everyday - and has also carried on drinking.
Katona told Britain's Star Magazine: "I was smoking 20 a day before I was pregnant and I've cut down to one. In the morning, I like a little puff on a fag,"
She also spoke of the people who criticise her for carrying on smoking - despite medical guidelines: "Yeah, they're dead bloody right. But I honestly don't think a couple of puffs are going to do that much damage.
'I had a nicotine patch but it left a mark. I think I've done really well cutting down from 20 to one a day. I think the only times I really smoke is when I've had a drink.
Kerry, 27 who was once diagnosed an alcoholic and had a miscarriage scare in the early stages her pregnancy, was recently snapped smoking a cigarette outside a pub in Warrington, Cheshire - where she reportedly downed four Martinis and a vodka during the same night.
But she insisted: 'It's nonsense. I did have a drink - I had two.'
Of her alcoholism, Katona said: 'I was diagnosed because I drink when I have problems. But if I go out with my mates, I'm fine'.
