An expectant Kerry Katona has thanked her fans for their messages of support from her hospital bed after her waters broke five weeks early.
She remains at Macclesfield Hospital today (April 11th) after doctors halted her contractions with medication on Wednesday. Medics are still deciding when she will be induced.
A spokesperson told Mail Online: “At present both mum and baby are not in any distress and the longer the onset of labour is delayed the better it is for both of them.”
“Kerry would like to thank everyone for the messages of support and also the doctors and nurses who are providing excellent care.”
Kerry, 27, was believed to be in the middle of filming the final episodes of her controversial MTV show, Crazy In Love, when her contractions began on Wednesday night.
The drama was thought to have been caught on camera even though she had reportedly decided to pull out of the show.
The couple already know the baby is a boy and are planning to call him Max.
Her pregnancy has been plagued with health concerns and rumors of drug-taking and drinking, allegations which she has denied.
Kerry has only been out of hospital for two weeks after doctors feared she was suffering from the potentially fatal condition pre-eclampsia.
However, Kerry was given the all-clear but was admitted to rehab at the end of March to be treated for bipolar disorder and filming for her reality show was suspended.
Her husband Mark, 37, was believed to have taken his heavily pregnant wife to hospital.
The couple, of Warrington, Cheshire, are already parents to one-year-old Heidi.
Kerry is also has two girls with ex-Westlife star Brian McFadden – Molly, six, and Lilly-Sue, five.
