Former Atomic Kittens singer Kerry Katona posted an April Fools’ Day pic of an ultrasound to Instagram, but fans weren’t impressed
Kerry Katona has apologized after fans slammed her for posting a fake April Fool’s Day pregnancy announcement.
The former Atomic Kitten singer posted a picture of an ultrasound on her Instagram profile.
Before deleting her post, she edited the caption and said, “I fucking knew you guys wouldn’t fucking believe me.”
Fans were furious at the post, with some calling her “insensitive” to the fake ultrasound post.
One follower commented, “Kerry Katona faking pregnancy, weird and insensitive behavior.”
Another added, “Kerry Katona fakes pregnancy for April Fools’ jokes then just hilariously deletes it.”
“Kerry Katona already shows she’s an insensitive fool with a fake pregnancy announcement,” one complained.
“Pretending to be pregnant will NEVER be fun.
According to her rep, the star wasn’t meant to post the picture on her public account.
Kerry’s rep said: “It was an April Fool’s joke for her fiancé Ryan but she accidentally posted it on her public account and not her private one with very close friends.
“Kerry herself is unable to have children due to medical reasons and has been open about it in the past.
“She sincerely apologizes to anyone offended and would never post anything to intentionally offend anyone.”
Kerry is already mom to Lilly-Sue, 19, Molly, 20, Heidi, 15, and Dylan-Jorge, seven, and son Max, 13.
Her daughter Lily previously opened up about the idea of her mother having another baby after Kerry discussed adoption.

She spoke to OK! magazine and was asked about the idea of becoming an older sister again.
When asked what she thought of her mom and fiancé Ryan Mahoney having a baby, she admitted, “Not so thrilled!”
She said: “I love my mum more than anything and she’s a great mum, but I need the pocket money.
“You know what, I would love for Mum and Ryan to have a baby but for now they have a dog and that’s enough for now.”
Kerry had previously said she was considering adoption.
“I think if we were going to have another baby we would go down the surrogacy route, but we’re trying to build an empire,” the singer said.
“I have five kids, we have dogs, I am so busy and I go out quite often.
“I’m 41, maybe we would adopt. I don’t know, but I just can’t imagine being pregnant again.”
