Former singer Kerry Katona has given birth to a baby girl a month early - and just a week after getting married.

The former Atomic Kitten star and her husband Mark Croft, who tied the knot in Gretna Green on Valentine's Day, have named the child Heidi Elizabeth.

"The baby was a little early but that wasn't too much of a surprise," Katona's spokesman Max Clifford said.

Katona, 26, already has two daughters - Molly, five, and Lilly Sue, four, by former husband Brian McFadden.

The couple split up in 2004, and their divorce was recently finalised. Katona and Croft met a year ago and he proposed after three weeks.

Speaking about her pregnancy, the I'm A Celebrity winner admitted she had not enjoyed the experience this time around.

"It's been the worst pregnancy ever," she said.

"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."
