I sued my boss after he paid my £666 wage by dumping pennies on my driveway alongside a rude note

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 15:12

A MECHANIC has sued after he was given his final pay cheque in tens of thousands of oil-covered pennies.

Andreas Flaten took legal action after his former boss dumped 91,500 coins on his drive along with a rude note which said: “F*** you”.

The dispute began after Andreas, 26, walked out of his job at a car repair shop. 

However, Andreas from Fayetteville, Georgia, US only received the bulk payment, which he claims was less than what he was owed, after he contacted officials over the lateness of his final salary. 

He said that the pennies totalled 915 US dollars (about £666) and weighed about 500lbs (227kg). 

His story went viral after photos of the parting shot were uploaded on social media.

But now the US Department of Labour has filed a federal complaint against OK Walker Autoworks and its owner, Miles Walker.

They allege he “violated retaliation prohibition and overtime laws”.

He is seeking $36,971 – over £27,000 – back and other damages following his resignation last year.

The Department of Labour’s Wage and Hour Division also claim Mr Walker published defamatory statements about the worker on the company’s website.


In the lawsuit, the owner is also accused of violating the Fair Labour Standards Act.

It took Andreas nearly seven hours to remove the pennies which were piled on his driveway, according to a press release. 

Steven Salazar, a Wage and Hour Division district director, said: “By law, worker engagement with the US Department of Labour is protected activity. Workers are entitled to receive information about their rights in the workplace and obtain the wages they earned without fear of harassment or intimidation.”

The story came to light when Andreas’ girlfriend Olivia Oxley posted about the driveway discovery.

She said he is “kind of irritated” about the situation, which meant he has had to clean the pennies individually in order to cash them in.

He worked for the money the first time, and now he has to work for his money again so that seems completely backwards to me

She added: “That’s actually not even his whole pay cheque, that was his salary but he was also paid a commission at the end of every month… so he’s definitely still owed money

“He worked for the money the first time, and now he has to work for his money again so that seems completely backwards to me.”

However, the owner of the shop said last March that he didn’t recall dropping the pennies off at his former employee’s home.

“I don’t really remember,” Mr Walker told station WGCL-TV. “It doesn’t matter, he got paid, that’s all that matters.”

Man City star Gabriel Jesus and pregnant girlfriend forced to deny claims they have split in defiant Instagram posts

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 14:56

MANCHESTER CITY striker Gabriel Jesus and his pregnant girlfriend have rubbished claims te yhave split by cuddling up to each other and insisting: “We’re doing fine.”

Well-known Brazilian journalist Leo Dias said on Friday he had been told by sources close to the couple they had called time on their relationship despite pretty influencer Raiane Lima expecting their first child.

INSTAGRAM: RAIANELIMA8Brazilian beauty Raiane insists ‘we’ve never broken up and we’re doing fine’[/caption] INSTAGRAM: DEJESUSOFICIALThe couple are expecting their first child[/caption]

But the footballer and his partner took less than 24 hours to deny any rift with matching social media snaps showing they were still very much an item.

One, which they both posted on their Instagrams, showed Jesus with his arms round pretty Raiane alongside the message ‘My love’ and a heart emoticon.

In another they responded directly to the split claims by writing alongside a second photo showing them lying on their bed: “We’ve never broken up and we’re doing fine.”

Raiane, 21 also posted a selfie of herself stroking her baby bump alongside the caption: “Mummy loves you a lot.”

The stunning Brazilian confirmed last July she was dating 24-year-old Jesus after they were spotted boarding his private jet in Brazil to return to Rio de Janeiro from her native city.

The footballer had travelled to Serra Telhada in the north-east state of Pernambuco to invest in race horses that excel at sprinting short distances.

Around the same time Raiane denied claims she had been romancing a local politician when she met the striker.

She had been linked in local press in her homeland at the time to married Pernambuco state MP and tourism minister Rodrigo Novaes.

But she angrily denied reports they had a fling and that she was only 18.

The pretty Brazilian said when she confirmed she was dating Brazilian international Jesus: “I just want to clear up a few things that gossip sites have been saying.

“First of all I’m 20 and have been over-age for some time now.

“Second I was not dating anyone when I got to know Gabriel.

“Today we are in a relationship, yes, but that’s something that only concerns us.

“We are single, free and anything else said other than that is gossip and cruelty.”

Gabriel announced he was set to become a father for the first time at the end of September last year after scoring the winner in a 1-0 away victory against Chelsea.

He posted a photo of him with his thumb in his mouth looking up to the sky and wrote: “What a day! Very happy for this goal, this very important win for us and for the wonderful news.

“Expecting my first child. A celebration for a more than special moment!”

Mum shares easy way she gets her toddler in the trolley when food shopping and other parents brand her a genius

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 14:13

GETTING groceries is hard – it’s even more difficult when you have a kid with you.

This is where shopping trolleys come in handy, but more often than not it also leaves you with lower back pain from having to bend and pick your small one up.

lenize.fuentes//InstagramThe mum shared her hack on Instagram, where she has over 30 thousand followers[/caption]

The mum-of-three, Lenize Fuentes, knows the struggle and has, luckily, come up with an easy solution.

”Save your back, sis,” she shared the hack on her Instagram which has been liked by almost 240 thousand people.

Instead of doing it the typical way, Lenize insisted you let your kid do the work.

She demonstrated the hack with one of her daughters, who climbed into the trolley whilst the mum had lifted the seat part from behind.

Once the child had successfully entered the trolley, Lenize simply opened the seat and helped the daughter to get comfortable.

Fellow parents were grateful for this tip, with some wishing they had found this earlier.

”The definition of work smarter not harder,” commented one.

”WHAT! OHH S**T!

”I just lifted my 63lb 6 yo into a cart the other day at Target lol.”

While there were those who praised the hack, some viewers were critical, like this one who wrote: ”This is not a hack this is actually very dangerous and why are you doing this?

”Because most places that have shopping carts have signs that strictly prohibit your children from climbing in or on carts! 

”Don’t be lazy and pick your child up and put them in the child seat!,” the person added.

Another person thought: ”letting school age kids sit in the cart.”

”If you can’t lift a 30-40lbs toddler, and that going to blow your back out then you definitely need to start lifting weights,” is how someone else felt about the hack.

Others claimed this was nothing new, with one writing: ”Ok? how did they do it before?

”like dude I thought you were the advanced country.”

Biggest Teen Mom money scandals featuring Catelynn Lowell’s tax debt, Farrah Abraham’s failure to pay rent & more

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 13:57

MONEY problems have plagued the Teen Mom cast, with stars like Catelyn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, Jenelle Evans, Chelsea Houska and more coming under fire or being ordered to pay HUGE sums.

Catelynn and Tyler recently paid off their $535,000 tax lien, but still owe $321,000 to the United States government.

As previously reported by The Sun, Catelynn and Tyler were hit with a federal tax lien for $535,010.97 on November 19, 2019 related to their 2016 and 2017 tax filings.

According to a Michigan court, the lien was paid off as of December 1, 2019.

The pair aren’t in the clear yet, however.

Catelynn and Tyler still owe the government an astounding $321,789.06 for the 2018 year.

The pair aren’t the only Teen Mom stars who have faced tax troubles.

Farrah Abraham, who was initially outspoken about Catelynn and Tyler’s financial woes, has had similar problems.

Amber Portwood and Leah Messer have also had tax troubles in the past.

Other Teen Mom stars have faced money problems unrelated to taxes or the federal government.

Jenelle Evans, Chelsea Houska, and Mackenzie Douthit have struggled financially or faced backlash over perceived finances from fans.

These are the biggest Teen Mom money scandals.

CATELYNN AND TYLER Instagram/Tyler BaltierraThe couple paid off their debt recently, but were hit with more than one[/caption]

Catelynn and Tyler’s remaining $321,789.06 tax lien remains unpaid.

They were hit with the lien in December 2019.

As they worked to pay off the lien, the pair faced backlash from Teen Mom fans for sharing clickbait posts, which some viewed as “insensitive.”

Catelynn often shares links to articles on her Instagram page.

She profits each time someone clicks on the link.

In August 2021, she was slammed as “insulting” for sharing a story implying that she divorced Tyler ahead of the birth of their fourth child.

She was ripped again in April 2021, with fans calling her “disgusting” after she posted a story implying that her oldest daughter Carly died.

The pair have had other ways of making money, too.

Tyler previously flipped and sold homes.

Catelynn recently pursued a career in microblading, but she was slammed for charging too much for her services.

JENELLE EVANS InstagramJenelle’s questionable post came after her clothing line was shuttered[/caption]

Jenelle no longer appears on Teen Mom, but that hasn’t kept her away from public controversy.

The MTV alum was slammed in December for sharing a “scam” giveaway with fans.

The drama kicked off after Jenelle took to Instagram, posing among several products like bikes, backpacks, and a doughnut pillow.

She captioned the post: “HUGE GIVEAWAY. FOR $4000!! 150 Winners!! 1 Winner Gets prepaid visa card with $500 149 Winners get products and gift cards worth more than $4000.”

The post was shared on Reddit, where fans held nothing back.

One user commented: “I hate these scams and feel sorry for the bozos who think they are winning anything from Jenelle…”

Another added: “everything looks so cheap.”

A third Reddit user commented: “Literally who would want her to endorse their products?”

The post came shortly after Jenelle’s clothing line was dropped – news she shared in an emotional TikTok video.

MACKENZIE DOUTHIT Youtube/Life with MackenzieMAckenzie Douthit sparked money concerns after she revealed she lives in a trailer[/caption]

Mackenzie hasn’t spoken much about her finances, nor does she like to flash money in front of fans.

Still, many have speculated that she may be struggling, especially after seeing her living situation.

A year after the star packed up her life and her children and headed from Oklahoma to Florida, she revealed that she and husband Josh McKee were living in a trailer park.

The reality star revealed that she was living in the trailer park after being kicked out of her Sarasota rental home.

She explained in an Instagram Video: “So this is where I’m living.

“In Sun and Fun Trailer Park Sarasota, it’s actually like a vacation spot and it’s super awesome.”

Mackenzie went on to explain that as her lease came to an end, she thought she would be able to stay for a few additional months on a short-term contract.

Her landlord informed her that someone else would be taking over and she needed to be out by the end of October.

With no other options for short-term places to stay, she and Josh turned to the trailer park which she noted is “ten minutes” from her kids’ school.

FARRAH ABRAHAM FacebookFarrah Abraham was ordered to pay a massive sum after she was accused of not paying rent on her now-closed boutiques[/caption]

Although Farrah was outspoken and shadey after news broke that Catelynn and Tyler had been hit with a tax lien, the star has had money troubles of her own.

In May 2021, she was ordered to pay almost $700,000 in unpaid rent on her two defunct Texas boutiques.

Farrah and her company F&S by Farrah, Inc were sued back in February 2019 for $101,212.50 after the reality star allegedly stopped paying rent when her Lakeway, Texas stores – Furnished by Farrah and Sophia Laurent Children’s Boutique – closed their doors.

The Sun exclusively reported that a judge ordered the former Teen Mom OG star to pay $673, 205.72.

The landlord, FHF I Oakes at Lakeway, filed a motion for traditional summary judgement on April 2, 2021.

In the court documents, which were obtained by The Sun, the landlord claimed Farrah breached two contract agreements.

The landlord asked for $485,805.47 for one lease agreement, set to end in July 2021, and $25,458.36 for another.

The Plaintiff also alleged that they had costs from re-leading, which included $13,150.93 in tenant improvements and $16,067.85 in commissions.

The landlord requested a whopping $101,514.40 in liquidated damages, which is the amount the parties previously agreed to if there is a breach of contract.

The battle between Farrah and the landlord got ugly for a period, with the former MTV star’s lawyer telling the landlord that she has “no intentions on making any further payments under either lease agreement,” according to documents.

CHELSEA HOUSKA InstagramChelsea Houska and Cole DeBoer were sued for millions[/caption]

Chelsea and husband Cole DeBoer were sued for $3 million after allegedly witholding money they made from social media promotions.

The former Teen Mom star, her husband, her company C&A Enterprises and The William Gerard Group were sued for breach of contract by the consulting company Envy in April 2020.

As Without a Crystal Ball first reported, the company claimed that it entered into. acontract with The William Gerard Group in 2015 to provide consulting services to Chelsea and Cole.

They entered a contract in 2016, and children Aubree, Watson, Layne, and Chelsea’s father Randy were included in the contract.

Envy was brought on to work as a “consultant to negotiate appearance, endorsement, licensing, royalty and television agreements and related contracts” from 2015 through 2019.

The court papers claim that Chelsea and Cole “failed to pay any of the contractually required fees.”

They were supposed to pay Envy 35 percent of all fees or royalties for domestic deals and 40 percent for foreign deals.

The court papers claimed that Chelsea and Cole “breached their contracts by directing certain Brands to directly pay Houska, DeBoer, one of the other Shared Clients, and/or other persons or entities to avoid paying Envy Licensing Fees.”

Chelsea and Cole also “both failed to perform, without any cause or reason, many of their responsibilities to the Brands.

“This included, but is not limited to Bombay Hair Wand, Carseat Canopy, Daniel Wellington, Diff, Fab Fit Fun, Highway3, Kitsch, Kitsch Hats, Loving Tan, One Memory Lane, Perfekt Beauty, Profile Sanford, Sintillia, Sparkling Organics Sipp, Sugar Bear Hair, Teami Blends, and Timeless Organics.”

Their alleged failing to meet their contractual obligations caused them to “forfeit certain fees upon which Envy was entitled to receive.”

The company sued Chelsea and Cole for $3 million.

Chelsea, Cole, and the other defendants in the lawsuit hit back with one of their own alleging that Envy withheld $150,000 from them.

They denied allegations against them and claimed they “do not owe any payments to Envy.”

Chelsea also claimed: “No agreements exists with regard to Chelsea’s children.”

AMBER PORTWOOD Instagram/realamberlportwood1__Amber Portwood was ordered to pay a large sum un “unpaid homeowner’s association fees”[/caption]

In December 2021, Amber was ordered to pay more than $1,000 in “unpaid homeowner’s association fees” amid her battle with ex Andrew Glennon for custody of their son, James.

Documents obtained by The Sun showed that Amber was hit with the default judgement of $1,232.50 for the plaintiff Geist Harbours Property Owners Association after she failed to appear in court on the lawsuit.

The reality star was served in August 2021.

She was sued for failing to pay unpaid property assessment fees.

The judgement included the assessment due, as well as late fees, other charges and attorney fees.

LEAH MESSER Instagram / Leah MesserLeah Messer faced tax troubles of her own on a state and federal level[/caption]

In 2020, Leah was ordered to pay over $31,000 in state taxes.

At the time she was struggling to pay off $123,000 in federal taxes.

A West Virginia court exclusively confirmed to The Sun that Leah was hit with a state tax lien totaling $31,510 on July 24, 2020.

The clerk confirmed that the Teen Mom 2 star has not paid off the debt.

The debt comes after The Sun reported that Leah was hit with a federal tax lien for $123,841 in 2019.

It was previously reported that the mom of three mades $400,000 per season of Teen Mom, so her money troubles were shocking to fans.

She is also an accomplished author.

I think the ‘Times Square Killer’ who dismembered my mom is my FATHER – and I want a DNA test

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 13:56

A WOMAN whose mom was killed and decapitated by the Time Square Killer believes there’s a possibility he is her father and wants a DNA test to find out the truth.

Jennifer Weiss, 43, has been working with authorities in Bergen County, New Jersey, for years to help identify further victims of Richard Cottingham, who claims to have killed between 80 and 100 people in an 18-year spree.

YouTubeJennifer Weiss and Richard Cottingham during a prison visit[/caption] Her mother Deedeh Goodarzi

Weiss’ own mother was among the most infamous of Cottingham’s kills, earning him the nickname The Torso Killer after he tortured and beheaded her and an unidentified 16-year-old girl in a Times Square hotel.

The body of Deedeh Goodarzi was found in a burning room on December 2, 1979, with a firefighter making the gruesome discovery that the remains were lacking heads when he attempted to give mouth to mouth.

The skull of the Iranian immigrant, who had been working as a high-end escort in Times Square, was never found.

“It’s possible but not probable because of the field of work she was in,” Weiss exclusively told The Sun of Cottingham being her father.

“But because it’s possible, it’s unsettling.

“Although we haven’t done a paternity test in the court of law, my whole feeling on it is still the same because it’s possible.”

Weiss was given up for adoption by Goodarzi when she was less than two weeks old and there was no information given on her biological father.

Adopted by a New Jersey family, she found out the truth about her mom’s death when she was 24.

First writing letters to now 75-year-old Cottingham in prison, she began to visit him in 2017 and has since met with her mom’s killer more than 30 times.

She says that she does so to help bring out the truth about his other crimes and find justice for her mother and other victims.

When questioning Cottingham about the murders, he reportedly told Weiss that he had known Goodarzi for two years before he killed her, leading to her questions about whether or not he could be her father.

“If I was to pursue it in the court of law, I’d have to take him to court and do it legally,” Weiss explained.

She said that she has hoped Bergan County authorities will help her in organizing the test after she has worked with the prosecutor’s office in getting further information from Cottingham about his victims.

DNA TEST

While he has said that he killed dozens of women, when Cottingham was eventually caught in the early 1980s, he was only charged and convicted with the death of five known victims.

Over the last four decades, he has admitted to a further six murders, pleading guilty to the killing of two teenagers in the 1970s as recently as April 2021.

Weiss said that she hopes a DNA test would not only prove once and for all whether or not Cottingham is her father but that it could be used to see if he has any other children apart from the three he had with his wife.

“We put his sample on the system we could see if I could be related or see if there’s other children that could be related. And you know, that’s just a whole other revelation,” she said.

While Weiss would like to put the mystery to bed, she told The Sun that she is more interested in working to identify more victims and give families justice decades down the line.

“It would settle things for me, but it’s not on top of my list,” she said.

“It was never on my list until he said he’d been hanging around with Deedeh for a couple of years.

Iit’s a priority, but pretty low on the list. Nothing in my life will change.

“I’m still a great person and finding out that detail wouldn’t change who I am.”

‘MORE VICTIMS IDENTIFIED’

Weiss told The Sun that she already knows of other victims of Cottingham’s but that the slow pace of the official process means they have not yet been made public.

“I believe that there are other victims that were decapitated,” Weiss claimed.

‘You just haven’t heard about them yet because we haven’t had the chance to bring them to life, but they’re in the lineup, for sure.

“It’s an unusual thing to do to someone,” she continued.

“But I think he was. He had done it many times before.

“It’s just the public doesn’t know that yet. I know it. But the public doesn’t.

“And that’s what I want. I want everyone to know the other women he killed and what he did to them.

“I have had contact with victims, family members,” Weiss added.

“And that’s a really good feeling.

“It doesn’t come too often because these cases are so old, and most of the families are dead.

“But it’s the children of the victims that have reached out and said that they were grateful for what I was doing.

“If we can work together, we could get it done quicker.”

COTTINGHAM CAUGHT

Cottingham managed to avoid detection until 1980 more than a decade after his first known murder – the killing of 29-year-old mother-of-two Nancy Vogel who was found naked and strangled in her car.

He only admitted to this killing in 2010.

Scouting for victims around Times Square, Cottingham worked a 3pm to 11pm shift in a health insurance company in Manhattan while living with his wife and three children in New Jersey.

He didn’t leave any evidence at crimes scenes to connect the murders, leaving authorities unaware they were dealing with a serial killer.

The murderer was eventually arrested in 1980 after his wife filed for divorce and his killing spree appeared to ramp up

Cottingham was caught in the act in a hotel in New Jersey in May 1980 after the tortured screams of one of his victims alerted staff.

He had killed a woman in the very same hotel just over two weeks before.

Cottingham is serving a life sentence with no hope of parole in the New Jersey State prison.

It is believed the actual death toll of his murderous rampage will never be fully known or verified.

His story is explored in the Netflix documentary “Crime Scene: The Times Square Torso Killer” released last week.

I would have chained my daughter Ashli Babbitt to a chair if I’d known she’d go to the Capitol riot and get killed

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 13:54

ASHLI Babbitt’s mother said that she would have “chained her to a chair” if she’d known she was going to get killed at the Capitol riot.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Micki Witthoeft said her daughter had spent the holidays last year in Cabo and she was unaware Babbitt planned to attend the Donald Trump rally in Washington, DC, on January 6.

Alex Kent for The US SunAshli Babbitt’s mother called her daughter a ‘patriot’[/caption] APBabbitt was killed by a police officer during last year’s Capitol riot[/caption]

“If I knew she was going to be killed, I would’ve chained her to a chair,” Witthoeft said.

“But I would never talk my daughter out of doing something she believed in. She had a right to be at the rally,” she added.

She said that she believed her daughter, who was shot by a police officer as Trump supporters broke into the Capitol building last year, was a “proud patriot,” who was killed while “exercising her first amendment right.”

Witthoeft gathered outside Capitol buildings with friends on Thursday and held a picture of her daughter as she claimed that the cop who shot Babbitt should be “held accountable.”

Babbit, 35, was among the hundreds of people who swarmed the Capitol on January 6 in an attempt to prevent Joe Biden from being certified as president.

She was the only person killed by a cop during the chaos.

Three others died of medical emergencies during the rush. 

Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick also died the following day after he was assaulted by two men during the attack.

A medical examiner said he died of natural causes, however.

BABBITT’S FAMILY WANTS ANSWERS

Since her daughter’s death last year, Witthoeft has said she wants answers and the family announced it would sue the Capitol police for $10million in damages.

It came after police chiefs said the cop who shot Babbitt, who they initially were not identifying, would not face prosecution.

Lieutenant Michael Leroy Byrd, 53, came forward in an interview last August and named himself as the officer involved.

Witthoeft said that she misses her daughter and wants to see Byrd face some consequences.

“I love and miss my daughter. This country needs to stand up for my daughter,” Witthoeft said.

Michael Byrd needs to be held accountable.”

Wearing American flag sunglasses, Witthoeft prayed as she stood with her daughter’s picture on Thursday.

“Jan 6 Patriots. God has his hands on you. Don’t lose faith,” the group said.

“There’s so much wrong in our country … Lord, please just show us the way.”

Witthoeft added that there was “no insurrection in my daughter’s heart or in the hearts of anyone there that day.”

Babbit was shot in the chest by Byrd as she attempted to climb through a broken window in a door within the Capitol building to get closer to lawmakers voting to certify Joe Biden’s presidential win inside.

Video footage captured the sound of the gunshot and showed the woman crumpling to the floor from multiple angles.

After the shot was fired, a protester can be heard shouting “shots fired” as others ask the officers to “stop.”

The officer was put on leave immediately after the riot as the Justice Department opened an investigation into the shooting. 

Babbitt was an Air Force vet with 14 years in the service, during which she did four tours of duty.

She was a high-level security official throughout her time in service.

‘I SAVED COUNTLESS LIVES’

The officer who shot Babbitt had been in law enforcement for 28 years before the Capitol riot.

Byrd joined the Capitol Police in 1993 and has been regularly assigned to the Speaker’s Lobby, the highly restricted waiting area behind the House chamber that Babbitt and others were attempting to breach

“I know that day I saved countless lives,” Byrd said in an interview with NBC News.

“I know members of Congress, as well as my fellow officers and staff, were in jeopardy and in serious danger. And that’s my job.”

It came just three days after the U.S. Capitol Police Department announced they would not discipline him.

“I tried to wait as long as I could,” Byrd added.

“I hoped and prayed no one tried to enter through those doors. But their failure to comply required me to take the appropriate action to save the lives of members of Congress and myself and my fellow officers.”

When asked about the Republicans who’ve criticized him, Byrd responded, “I hope they understand I did my job.”

Mrs Hinch gives tour of her sprawling new Essex farm house, and reveals plans to make it even bigger

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 13:53

MRS Hinch has splashed out on a stunning five-bedroom Essex farmhouse that she has loved since she was 11 years old.

And while she has been quick to show off the grounds of the property, the majority of the interior has remained a mystery to Hinchers until now.

instagramMrs Hinch has given fans a tour of her sprawling new Essex home[/caption] F&FThe cleanfluencer announced the move earlier this week[/caption] instagramShe showcased the ‘Disney’ style staircase and landing[/caption]

The cleanfluencer, real name Sophie Hinchliffe, took to her Instagram stories on Friday where she gave fans a tour of her sprawling new abode, revealing that she has plans to make it even bigger.

Captioning a snap of the upstairs hallway, the mum-of-two wrote: “I’ve taken a few pics to share guys as promised along with my inspo pics I’ve saved.

“This is the landing it splits off in two directions which reminds me of a Disney film, I love it so much.”

She next shared a photo of the ‘drop down passages’ in the hallway where Ronnie likes to play hide and seek, telling viewers that the carpet ‘feels amazing.’

Next up on the tour was Ronnie’s enormous bedroom, where Sophie already has plenty of plans in place for her eldest.

“I can’t wait to get started in here!” she wrote, “We have decided to have a farmland wall mural painted on both walls for Ron!”

She added: “Dad and I are also making Ron a wooden barn headboard so his bed will hopefully look like part of the wall.”

The cleaning guru revealed that her spaniel Henry will once again have his own room although she isn’t sure that he’ll ‘appreciate the view.

Sophie next shared a snap of the main bedroom which she will share with husband Jamie, and it’s only going to get bigger.

She wrote: “The window will be replaced with double doors because the view is so incredible that we have planned to add a timber frame balcony!”

The bedroom has two interconnecting rooms for ‘his and hers’ spaces, with Jamie planning to use it as an Arsenal shrine, while Soph will fill hers with clothes and cleaning supplies.

The mum went on to share her bohemian inspired guest-bathroom plans as well as transforming the ‘piano room’ into a snug, before showcasing her ‘favourite’ spot at the top of stairs.

Ending the tour, she wrote: “I can’t wait to make this beautiful house a home for us.
“Home always has been everything to me so it does feel a little daunting but it’s an incredible feeling at the same time…Hinch farm, I’m ready.”

Mrs Hinch previously revealed that she had been forced to move somewhere more secluded following a secret war with her neighbours.

The family bought the property a couple of months ago but have been unable to share details of it until security measures were put in place.

The detached white front property has perfectly manicured lawns that circle the home.

It boasts large open rooms with bay windows and French doors that lead onto the patio.

Sophie, who gave birth to her second son Lennie in May 2021, is currently living between the two homes before she makes the move fully.

Martin Lewis issues warning to Brits who could be duped out of their cash by making same scam email and text mistake

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 13:19

MARTIN Lewis has warned that Brits are making the same mistake when it comes to scam emails and texts – and it could cost them.

He has told anyone getting scam messages to ignore them rather than actively unsubscribe, as it could put them in a position where fraudsters have access to their info.

Martin said “DON’T UNSUBSCRIBE” as the scammer will then have access to your details

Many Brits will understandably find scam messages annoying, if not worrisome.

So an option to remove themselves from receiving the unsolicited notices seems like the best route to go down.

But Martin Lewis has said you shouldn’t click the option in the email to unsubscribe or reply to the text with whatever it’s told you will remove you from the database.

That’s because doing so will only let the fraudsters know that they definitely can reach you on that address or number as you’ve just used it.

He gave his warning in a tweet responding to fans who had come across scams pretending to be the money mogul himself.

Martin said: “DON’T CLICK UNSUBSCRIBE.”

Most read in Money OFF GRID UK's loneliest holiday home with no gas, electric or TOILET on sale for £550k BACK ON TRACK I cleared £5,000 debt in just 10 months - how you can do it too BILL HELP Thousands of families can apply for up to £600 cash - how much can you claim NOW SOFA SO BAD My new £1,600 sofa looks like it's years old - and DFS told me to fix it myself WHAT THE CLUCK You’ve been ordering your Nando’s all wrong - five tricks to save you £21 WARM UP How much does it cost to leave your central heating on all night?

His urgent warning came as one fan shared the email they had received that claimed to be Martin Lewis offering a “revolutionary way to survive financially”.

“That just lets the scammers know they’ve hit an active email address,” Martin said in the tweet.

“The same applies to scam texts, don’t reply stop, it just tells them the number works.”

Instead of clicking anything in the email or text, he urged fans to forward any scam material to report@phishing.gov.uk.

If you’re still worried about the content, then deleting it from your phone or device altogether will be a more helpful protection too.

Martin Lewis’ MoneySavingExpert team has even warned that your number may also be sold to another firm which could send more spam if you do reply, so it’s important to take the right steps.

Their advice was to initially be careful with who you give your number or email to when filling in online forms.

You shouldn’t publically advertise it somewhere like Facebook or Twitter if you want to void the unsolicited messages too.

It wouldn’t be the first time the Martin has tried to look out for his fans, but sometimes there’s nothing he can advise – the financial guru was left shaking and almost in tears after being unable to help single mum hit by sky high energy bills.

Though he has also urged fans to check their tax codes and steer clear of “danger debt” lately, in attempt to help others in sticky situations.

Radio 1’s Matt Edmondson reveals he’s been to ‘hell and back’ as he announces birth of second daughter

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 13:18

RADIO 1 host Matt Edmonson has told how he has been “through hell and back” welcoming his second child into the world.

The hilarious broadcaster, 35, opened up on the birth of his second baby girl as he praised his “brilliant and brave” wife and NHS staff.

matthewedmondson/InstagramRadio 1 DJ Matt Edmonson has revealed the first adorable snap of his second child, Willow Mae[/caption] InstagramThe broadcaster, 35, said he and wife Bryony went ‘to hell and back’ welcoming the tot into the world[/caption]

Matt, who fronts a Radio 1 weekend show with Saturdays singer Mollie King, uploaded a shot of his adorable newborn to Instagram.

The cute image showed the tot sweetly smiling in her sleep as she snuggled in a striped baby grow and multi-coloured blanket, and stayed snug in a knitted hat.

Alongside, Matt wrote: “Introducing Willow Mae Edmondson.

“What a week…We’ve been to hell and back, but baby Willow is here and she’s magic.

“Bryony was indescribably brilliant and brave, and is now doing well and resting.

“We’re home and safe and hunkering down for a few weeks.”

Talking of his firstborn, the comedian added: “Ivy is in love.

“Thank you to the brilliant NHS staff at Lewisham Hospital who got us through it all- they were stretched so far, but worked so hard so that we didn’t suffer.”

Matt’s celebrity pals were quick to react, with fellow BBC broadcaster Laura Whitmore writing: “Congrats ❤❤❤xxx.”

His close pal and co-host Mollie wrote: “Congratulations guys, she’s gorgeous! ❤,” while broadcaster Dermot O’Leary commented: “Ah, Congrats bud x”

BABY NEWS JOY

The latest addition to their family has arrived a little late, after Matt previously revealed their baby was due on Christmas Day.

Talking on ITV’s Lorraine, he said: “Holly and Ivy for Christmas would be great.|”

Talking of his firstborn he added: “Ivy came three and a half weeks early, as I was about to film The Xtra Factor.

“So I’m assuming this one is coming on Christmas Day, but it could happen any time now.”

He and other half Bryony tied the knot in 2013.

At the time of the chat last year, in his typically joking style, he added: “It’s a girl!

“We’ve got a negotiation going on still about names.

“I’ve mixed up my list for children’s names and dog names and now I can’t remember what was for a child and what was for a dog.

“We’ve already got a dog but you’ve always got to have a list of potential names just in case.”

‘LIFE CHANGING DIAGNOSIS’

The broadcaster’s incredible news comes after he opened up about his cyclothymia diagnosis last month, calling the moment he was diagnosed “life-changing”.

Matt first revealed the details of his mental and behavioural disorder in January, but recently penned a lengthy Instagram post about the condition.

Cyclothymia is typically a lesser-known condition which can cause drastic mood changes, and is often linked to bipolar disorder.

The star told his fans on November 2 that he’s experienced “periods where I felt incredibly low”.

He wrote: “After years of struggling, simply getting the label Cyclothymia placed on how I was feeling was life changing.

“It helped me understand that if I could spot myself going ‘up’ or ‘down’ I could do something to intercept it.”

Matt concluded: “I’m planning to chat a bit more about Cyclothymia in the future, I’ll keep you posted”.

Who was Sinead O’Connor’s son Shane and how did he die?

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 13:15

A HEARTBROKEN Sinead O’Connor has tweeted a moving tribute after the tragic news that her 17-year-old son Shane has died.

The 55-year-old tweeted a beautiful message announcing the teenagers tragic passing, saying: “My baby. I love you so much. Please be at peace:”

17-year-old Shane O’Connor was found dead on Friday January 7 Who was Shane O’Connor?

Shane is the son of Sinead, an Irish singer-songwriter, and Donal Lunny, an Irish folk musician and producer.

The pair split shortly after Shane was born.

Shane was also one of Sinead’s four children – Jake Reynolds, Roisin Waters and Yeshua Francis Neil Bonadio.

He was last seen in Tallaght, South Dublin, on Friday night, as police were alerted to his disappearance.

Police had previously launched an appeal for assistance finding Shane with Sinead tweeting: “Shane, your life is precious. God didn’t chisel that beautiful smile on your beautiful face for nothing.

“My world would collapse without you. You are my heart. Please don’t stop it from beating. Please don’t harm yourself. Go to the Gardai and let’s get you to hospital.

“This is a message for my son, Shane. Shane, it’s not funny anymore all this going missing. You are scaring the crap out of me.

“Could you please do the right thing and present yourself at a Gardai station. If you are with Shane please call the Gardai for his safety”.

How did he die?

Sinead and her family were reportedly concerned about Shane’s mental health, as he has been admitted to Tallaght Hospital on suicide watch.

The local police were alerted after he went missing from the hospital.

Sinead took to social media to threaten the hospital with a “lawsuit” if “anything happens to my son”.

She wrote: “Like, how has a seventeen-year-old traumatised young person WHO WAS ON SUICIDE WATCH in Tallaght Hosptial’s Lynn Ward been able to go missing??? 

“Hospital of course so far refusing to take any responsibility. Anything happens to my son on their watch? Lawsuits. 

“I want to know why Lynn Ward at Taillight hospital who were supposed to have HCA’s supervise my child 24/7 have managed to let him out of their grasp this morning when 7 days ago he made two severe suicide attempts.”

Unfortunately, his body was found on Friday, leaving his family devastated by the news.

Police today confirmed the news with a spokesman saying: “Following the recovery of a body in the Bray area of Wicklow on Friday, 7th January 2022, a Missing Person Appeal in respect of Shane O’Connor, 17 years, has been stood down.”

What has Sinead said?

After the news of Shane’s tragic death, Sinead tweeted: “My beautiful son, Nevi’im Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, the very light of my life, decided to end his earthly struggle today and is now with God.

“May he rest in peace and may no one follow his example. My baby. I love you so much. Please be at peace:”

She also later tweeted a Bob Marley song which she dedicated to Shane: “This is for my Shaney. The light of my life. The lamp of my soul. My blue-eye baby.

“You will always be my light. We will always be together. No boundary can separate us.”

Jake Paul hints at MMA switch as YouTuber shares video of ‘1st day training kicks’ in blow to Tommy Fury fight hopes

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 13:10

JAKE PAUL has continued to tease a move into the mixed martial arts world by practising leg kicks.

The YouTuber turned boxer recently claimed he’d retire from the sweet science and sign a one-fight deal with the UFC if president Dana White meets his demands.

And judging from his latest training footage, The Problem Child appears to seriously be considering a switch to MMA.

On Friday night, Paul shared a four-second clip of him drilling low kicks to his Twitter and Instagram pages.

His accompanying caption read: “1st day training kicks. Doubted every step of the way.. but kick down the doors of the doubters. @bellatormma @pflmma.”

Followers of the social media sensation were quick to comment, with one saying: “Those are actually not that bad.”

Another said: “I have to be honest, if he is new to throwing kicks then this is actually pretty good. He’s athletic.”

And another said: “He don’t look that bad.”

One added: “Props if he steps in the cage to scrap.”

PFL featherweight Brendan Loughnane chimed in: “Not a bad kick tbf.”

And UFC middleweight contender Derek Brunson said: “Not bad son!”

Paul’s revealing of his low kick game came just days after Bellator president Scott Coker revealed he’d consider signing the 24-year-old if he’s serious about competing inside the cage.

He told MMA Junkie: “If you want to come into MMA, we would gladly do it.

“Think about this: He’s not saying, ‘I’m going to go train here. I’m going to go train there.’

“He’s going to come to one of the best gyms in the planet, where Khabib is, where Daniel Cormier is still training, where Cain Velasquez is teaching there now, and he’s going to go into an environment that he is going to flourish, and he has a wrestling background already.

“He has great striking, obviously. You’ve seen it, and so this guy is just going to get better and better and better.”

Paul’s apparent pivot to MMA could be a huge blow to rival Tommy Fury, who was forced out of their December grudge match due to injury and illness.

But the Love Islander won’t chase Paul if he truly wants to fight in MMA, saying during an appearance on The MMA Hour: “The fact of the matter is there’s unfinished business here and this fight needs to take place, because how can he be serious about fighting if he’s never fought a boxer before?

BT SPORTJake Paul’s apparent pivot to MMA could be a huge blow to rival Tommy Fury[/caption]

“How can he be serious about this? He keeps referring to the UFC.

“If he wants to go and fight in the UFC, don’t put on a pair of boxing gloves again and go and fight in the UFC.

“Don’t call yourself a boxer if you’ve never ever fought one.”

Kanye West dating actress Julia Fox ‘to get under ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s skin’

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 13:07

KANYE West has been flaunting his new girlfriend Julia Fox to allegedly get under the skin of ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.

In a photoshoot released on January 7, Julia announced her new relationship with Kanye West shortly after her split with husband Peter Artemiev.

GettyKanye West is reportedly flaunting his new relationship simply to bug ex Kim Kardashian[/caption] INTERVIEWKanye debuted his relationship with Julia Fox in a photoshoot for Interview magazine[/caption]

Julia, 31, recently went on Instagram Live to answer fan questions as her romance with Kanye, 44, heated up.

But a source close to the pair claimed Kanye was only dating the Uncut Gems star to bug Kim.

“It’s a desperate play for attention. There’s no other explanation when he chooses … [Fox] to go public with,” the source told Page Six.

“He publicly fights for his family back, and then he’s linked to all these different girls. It’s very strange,”

The rapper has previously called for his ex to “run back to” him and it seems Kim agreed with the source about Kanye’s attempts to get her attention.

A source told The Sun exclusively that Kim feels the public dates with Julia are a “desperate attempt to make her jealous.”

“Kim thinks it’s comical Kanye went from begging her to come back to showcasing his new girl all over the city within days. 

“She knows it’s not serious and is just typical hijinks from Kanye,” a source told The Sun. 

“Kim thinks it’s another desperate attempt to make her jealous. She honestly doesn’t care, she’s very over him at this point so his little game isn’t working. 

Julia also appeared to copy some of Kim’s fashion choices.

From sheer black lace unitards with keyhole cutouts to diamond mesh skirts to black leather trench coats, Julia frequently looks like Kim’s style clone on the red carpet.

As Julia wrote in her INTERVIEW piece, she and Kanye dined, after a few Miami dates, in New York City at Carbone.

The restaurant also happens to be a favorite of the rapper’s estranged wife.

As of January 2022, Julia has an estimated net worth of about $6.5M.

Kim is currently enjoying the start to her 2022 with new man Pete Davidson in The Bahamas as their relationship continues to get more serious following her high-profile divorce.

Kim filed for divorce from Kanye – whom she shares four kids with – in early 2021 after less than seven years of marriage.

How to get the best travel protection as new Covid restrictions are introduced tomorrow

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 12:59

TRAVEL rules are set to change tomorrow as the UK eases its Covid restrictions.

Travellers who previously had to take a PCR test two days after arriving in England will now be able to use a cheaper lateral flow instead.

GettyGetting the right travel insurance is vital to ensuring you’re not left out of pocket should the unexpected occur[/caption] What changes are coming into force?

Since yesterday, Brits have been able to return to the UK without needing to take a Covid test to enter the country, provided they are vaccinated.

The isolation rule – which required arrivals to isolate until they received their day two test result – has also been scrapped.

And from tomorrow, the day two test rules will change – and families will be able to save hundreds.

From 4am on Sunday, Brits will be able to take a lateral flow test instead of a PCR test, with the former much cheaper.

While the NHS lateral flow tests can’t be used for travel purposes, they cost around £22 from private medical firms – while PCRs are at least £60 more.

The government website states: “If you qualify as fully vaccinated for travel to England, and you will arrive in England after 4am, Sunday 9 January, you can choose to take a lateral flow test instead of a PCR test after you arrive in England.

“If you qualify as fully vaccinated for travel to England, and you will arrive in England after 4am, Sunday 9 January, you can choose to take a lateral flow test instead of a PCR test after you arrive in England.”

However, while travellers don’t have to isolate while they wait for their result, they will have to take a PCR test if it comes back positive.

The website continues: “If you take a lateral flow test and test positive, you will need to self-isolate and take a free PCR test.”

What can I do to get the best Covid holiday protection? 1. Purchase travel insurance

Buying travel insurance before jetting off is vital to ensuring you’re not left out of pocket should things go south.

Without the right policy, you could be left with thousands of pounds worth of emergency expenses.

So, make sure your police includes “disruption cover” to help plug costs caused when the unexpected happens.

2. Check if your cover includes spots banned by the UK government

Only a few insurance providers offer this.

Consumer protection group Which? suggest that Barclays, Churchill, Direct Line, HSBC and Nationwide have the best Covid cover.

These providers should pay out if you’re forced to cancel your trip due to changes in Foreign Office advice.

They should also cover you should a lockdown come into force or if you test positive for Covid-19.

3. Bring your insurance policy details with you

If anything goes wrong, you’ll need to know your policy number and the insurer’s emergency assistance number to get help.

If going away for longer than a short stay then check the maximum duration allowed in your policy.

4. Get vaccinated

Getting vaccinated is the best way to provide protection against the virus.

It’s also the best way to score good cover as some insurers may choose not to pay out claims if you’re unvaccinated – with the exception being those who are medically exempt.

RHOSLC Mary Cosby’s ‘real reason’ for skipping the reunion – and why it could get her fired

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 12:57

REAL Housewives of Salt Lake City’s Mary Cosby did not attend the season three reunion because she was reportedly scared to face the music over her many controversies.

Mary’s absence came after she was also accused of racist behavior, “running a cult” and “encouraging suicide” to a fan just last week.

An insider claimed Mary, 49, was missing from the reunion and completely bailed because she “did not want to confront the controversy surrounding her this season.”

“She was terrified of getting grilled about her ‘racist’ comments made toward Jennie [Nguyen] and Jen [Shah],” the insider told Page Six.

“She also did not want to discuss the accusations that she runs a cult.”

Her no-show means she could be fired from the Bravo series.

“Skipping out on the reunion is a big no-no for ‘Housewives,” the insider added.

“This was the kiss of death for Mary. She hardly has any alliances left in the cast, who hoped she would have shown up to the reunion to take accountability for her behavior and the allegations about her church.”

Mary has been surrounded in scandal since mid-September of last year when she was accused of running an alleged cult by her former Faith temple members instilling fear in anyone who attempted to leave.

The insider speculated: “Yes, this pretty much secures the chance that Mary will be fired from the show.

“You don’t pull moves like this, we’ve seen what happens when people do and she was already in hot water.”

The highly-anticipated reunion for season two of RHOSLC filmed on Thursday, January 6 with producer and host, Andy Cohen, leading the charge.

While Mary did not attend, Andy, 53, did get into the drama with the rest of the show’s cast – Jen Shah, Meredith MarksHeather GayLisa BarlowWhitney Rose and Jennie Nguyen.

The Sun has reached out to Bravo, who declined to comment, while Mary’s representative has not gotten back at this time.

However, Bravo boss Andy did confirm on his Instagram Story on Friday that the controversial Housewife was not present at the reunion.

Back in September 2021, The Daily Beast reported former church members claimed Mary operated the church like a “cult” telling them they will be “condemned to hell” if they don’t listen to her.

Mary took over the reigns at the church in 1997 after her grandmother Rosemary “Mama” Redmon Cosby passed away.

She married her widowed step-grandfather, Bishop Robert Cosby, shortly after her grandmother’s death, which she previously claimed was the only way to keep the church in the family.

The mother of one then said to producers in a confessional: “Basically, my grandmother passed everything on to me – literally – and she also wanted me to marry her second husband, which was my step-grandfather.”

However, her commanding position at the church has stirred some trouble among former members who claimed she had transformed the religious sanctuary into a cult.

The members also alleged she refered to herself as “God,” encouraged members to work for free or minimum wage at the family’s numerous businesses, berated church-goers from the podium, and forbade anyone to leave for another church or they would be “condemned to hell.”

One former church member who spoke to the publication said Mary “brainwashed” those in the congregation “on the regular.”

The Sun reached out to Mary Crosby’s rep, but they declined to comment.

Mary denied claims she’s running a cult, defending herself to Entertainment Tonight and said: “Clearly, I’m not gonna get on national television, be a Housewife and be in a cult.”

More recently, Mary was accused of “encouraging suicide” as she told angry fans to “jump” after she was slammed for “mocking an accent.”

During the January 2 episode of RHOSLC, Mary came under fire for racially insensitive comments about co-star Jennie’s facial features in a previous episode.

Mary was accused of discussing Jennie’s “slanted eyes” and calling her skin tone “yellow” while she was also slammed for mocking a Vietnamese accent.

Jennie, 44, confronted Mary during the episode as she explained: “You’re an adult, take some responsibility. Right now, there is a lot of Asian hate. Take responsibility for your words.”

Mary eventually apologized and said: “I will never walk down that road. I apologize.”

Mom who faked daughter’s terminal illness to rake in $560,000 finally admits causing her death

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 12:42

AN evil mom accused of faking her daughter’s terminal illness to obtain $560,000 for her final-wishes bucket list has finally admitted to causing her death.

Kelly Turner, 62, has admitted to charges of felony theft, felony charity fraud and child abuse negligence, according to the district attorney’s office of the 18th Judicial District.   

Kelly Turner has admitted to charges in connection with the death of her -seven-year-old daughter Doctors previously questioned Olivia Gant’s ‘medical problems’

Turner had previously pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder as she faced a slew of accusations over the death of her seven-year-old daughter Olivia Gant.

The mother had claimed that her daughter’s quality of life was below par, and suffered from several diseases, including a seizure disorder and deficiencies in the bran.

However, many doctors were reluctant to believe Gant was gravely ill.

According to the Denver Post, one physician was pushed to sign a “do not resuscitate” order as Turner’s daughter, who was fed through a feeding tube,  was admitted into Children’s Hospital Colorado in 2017.  

Gant died just weeks later under hospice care.

Her death certificate revealed she died from chronic intestinal failure, seizure disorder, and autism.

However, Turner was indicted on murder in 2019 after doctors questioned the daughter’s “medical problems” in addition to Gant’s illness.

Gant’s body was later dug up from her grave – leading to a second autopsy which found her death to be undetermined.

Turner also reportedly mentioned Munchausen syndrome by proxy (MSBP) to investigators, however, she denied she had the mental health illness.

Meanwhile, Turner’s efforts to fulfil her daughter’s ‘bucket list’ of dream amounted to donations of thousands of dollars after a GoFundMe page was set up in Gant’s name.

The page stated: “We are hoping for support both financially, spiritually, and emotionally. Not only will this be a taxing time for Kelly (mom), and Olivia but for Olivia’s sisters and the friends and family who are willing to step in and help during this time.”

The list of luxurious items included n $11,000 ‘bat princess’ costume party provided by the Make-A-Wish-Foundation as well as a local bake sale held for Olivia and a ‘Night for the Gant Girls.’

The mother-of-two was later accused of defrauding the Medicaid system of more than $538,000 and ripping off several other charities and fundraising platforms.

Turner is now due to be sentenced on February 16 and could face 16 years in prison.

I’m addicted to being pregnant – I’m hoping to have a 10th baby but I don’t want to keep it

Sab, 08/01/2022 - 12:40

A SURROGATE mum who claims she’s ‘addicted’ to pregnancy has described the joy of helping childless couples have their own children as she plans to have a 10th baby.

Laura McCarthy, 33, has four children of her own and has given birth to five more babies on behalf of couples unable to have their own children.

MEN MediaLaura McCarthy has given birth nine times and admits that she finds pregnancy ‘addictive’[/caption] MEN MediaThe mum has four children of her own and has acted as a surrogate to the other five children[/caption]

She had her first surrogate baby, a girl, 11 years ago and eight months ago gave birth to surrogate twins, a boy and a girl, for another family.

Each of those surrogate pregnancies came as a result of IVF (In vitro fertilisation) where the would-be parents’ egg and sperm were used to create an embryo which was then placed in Laura’s womb.

It means that, genetically, none of the babies are hers, she says.

The single mum from Bradley, Huddersfield, said: “I love being a mum, it’s the best job in the world, and I love that I can help someone fulfill their dream to become a parent.”

She also says she wants to “end the misconceptions around surrogacy.”

Laura recently lost more than five stone in weight with Slimming World so that she can continue having more surrogate babies for those people who are desperate for children of their own.

“Having had nine babies, and definitely wanting more, I couldn’t risk a tenth baby whilst being so overweight because of the associated risk factors.”

Now weighing 11st Laura had always wanted to be a mum growing up and has often felt for

people who longed to have kids but aren’t able to become a parent naturally.

She decided to become a surrogate mum after seeing a TV programme and after having her first two children.

“That unconditional love that I felt, I thought how lucky I was to have that and so thought if I could help others, then why not?

“I wanted others to be able to have that unconditional love for their own children.”

She gets to know each family beforehand and stays in touch afterward.

Once the children are old enough to understand they are given more information about how they were born.

“Once they are old enough they will know who I am and that they grew in my tummy.”

Soon she is hoping to have a surrogate baby for a single man with a donated egg, although says she hasn’t got pregnant yet.

She’s happy to talk about her own experiences in order to place surrogacy in a positive light and put right a few misconceptions.

One misunderstanding, she believes, is that surrogate mums become overly attached to their newborn babies.

“People think I would be attached to the baby. Of course, I want to keep that baby safe, but you don’t have the same feelings (you have) towards your own child when you are pregnant with someone else’s.”

She says some people wrongly believe that surrogate mums “get lots of money”.

“In the UK, surrogacy is altruistic. Expenses are covered, such as travel and maternity clothes.”

UK law states that you cannot pay a surrogate, except for their reasonable expenses.

Some people ask her ‘funny questions’.

“They ask ‘do you know who you are doing it for? Yes, I would not have a baby for a stranger.”

Laura says that what she does is not a service and she is not permitted to advertise, although she is allowed to ‘raise awareness’.

“Nowadays there’s a really supportive surrogacy community and there are groups on Facebook. The words used are ‘intended parents’. It is a community to support each other.”

Laura says handing over the newborn baby to the parents is an incredible feeling.

“Once you see the baby in their arms you can see that unconditional love immediately. It is just so worth it. That feeling can be slightly addictive.”

Laura, a former nursery nurse, had all nine children at Calderdale Royal Hospital including her own, April, 13, Rowan, 11, Ada, six, and Eira, two.

Now that she has given birth to nine children, some people have started asking about ‘double figures’, she admits.

“I do get asked that. It is a sensible question.”

She says: “I would like to carry on helping people to have their family. 

“If my body gets to the stage where it is struggling with pregnancy, or if I get health problems or the birth is not going well, that is where a line will need to be drawn because my children need a mum.

“I never rule anything out, I play everything by ear. I have always coped well with pregnancy and have had straightforward births.”

And she says her parents and own children have been supportive.

“It’s so normal to my family they would be shocked if I wasn’t having more…my mum is my biggest support regarding surrogacy. She supports me in doing what I do.”

Her grandparents, however, were shocked at first.

She adds: “Twelve years ago, when I first started to do it, they had a lot of misconceptions. They were a little bit shocked and thought I shouldn’t do it. They saw an amazing journey with the parents and how they were respectful of me.”
