Now her son, Jay, is nine months old, and despite Kathleen already having two children from previous relationships, with only five years between Jack and her eldest, she said they all get along “very well.”
She explained: “Now we’re just one big family and it’s really lovely.

“When Jay grows up, we’ll tell him how his father brought him into the world, and we’ll tell him what a good job he did.”
Kathleen admitted that she had reservations about dating Jack, who is 14 years her junior and had just left school when they met.
She told how Angela, Jack’s mother, who is eight years older than her, was “shocked” when she found out about her relationship.
But Kathleen said there didn’t seem to be an age difference between her and Jack, who now works as a dealer.

She explained, “Jack is very mature for his age. Despite the age difference, we get along very well.”
When she told Jack that she was pregnant, Kathleen said that he was excited.
“Once he got over the shock, he loved the fact that he was going to be a father,” she recalled.
“My pregnancy went smoothly and Jack was really overwhelmed when he saw the 20 week scan.
“He was so excited that he couldn’t wait for the baby to arrive.”
Kathleen recounted how she began experiencing her first labor pains last August and the couple left for Sunderland Royal Infirmary.
Kathleen recalled how she went into labor three and a half weeks earlier.
She recalls: “When they saw me there they told me that the baby hadn’t come yet and to go back and wait for more contractions.
“I kept going back and forth to the hospital for the next several days.
“I went five times and each time they sent me home because they said she wasn’t ready to give birth yet.
“But I could feel the baby was on the way. She had already given birth to two boys, so I knew how she felt!”
After the fifth trip to the hospital, Kathleen recounted how she and Jack were getting ready for bed when her water suddenly broke.
She said: “I was screaming in pain as Jack called the hospital and they started telling him what to do to help me deliver over the phone.

“She managed to get my pajama bottoms off and I could already see the baby’s head.
“Jack just went on autopilot as he listened to the hospital staff’s instructions and guided the baby into his arms.
“It was literally over in five minutes, and then the signal hit Jack’s mobile, isolating him from the hospital.”
Kathleen remembered how the baby looked worryingly blue, as if she wasn’t getting enough oxygen.
“Jack quickly sprang into action. He wrapped the baby in towels and started rubbing his body,” she said.
“After a few minutes, he turned a much healthier pink color and started crying, which was a huge relief.
