Wow well congrats to them but iam a lil confused by that report….did she really do all these things while pregnant (I hope asking this doesnt offend the CBB rules and regulations)???

Christine on

Do we know if she really did do and say those things about the cocaine, etc.? I’m a bit shocked and disappointed.

Sarah on

He looks unhappy to be here! lol.

News of the World is basically like the National Enquirer in the US. Kerri did smoke and drink throughout her pregnancy, but I do not think the cocaine stuff is true. She did have a PRIOR cocaine habit.

Kerri on

Wow…that story is really upsetting =/

Boy they should be greatful for him to be healthy right now. Sometimes babies who are born to moms, mums that are on drugs such as Kerry will develope problems later. If they do drug testing on little Max Here in some states in the US, the hospital under certain grounds may keep the baby and place baby in a home until mom cleans up. (by the way It can be done there are many women whom when faced with the possibilites that their child may be taken away for good will and can clean up!!!)I am not sure about the UK though. But I think something should be done. It is dangerous to think that they “Its okay you can wean the baby off coke afterwards” What a crock, and dangerous for someone who could imulate her!

Sheri on

I wish I had never read that article. Very disturbing.

Meg on

News of The World is not a reliable source. It is a rag, half of it is either complete bull or years old and they just keep bringing it up in stories. It is the sunday sister paper of The Sun and if you read both there is retractions/apologies in it constantly about stories they got wrong (or just made up)

Congrats to Kerry, Mark, and the girls on baby Max.

I think she is a bit crazy and like to expose her life. But for some reason I believe when she says she didnt took drugs while pregnant. She even showed some sort of medical charts that would prove she was drug free.. and they seem to keep repreasing this news about her taking drugs while pregnant.

lolly on

yes she did smoke and drink in all through her pregnancy, she shouldnt even have her kids living with her!

Doreen on

I really hope the baby’s ok!! I also hope she didn’t do all those ‘things’ mentioned in the article. If she did, she better count her blessings!

mary on

I hope, for those who have told us americans that the News of the World is a rag mag and might possibly be false and that she really did not take drugs during this pregnancy than in fact she did stay clean for nine months means she can stay clean after being pregnant. For the sake of her children. And if that is the case she was clean and she can prove it the rag mag needs to apologize. I am sure there is going to be some people out there who are going to say she does not need to prove anything but when you are so open about your life and everyone knows your “demons” your ex has or wants custody of the children because of your drug addictions then yes I think you need to prove to people that you have indeed changed. You have to earn the respect that you lost.

Katie on

I am disappointed that CBB posted something from News of the World. I was under the impression that they typically did not post info from the National Inquirer in the US, since it is so unreliable and often false.

Erin on

Kerry did drink and smoke while pregnant (it’s all shown on her reality show) but there is no concrete evidence that she has done cocaine. Mark’s mother and Kerry’s mother have both sold stories to tabloid throughout her pregnancy saying she was doing cocaine and people allegedly involved in the reality show have said they saw cocaine on her nightstand, etc. but none have given evidence to back it up.

Robin on

You would think that because she had previous problems in her prior pregnancies that she would take ALL precautions to not even smoke or drink while pregnant with this darling baby. Glad to hear that the baby is doing well. He is beautiful.

The Daily Mail has photos too, if you want to avoid linking to the NOTW, which I’d certainly completely understand.
