Mum-of-four Natasha Hamilton has three little boys, Josh, 12, Harry, 9 and Alfie, 4, from previous relationships.

And, last autumn, she and Five's Ritchie Neville welcomed their first child together - a baby girl, whom they have named Ella Rose.

Speaking shortly after their little girl’s birth, she said: "I can definitely see us having more in the future.

"At the moment I'm just basking in the glory of baby Ella and enjoying every minute of her now… we just want to enjoy giving her and the boys all our attention before we expand.

"We're going to have to save up for a mini bus!"

But, while the flame-haired pop star is happier than ever, she has been receiving a lot of hate from Twitter trolls, who slammed Natasha for being a ‘4x4 mum’.

Which translates to, quite simply, a woman who has had four children by four different fathers.

Speaking to The Mirror, the 32-year-old has hit back at her critics - and sent them a powerful message about happiness and motherhood.

She said: “I do get people saying nasty things because my children have different dads.

“But I feel I would have been a worse mum staying in relationships that were detrimental to me and my children’s happiness.

"Sometimes you have to walk away. I stand by all my decisions and feel I made the right ones.”

The Atomic Kitten star added firmly: “I’ve realised you can do all you can to make your life right and it’s not always down to you, it’s down to the other person, and you can’t control them.

“Is it what I wanted out of my life? No, of course not. But I have my lovely sons and now a daughter and you just have to stop dragging the baggage of the past around with you and move on.”
