Tina Malone: So what if I’m 48? I want another baby

by Paula Kerr, Daily Mirror 19/08/2011

She’s been through her share of ups and downs over the years, but Tina Malone happily admits she’s now having the time of her life.

The Shameless actress married a man 20 years her junior last year and has lost a colossal 9st 13lbs with the aid of a gastric band.

Those things alone would class as a life makeover but 48-year-old Tina has her heart set on one more thing – a baby.

Already a mum to Danielle, 29, Tina wants to get right back into the world of nappies and night feeds with new husband Paul Chase.

In fact, the couple are so ­determined to have a child of their own they will consider IVF or even surrogacy if they can’t conceive naturally.

“I would love another child and Paul would like us to have a child together. I was a very young mum with Danielle and I’d be an older mum this time around,” Tina says.

“There are pros and cons to both but I have enough ­energy for it. I have always wanted another child but not ­until I was in a more settled ­relationship.

“We have ­chosen names. If we have a boy we’ll call him Sebastian and if it’s a girl she’ll be called ­Florence.

“We’ve been trying for a while and ­it’s just not happening. Maybe it’s ­because I’m getting older but we’ve had tests and we’re both fine to produce a child.

“If it doesn’t happen naturally for us by next year, we’ll do IVF. We’ve already registered with a clinic and we’ve talked about surrogacy if IVF fails.”

She’s well aware the clock is ticking though and adds: “Having another son or ­daughter would be amazing, but I’ve told Paul I won’t turn into one of those women who’s still trying to conceive at 60. A baby would be ­wonderful ­but I’ve never been happier than I am now.”

It’s hardly surprising either. The determined 5ft 1 inch ­actress, who grew up in ­Liverpool, returns to ­Channel 4 next Tuesday as mouthy Mimi Maguire but with a very different look.

After shrinking to just 9st 4lbs and from a size 26 to a 12, Tina looks like a ­different person and clearly feels like one.

But she’s convinced she would never have managed it without ­having surgery.

She says: “My gastric band moderates my intake of food, because I can’t moderate it myself. I won’t just have a crisp – I’ll have the bag or nothing. I can’t moderate my eating.

“I was a slim teenager and started putting weight on aged 25 and became a big, fat greedy b*****d.

“I got myself into some bad ­relationships and was ­desperately unhappy with myself. I was confident with my talent but had no self-esteem.

“I could talk to my ­parents about absolutely ­anything and when my dad died eight years ago, my ­eating spiralled out of control. I looked like an egg on legs.”

She decided she’d had enough when she became a size 26 and ­in 2009 had a ­balloon fitted into her stomach.

She lost over four stone but ­regained two when it was removed.

Finally she opted for ­gastric band surgery last year. She adds: “I was ­terrified I wouldn’t wake up ­because I was huge and a smoker. The surgeon told me to stop smoking and go on a milk and yoghurt diet for 10 days prior to the operation to shrink my liver. Two hours after the operation, I was up and about.”

Tina, who suffers from obsessive ­compulsive disorder, is also ­diabetic and was diagnosed as bipolar aged 28 ­but has now seen a ­massive ­improvement in ­­her health.

She says: “Having the gastric band fitted was the best thing I could have done. Now I’m very careful about what I eat – I’ve never felt better.

“I was once on 38 pills each day for my conditions but now all I take is garlic and cod liver oil.”

And she’s not finished yet. “My dream weight is 7st 7lbs and I hope to achieve that by the end of the year,” she says.

When she gets there she plans to ­have cosmetic surgery on her loose skin.

“I’m having my neck done and under my arms. I’m having my boobs lifted because they are like golf balls in socks and I’m having my belly done.”

Regardless of her amazing weight loss and plans for surgery, Tina says she knows husband Paul, a fitness instructor and former Army ­officer, adores her whatever she looks like. The couple met when she joined a fitness boot camp he was ­running two years ago, but it wasn’t exactly love at first sight.

She recalls: “He would knock on my door at 6am and say ‘up, shower, now’. Then we’d go on an eight-mile hike uphill. He was doing my head in and I couldn’t bear him.

“However, at the end of the week, I’d lost 10 pounds because I’d been training for eight hours a day. He gave me my certificate and I started to think he was quite cute. We went for a drink the following week.”

Two weeks later Paul moved in ­and they have been apart just two ­nights since. Like any woman she had her share of insecurities at first and confesses: “It was six months ­before I would get naked in front of him. I’d wear a long T-shirt to hide my bum and legs, but now I don’t ­give ­a damn.

“I feel secure ­because he really, really loves me. We have an ­amazing, incredible sex life. The older woman-younger man thing ­works brilliantly ­for us!

“Paul is one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met. He’s been to Iraq and Northern Ireland and has seen things I never want to see.

“He suffered terrible depression when he left the Army but he’s dealt with that now.

“I can be self-obsessed, opinionated, and neurotic – but I’m nothing compared to what he’s ­dealt with.”

Tina’s actress daughter Danielle, who appears in Hollyoaks spin-off Hollyoaks Later, didn’t warm to Paul at first. “I rang her in Melbourne, where she was on holiday, to tell her I had been ­proposed to and she took a bit of persuading ­that I was doing the right thing.

“We talked more when she got home and she ­eventually came round. That’s really important to me because we’re so close.

“When she was aged five we shared a single bed in a bedsit, while I worked as a waitress ­to support us and ­studied drama.

“We’ve been through a lot ­together, so her approval means the world to me.”

And after walking down the aisle in real life, Tina’s Shameless character, Mimi, is about to follow in ­her footsteps.

“I’m not allowed to say who I’m ­marrying but it’ll be a big, fat ­Shameless wedding,” she laughs. “It’s the kind of ­wedding you’d expect Mimi to have. Her dress is totally over the top and so is the big pink ­Cinderella carriage she ­arrives in. I had a ball ­filming it all.

“This is the part I’ve always wanted. Mimi packs a punch. She’s a matriarch, with a criminal record, a brood of difficult sons and a baby daughter. Shameless ­pushes the boundaries and I love that.”

But there is one other show she’d love to do – Dancing on Ice.

She adds: “I’m obsessed with the skating, the clothes, everything ­– and I can skate.”

Whatever happens in the future Tina knows it’s the real thing with Paul.

“He met me when I was the size of an elephant, in a fleece and no make-up.

“I have test-driven a few others and know he ­completely wants me, ­whatever I look like, and he tells me he loves me every single day. We’re ­blissfully happy.”

She's off her nut and actually looks a lot like a tranny I used to know. It's her mouth. I don't know if I'll be watching DOI next series but this one being on it would make my mind up for me.
