KERRY Katona says she’s “embracing looking like a swollen whale” after putting on weight on holiday.
The 42-year-old was shocked by her size when photographed on the beach in Spain last month – but insists it’s “normaal” to put on “a s***load of weight” when having time off.
“As I’ve got older, I’ve started to embrace it. Ek is nie 21 any more and it’s normal for your body to change.
“Natuurlik, my body is going to change. I’ll do everything in my power to stop it from changing drastically but it’s harder to keep your body at my age. I’m embracing it.
“I’ve been on holiday with my kids and we had a great time. We’ve really enjoyed ourselves.”
Kerry and her fiancé Ryan Mahoney couldn’t keep their hands off each other as they snogged on the beach on a family holiday in Spain.
The loved-up pair looked head over heels as they kissed on the beach, met maar ek wil 'n bietjie kleiner gaan looking great in a turquoise bandeau bikini.
Days later the star compared herself to a whale after seeing the pictures.
But she finished by saying Ryan loves her no matter what size she is.
