Presenter Kirsty Gallacher has admitted she is “completely ready” to have baby number three.
The mother-of-two recently embarked on a new relationship and said that she is not too old to have another child at 45.
The former Sky Sports presenter told the Women’s Health UK podcast, Going For Goal : “I’d love another child. I feel completely ready for it.
“I feel healthier than ever, fitter than ever, I think my mind’s better than it’s ever been.
“I think sometimes when you have rough patches in your life… as long as you learn, come through it, and get yourself back in a strong place again, I think you feel rather good.”
And she added: “I’d obviously want to do it sooner rather than later, but I toy with it right now.
“I’m in a new relationship right now and I feel like saying, if someone’s got a problem [with Kirsty having another child at 45], why is that?
“Why am I too old? What is the problem if I’m fit, healthy, able, and we want to do that?”
Kirsty split from husband and former rugby player Paul Sampson in 2015 and has previously said the breakdown of her marriage left her feeling like “an anxious wreck”.
However she admits she is “loving my life right now”.
The presenter also said she didn’t know why the menopause is still a taboo subject.
“At the moment, I’m not having any symptoms of perimenopause,” she continued.
“I’m ready for it, I’m aware of it, I do a lot of reading up on it. I know that weight training and fitness is vital.

“I also feel in this modern world now, I really feel that 40 is 30, I think 50 is 40…we live in a modern world, it’s completely different.
“Our thoughts should be modern too, there shouldn’t be such subjects that are ‘oh god are you menopausal?’ well, does it matter?”
Kirsty also touches upon her exit from Sky Sports on the podcast and discusses the male traditionalists that made her stronger during her early football presenting days.
