Tina Malone branded 'SELFISH' by her own daughter as the former Shameless star prepares to have a surrogate baby aged 54
Tina Malone has announced that she and partner Paul Chase are planning their second child together, after giving birth to daughter Flame in 2013.
However, Tina, 54, and Paul, 35, are not planning to conceive naturally, and will instead be looking to a surrogate to aid their pregnancy.
In a defiant video about her plans to become a mum again, the Toxteth-born actress explained: "Some will say I am selfish and irresponsible for having another child at 54.
"They will moralise and abuse me – even more so for selecting the sex of our baby – and everyone is entitled to their opinion. But I don’t give two sh**s for what they think."
However, while the couple appear excited about the prospect of becoming parents for the second time, Tina's eldest daughter, Danielle, has criticised the idea.
Speaking to Closer Magazine, the 34 year old Hollyoaks Later actress explained how she was "struggling to get [her] head around" the idea.
Danielle also branded her mum's baby plans "insane", disagreeing with the idea of beginning to raise a child at the age of 54.
She said: "When Mum told me about her plans to have another baby using a surrogate I thought it was the most ridiculous thing ever.
"Mum should be grateful for what she has, instead of messing around with things again."
When asked if she thought that Tina was too old to raise another child, Danielle openly stated: "Of course I think mum is too old.
