Cat Deeley has said that while she would love to have more children with her husband Patrick Kielty, the mum-of-one is too much of a "worrier". Speaking to Grazia, the TV presenter, 40, said of motherhood: "It's the best – and hardest – job. (When it comes to another child) the thing is I'm a worrier. What if something happens? I do want more kids. I love kids." Cat, who welcomed her son Milo in January 2016, spoke candidly of pregnancy, saying: "I really didn't enjoy being pregnant and mine was easy. I was very wary of everything!"

The So You Think You Can Dance host and her Northern Irish husband Patrick married in 2012. The couple live in Los Angeles, but spend time in London and Belfast depending on work. Cat has been living Stateside since 2006, but she admits she's still a down-to-earth Brit at heart. "I don't think America has changed me," she said. "I mean, I do the green juice, I do yoga. But I've always done it – even in London."

The West Midlands-born star admitted it would take a lot for her to return to the UK. "The question isn't about leaving LA. It's about my little boy and my husband," she said. "And if I was to going to leave them, it's either got to be something that drives me wild with excitement or something that pays me very well, if I'm being completely honest."

"I do want more kids. I love kids," said Cat

Earlier this month, Cat spoke candidly about falling for her husband Patrick, her former Fame Academy co-host who she had known for years before they started dating. The comedian flew to LA to surprise Cat for her 35th birthday, showing up at the restaurant where she was having lunch.

"There was a strange little moment like in the movies when everyone else just seemed to melt away," Cat told The Mail on Sunday's You magazine. "We spent the afternoon together just drinking, laughing, talking. He told me he wanted to be with me forever. He was very clear this was what he wanted, and that was what got me. I have lived a life where I've met lots of incredible people and been to lots of places, so it takes a lot to blow my socks off.

"But what did it was this man who had the confidence to say what he wanted, to fly halfway around the world to get it. No games, no pretence. He came back to my house that night, stayed for ten days and that was it. If people think attractive is just George Clooney and Cindy Crawford – well, they need a wake-up call. There's nothing more attractive than a man who absolutely knows what he wants and who will put his cards on the table, who can make you laugh. That's the man you want to be with for the rest of your life."
