Cat Deeley has revealed she is desperate to have another baby with husband Patrick Kielty. But the 40-year-old mother has said she feels she needs to "get on with it" because she is already considered a "geriatric mum". Cat, who is already a mum to 18-month-old son Milo, told the Mirror: "I would love some more. But I have got to get on with it if I do. When you go for your check-ups they call you a 'geriatric mum'. That is the terminology they use, I swear. They say, 'Ma'am, you are triple high risk'."

So You Think you Can Dance host Cat also opened up about her "delicious" baby boy, but admitted that being a mum made her anxious. "I am awake all night listening out for him," she confided. "I am checking he is breathing. I am depressed I will never sleep again."

Cat said of their romance: "It was quite knock-your-socks off for both of us"

Cat and Patrick, 46, tied the knot in September 2012 in a secret wedding ceremony in Rome, after just 11 months of dating. Speaking about their whirlwind romance, the star revealed: "It was quite knock-your-socks off for both of us. There were no more games and it all happened very quickly because we were older and comfortable in our own skin. A lot of our friends knew it would happen before we did, but I honestly had no idea. I wouldn't have wasted so much time! And thank God he happened to be around and that I hadn't missed him in the process!"
