Actress Tina Malone recently announced that she’s planning to have a baby with toyboy hubby Paul, 35.

Speaking to Closer magazine Danielle, 35, said: “When mum told me about her plans to have another baby using a surrogate I thought it was the most ridiculous thing ever.

“I had to ask her if she’d gone completely insane.

“Mum should be grateful for what she has, instead of messing around with things again.”

She went on to explain: “Of course I think mum is too old.

“She might be in good health, but I don’t think she’s financially stable.

“I’ll always love her but a part of me thinks she’s being incredibly selfish.”

Danielle went on to admit her fears she will struggle to have a connection with the baby.

She said: “This time someone else will carry that child and it will have less of a connection to us. I’m worried I’ll struggle to relate to the child on any sibling level because of this.”

Shameless star Tina recently appeared on Loose Women to talk about her controversial decision.

But she shocked the Loose ladies after admitting her and Paul will select the sex of their baby to ensure they get the son they would love to have.

She told the panellists: “I’ve always wanted a boy.

“[My daughter] Flame said she wanted a brother.”

But Paul wasn’t too keen on the idea and told his wife he had changed his mind live on air.

He said: “I kind of feel that we’re pushing it picking the gender.

“Over the last 24 hours I’ve decided we’re going to leave it to the lap of the gods.”

At the end of the show Tina finally decided to let nature take its course as she said: “I’m going to leave it in the lap of the gods.”

Speaking to Sunday People earlier this month Tina revealed: “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 [bleeps] for what they think.

“I am doing this for Flame and for my husband, not just myself. I am healthy, of sound mind, solvent – and a brilliant mother.”
