KERRY Katona has shared a rare snap of her daughter Heidi Croft looking all grown up.
The 16-year-old posed with Kerry’s friend’s daughter for a glam snap.
The mum of Heidi’s pal, Jade, captioned it: “Babies getting so grown up and beautiful.”
Kerry – who is a proud mum of five – showed off her glowing teenager who has been through a tough time lately.
The former Atomic Kitten star has previously opened up about Heidi’s battle with anxiety after the teen told her mum that she “didn’t want to be here any more”.
Kerry, 42 – who shares the teen with ex Mark Croft – made reference to Christine McGuiness’ daughter Penelope, who told her mum and dad that she didn’t want to live while we were at the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The mum-of-five commented on her own child’s struggles.
Kerry wrote: “I don’t think the pandemic had that much of an effect on my children in that sense, but Heidi suffers with anxiety and a lack of self-confidence in general.
“And she has got to a point where she’s spoken like that.
“She once sat on her bed and told me she didn’t want to be here any more.”
She added: “It broke my heart and I cried my eyes out.”
Kerry also had to take Heidi out of school because of being tormented by bullies.
Kerry took drastic action and enrolled her at the same private school her sister DJ goes too as did their sibling Molly and Lilly.
Writing in new! magazine, Kerry said: “Heidi really struggled at the end of the school year, before summer. She was being bullied.
“We also moved house and she had to say goodbye to a lot of friends. She’s 14 and its a tough age. She felt down on life – everything was negative. I felt she’d lost her spark.
“But a week into her new school, she seems so excited. I can see that spark in her face again and I’m so pleased.”
Kerry shares Heidi and her brother Maxwell, 14, with Mark, who she was married to between 2007 and 2011.
The Atomic Kitten singer is also mum to Lilly-Sue, 19, and Molly, 20, who are from her first marriage to Brian McFadden.
Kerry’s youngest child is Dylan-Jorge whose father George Kay died after “eating ball of cocaine pulled from his pants” during a Holiday Inn binge.
