The Shameless actress, who is already mother to two daughters, blasted critics who might label her “selfish” for her choice – but confirmed she WILL want to choose the sex of her next child in a recent interview.
Tina gave birth to daughter Flame, now three, whom she shares with her husband Paul Chase, at 50 years old, so he was naturally concerned for the health implications.
On Tuesday, Tina returned to Loose Women to claim she didn’t care what people said about her decision to have another child.
Tina plans to go to Cyprus where she and Paul have some embryos stored, with a Tina wanting a surrogate mother to carry the child.

She told the panelists: “We originally went over there to destroy the embryos to make [space for other women].
But the star couldn’t bring herself to destroy the embryos, made up of Paul’s sperm and eggs from female donors, saying: “I didn’t want to, my heart was breaking. I kept putting off.”
Jane confessed that at a similar age to Tina, she couldn’t imagine wanting another baby but Tina said she would have three more children if she could.
She explained: “I don’t want him left with one child. If he has two it would be wonderful.”
