Kerry Katona and George KayKerry Katona’s fiance George Kay has made such an impact on her and her family’s life that her children now call him Daddy. 

The kids, Max, five, and six year old Heidi haven’t seen their real dad Mark Croft in over a year, so they have started to look upon Kerry’s new man as a father figure. Kerry, 32, even leaves school duties to George, 33.

She said: ‘George is the one who always gets collared into parents’ evenings. Max has drawn a picture of George and him with a football and it says: ‘Me and my daddy George playing football.’ George started crying’.

Kerry also has two older children, Molly, 11, and Lilly-Sue, 10 from her marriage to former Westlife star Brian McFadden.
