SINGLE Jen Aitkin, 30, has no intention of getting pregnant any time soon and it’s not because she can’t find a man.
Instead she is enjoying a party lifestyle – but the main reason is because she doesn’t want to pile on the pounds.
“The idea of getting stretch marks and weight gain puts me off having kids,” says Jen from Grimsby, North Lincs.
