I can still remember when I first heard about Katie Piper. Foxtel were showing a documentary about her injury and her slow and painful recovery. I was first interested because it was a story about a beautiful young lady who was horribly disfigured by her at-the-time boyfriend when he threw acid in her face. Watching the documentary, I was inspired by Katie’s determination to get better, even in the face of fear. Since then, I’ve watched Katie embrace her new self and to make something worthwhile from a terrible event.
In a recent interview Katie said:
‘This is the start of a whole new life.The other night I was at a charity ball and everyone I met wanted to talk to me about the baby, not about my burns and recovery. I thought, “Hallelujah”.
There was no doubt that Katie was going to have a chic looking pregnancy. She is dressed in a midnight blue dress with a flattering band around the waist.
She tweeted: ‘This Baby is getting so strong it nearly pushes my hand off when I rest it on the bump! No more spinach for you missy!’ Before adding: ‘Constantly hungry! Have just brought a sandwich so I will have something to eat before dinner!!! Third trimester sending me crazy!’
Update to this story – Katie Piper and her partner James welcomed their daughter Belle on 14 March 2014.
