Krystal Hipwell (née Forscutt) was just 19 when she was experienced national fame thanks to a stint on what was then the juggernaut Big Brother.
One highly-publicised boob job and more than 20 men’s mag covers later, Hipwell carved quite a career for herself as a model in her time post reality-TV.
However, now 31, the pregnant mum-of-one says her time on the show and her subsequent modelling career is all a “distant memory.”
“Becoming a mother has taught me so much, I’ve become a far more patient person and it’s definitely put a lot into perspective about what I want in my life and what I want for my family,” she told the Morning Show on Tuesday morning.
“It almost seems like another person when I look back. I was obviously so young – I was 19 at the time – and I look back and almost feel detached from it, like it didn’t really happen because so much has changed.”
Today, Hipwell runs a lifestyle blog that includes stories of parenting and health and fitness advice. Most recently, she shared her experience having two miscarriages in her attempts to fall pregnant with her second child.
