Britain’s “worst mother” Karen Matthews is expected to become a mother again with the convicted pedophile fiancee Paul Saunders, using a surrogate mother.
The 45-year-old woman, nicknamed Britain’s “worst mother” after faking the kidnapping of her own daughter in 2008, turned to a woman two months ago.
She has now had two positive pregnancy tests, reports the Daily Star.
The baby was said to have been conceived after convicted pedophile fiancee Saunders slept with surrogate mother with Matthews’ blessing.
It is scheduled for the fall, sources said.

They added, “Karen is on the moon. She is desperate to have a little baby to raise again. When they got the call, she couldn’t believe it.
“But the surrogate did another test just to be on the safe side.
“She wants so badly to become a mother again.
“In his eyes, it is the only way to have a baby without people taking a picture of it and it will be worth saving his body. “
The couple are believed to be paying the mystery woman £ 1,000 for the costs incurred.
Saunders was imprisoned for five years in 2010 for sexually abusing a 15-year-old girl.
He and Matthews broke up after she found out about her past, but they reconciled. Last year, she tried to beat the rights to her autobiography to fund cosmetic surgery.
Shannon, 9, was kidnapped by Matthews and Michael Donovan, who planned to make money from the ad.
They had planned for Donovan to release Shannon at the Dewsbury market, “find her”, then take her to the police station and claim a reward of £ 50,000.

West Yorkshire police found Shannon alive at 12:30 p.m. on March 14, 2008, 24 days after his disappearance. She was concealed in the base of a sofa bed in an apartment in Lidgate Gardens, and Donovan was arrested at the scene.
In November 2008, the Leeds Crown Court learned that Shannon had been drugged to subdue her while she was detained.
Donovan said Matthews asked him to take care of his daughter for several days and that they would make money from the newspaper awards.
He told the court that she had threatened him with violence.
On November 27, Matthews denied having anything to do with the disappearance of his daughter and was told to “take the blame” for what had happened.
In cross-examination, Julian Goose QC said that she told the police five versions of the story and accused her of “lying after lying, after lying”.
On December 4, 2008, Matthews and Donovan were found guilty of kidnapping, false imprisonment and the misuse of justice.
