Kerry Katona mourns long lost real father’s deathApril 19th, 2009 - 4:19 pm ICT by ANI
London, April 19 (ANI): Kerry Katona is shattered after finding out that her long lost real father has died.
The former Atomic Kitten singer traced Ron Armstrong last year through a private detective.
She had been planning to contact her 62-year-old father, whom she saw only once as a baby.
However, Katona recently discovered that he died of cancer only a few months after she found out who he was.
“She is very shocked and raw over the news-she longed to have a father figure in her life,” News of the World quoted a close pal as saying.
A friend of Katona said that the star however was consoled by the discovery of her real father’s other children-a sister and four brothers, who never knew she was their half-sister until now.
And they are willing to welcome Katona if DNA tests prove Armstrong was her father.
“It makes no difference that Kerry is a celebrity to us,” said her half-sister Lynsey.
“If she is our sister then she is our sister-and she will be welcome here into the family if it is true she is Dad’s daughter.
“I’d like to meet her soon-but at the moment we are all in shock over this. It is a bit upsetting that Dad kept it to himself for 28 years,” she added. (ANI)
