Ulrika Jonsson

Ulrika Jonsson says she is persecuted because she is a woman.

The 40-year-old star - who is currently pregnant with her fourth child by a fourth different father - believes she is unfairly singled out for criticism as a result of her gender.

She said: "What I find most fascinating about the criticism I get is that it's been levelled solely at me. Everything falls on the woman's shoulders. How do people know what I've suffered, or what I've put up with, or what I've been subjected to, or what I've had to endure.

"Is it my fault that one partner abandoned me? Is it my fault that I wanted to have children and nurture them and give them a loving home? Should I stop having children and become a bitter, twisted old lady? I am not the only woman to have children by different partners, albeit four is maybe a lot."

Ulrika has a son, Cameron, from her marriage to cameraman John Turnbull, and daughter Bo by businessman Markus Kempen.

She also has another daughter, Martha, from her marriage to Lance Gerrard-Right, who she met when presenting UK reality TV show 'Mr Right'. Lance was an eligible bachelor who was allowed to choose from a group of beautiful female contestants.

She is currently married to US advertising executive Brian Monet.
