She said,

“I always wanted children and aimed to have them by the time I was 30. Then, when it happened, I panicked that it was too early. I needn’t have worried though; it was the best thing I ever did. Producing a person! Jerry brought sausage sandwiches and a gram of coke into the labour ward to keep himself awake, but it happened so fast he needn’t have bothered.”
