The 54-year-old presenter - who has four children with former partners - admitted that the prospect of being pregnant again leaves her horrified and she has "subconsciously made some dramatic detachment" from feelings of broodiness.

Writing in her column for The Sun newspaper, Ulrika said: "I see a pregnant woman and I want to puke. Not at the woman but the prospect of all that comes with pregnancy and newborns.

"I look at freshly baked babies and I think, 'There but for the grace of God, go I'.

"I feel a sort of inner gratitude and pleasure that I no longer want or can do that stuff.

"I have subconsciously made some dramatic detachment from all that I ever wanted to be.

"The contemplation of motherhood – something I yearned for nearly all my life – has utterly disappeared."

And Ulrika admitted it feels like losing part of her identity.

She explained: "I feel I have lost a huge part of my identity. And it feels so strange.

"I don’t feel lost, but I do feel as if I’ve become someone else. To have ached and craved for something all your life and then for that longing to have left you is perplexing. Or is it just natural?

"I think I am going to make an excellent grandma. I look forward to that, I think.

"But the way I feel now, I would rather drink rum and kiss a dog than cradle a baby."
