Fatboy Slim

Fatboy Slim

The wife of British Dj Fatboy Slim is convinced the couple's alcohol problems prevented them from conceiving.

I gave up drinking in January and Norm gave up drinking in March and a month later, bang. It was like we were too drunk before!

Former TV presenter Zoe Ball married the musician - real name Norman Cook - in 1999 and later gave birth to their first child, Woody, now eight.

They have both struggled with drinking, but resolved to kick their bad habits for good this year (09), with Cook checking into rehab in March (09).

Ball admits they have been trying for another baby for several years, but she didn't fall pregnant until they both gave up booze.

She says, "We're feeling blessed because we both gave up drinking and we're thinking this is our gift of sobriety. We tried for years and years,and nothing, nothing, nothing. I gave up drinking in January and Norm gave up drinking in March and a month later, bang. It was like we were too drunk before!"

Ball is due to give birth to the couple's second child next year (10).
