The 38-year-old star – who has Molly, 17, and Lilly-Sue, 16, with first husband Brian McFadden, Heidi, 12, and Max, 10, with second spouse Mark Croft, and Dylan-Jorge, four, with third husband George Kay – has learned a lot from her previous relationships and won’t make the same mistakes again.
She said: “Every relationship I’ve had, th man has always been quite jealous of my children, of me giving them affection. That’s not going to happen again.”
And if she does find a new man, Kerry wants them t feel “lucky” to be joining her family.
She told Closer magazine: “I’ve learned to love myself now and I’m feeling more confident than I have in a long time.
“If I’m going to bring somebody into my life now, they’re the lucky ones because me and my family are amazing and they’d be lucky to be a part of it.”
The former Atomic Kitten singer believes her string of doomed marriages are a result of her chasing the “fantasy” of a happy ending.
She said: “For me, I always wanted to me a mum and a wife.
“When I met Brian, all my dreams had come true and when it fell apart, I felt like a failure.
“I tried to recreate what I had with Brian with Mark and George.
“Now I realise what I was doing. I’d always wanted a family unit and I was always trying to fulfil that fantasy.
“That’s why I punish myself now for my mistakes.”
Kerry has accused George of being abusive – which he has denied – and she admitted she “profusely apologised” to her kids after they had split.
She said: “After it was over with George, I was profusely apologising to my girls because when you’re in a domestically violent relationship, you’re almost groomed until you get out of it. I did eventually.”
