Twisted: 50st Donna Simpson says she would never achieve her record-breaking weight goal without the help of her four-year-old daughter Jacqueline
She holds the dubious honour of being the Guinness Book Of Records' fattest woman ever to give birth, requiring a team of 30 medics to deliver her daughter during a high-risk Caesarean birth.
Now, four years on, Donna Simpson has gained a further 12st and, staggeringly, continues to eat as she attempts to reach 72st and land a second record as the world's most obese woman.
And after splitting from long-term partner and feeder Philippe Gouamba, the 50st mother is relying on her four year-old daughter Jacqueline to bring her food to help her reach her goal.
Denial: Donna, who has to eat 15,000 calories a day minimum to reach her 72st target, says her daughter is unaffected: 'She loves salad and plays sports'
The single mother-of-two, who eats over 15,000 calories a day to sustain her weight gain, struggles to get around and enlists the help of Jacqueline to buy and prepare food.
She told Closer magazine: She helps me cook and comes shopping. I use a scooter to get around the store and she runs ahead to get my favourite foods.
'Anyone who says I'm setting a bad example should shut their mouth - they don't know how much I love her.'
Big business: Donna's high calorie diet costs her £500 a week - funded by a website she has set up for 'fat admirers' who pay to look at photos of her eating
And Donna, who struggles to walk and suffers high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes, says that Jacqueline adores her large stomach.
'She's my little angel,' she says.
In contrast to her mother, Donna says Jacqueline eats healthily. 'She loves salad and plays sports,' she insists.
Donna pays for her £500 weekly shopping bill with profits from a website she has set up for 'fat admirers' who pay to look at photographs of her eating.
She has 7,000 fans and makes £60,000 a year.
