ATOMIC KITTEN singer Natasha Hamilton is finding it difficult leaving her baby son JOSH at home when she goes on tour.

But Natasha, who split with Josh's father FRAN COSGROVE in January (03), can rest easy in the knowledge that her son is safe at home with her mother.

She says, "I am going through a change at the moment, breaking up with Fran and becoming a single mother. I'm fine, really.

"But, as any mother will tell you, leaving your baby is very hard, and sometimes with me it can be for up to a week.

"But I'm out earning a living to give him a better life, and most of the time he's with my mum, so I know he's in safe hands."
