“I can totally see myself bringing children into the world at some point, but I’m only in my 20s,” Spencer told Mail Online last summer, adding: “I have friends my age who have kids and they’re so sweet, but I think everyone has their own time.”
Spencer has always been considered the “naughty niece of Diana,” after regularly coming to London for parties alongside many celebrities and reality stars. When photos of Kitty were unveiled for those last reasons, she used to boast a glittering lifestyle and continued to post lots of photos on social networks.
Kitty’s previous relationship was with millionaire businessman Gian Paolo Barbieri, 48, who left her in favor of a hot affair with Elizabeth Hurley in 2017.
