Katy Regan worked at 19 magazine for two years before joining Marie Claire in 2002. In 2004, at the height of her career as the office roving reporter singleton, she fell accidentally pregnant by her best mate (who just remained a friend). Seeing the creative possibilities in this unconventional situation, her editor commissioned her to write a column which proved so successful it ran for two years and inspired readers to write in to Katy with their life story.
