The five-year-old boy who looks pregnant: Youngster is having chemotherapy to cure him of a rare condition that makes people think ‘he is about to pop’

A five-year-old is having chemotherapy to cure him of a rare condition that makes him look pregnant.

Mckenzie Watson suffers from a disorder known as nephrotic syndrome, which causes his kidneys to leak, filling his abdomen with fluid.

The schoolboy, from Doncaster, is left in agony as his face and belly swell up with liquid.

Mckenzie’s mother Antonia Watson, 26, says her son’s condition is so severe his abdomen looks like hers did just before she gave birth to him.

She said: ‘The first time it happened, we just thought he had put on weight over Christmas. He was massive, he looked as though he was nine months’ pregnant and about to pop.’
