The director of the Miss England competition says letting a mother enter would be unfair on the child and the family.
In a statement, Angie Beasley told ITV News that any winner of the competition would find it difficult to split attention between the role of being Miss England and being a mother.
A mother who has been kicked out of the Miss England beauty pageant because she has a daughter says the rule outlawing her is outdated.
She says organisers had originally accepted her application but changed their mind just weeks later as they say competitors who have children can't enter because it is against their policy.
