Aileen Cullinane attacked her widowed mother and her husband last November
Aileen Cullinane, 27, twice yanked the hair of widowed mother Lynn Gradwell, 54, and scuffled with Mrs Gradwell's second husband Mark, 51 as he attempted to call the police.
The incident occurred last November after jobless Cullinane, from Eccles, near Salford, Greater Manchester – who claims £340 a month in state handouts – had knocked back eight cans of lager on the anniversary of her father's death.
At the time she was three months pregnant with her second child and magistrates in Manchester were told she had split up with her boyfriend following a "discussion" over the identity of the unborn child's father.

On Thursday Cullinane arrived late for her court hearing sporting pink hair and purple lipstick and admitted two charges of assault by beating.
This was very distressing for her
Prosecutor Miss Ann Deakin told JPs: "Emotions were running high and on the day in question the defendant had gone to the Gradwells' home with her 10 year old daughter.
"Whilst there the defendant left her daughter with her mum and stepfather while she went to visit a friend. While she was out she accepts that she had some alcohol, some eight cans of lager.
"As a result when she returned to the address an argument happened with her stepfather about the defendants upbringing. As a result of that there was an altercation between the defendant and her mother and stepfather.
Cullinane has previous convictions for assault, criminal damage and possession of a weapon in public
"The defendant accepts that in relation to Lynne Gradwell she pulled her mother's hair twice.
"Mark was trying to call the police when she tried to stop him by grabbing the phone out of his hand and struck him – because she didn't want him to call the police at the time."

Whilst at court, Cullinane's ex-partner threatened her before fleeing the area
"She admits that while she was trying to get the phone from her stepfather she did come into physical contact with him, in a reckless act. It is aggravated by the drink and the fact that a child was in the address."
Mr Munton added: "Her personal circumstances is that she has recently been forced to move from the Salford area.
"She fell pregnant and there were discussions made with her partner of who the father was, which led to the break down of that relationship and she has had to move out of her address and declare herself homeless to get another address.
"Her ex-partner attended court this morning and threatened to stab her and kick her unborn child out of her. This was very distressing for her."
