Lydia Bright Pregnant With First Child As She Confirms Split From Lee Cronin
Exciting news for TOWIE fans, as a new baby is on the way! The Only Way Is Essex star, Lydia Bright, has revealed she is due to become a mother in February - but also that she has sadly split from the father, Lee Cronin.
Speaking to Hello! Magazine, the 28-year-old, who used to date James Argent, said that she had been struggling to keep tight-lipped about her baby news.
She added that she felt it was the "right time" in her life, "financially and career-wise," and now she was done with travelling and partying.
Despite feeling ready for parenthood, the reality star admitted that her breakup with the baby's father, Lee, was certainly a blow.
"It's not the ideal situation. I waited quite a long time to try for a baby, waited until I thought it was perfect," she told the magazine.
"I've always wanted the fairytale. And it's obviously not worked out exactly how I wanted.
The star teased that everybody is expecting her to have a little girl, but she is "really not bothered" about the gender.
Lydia added: "I know this baby will be the best thing that has ever happened to me."
Revealing the exciting news on Instagram on Monday, Lydia shared a beaming picture of herself without Lee, and wrote: "Surprise! Yes, I'm having a baby...I'm so excited".
Lydia had been with Lee for two years before their breakup.
She is sure to be a natural parent, seeing as her mum, Debbie, has fostered more than 200 children.
Lydia has previously revealed that she too is keen to foster one day, once she's had kids of her own.
Congrats to Lydia, we're sure she'll be an amazing mum!
