The ‘Only Way Is Essex’ star Lydia Bright has announced she is expecting a baby girl.
The ‘Only Way Is Essex’ star has revealed she is set to welcome a little girl into the world.
She told HELLO! magazine:
“Oh my gosh it’s so exciting, I’ve just found out I’m having a little girl! I wasn’t bothered either way, girl or boy, but I do think that now I know it’s a girl it’s that little bit more special. She’ll be my best friend. Me and Mum are really close and I love our relationship – I’m hoping that me and my daughter have something just as special, just as strong.”
The 29-year-old reality television personality announced her pregnancy in August as she believes now is the “right time” for her to enter motherhood
“It’s been so hard keeping this a secret. I’ve done so much travelling, I’ve done all my partying holidays, I’m where I want to be in terms of my life, financially and career-wise. It just feels like the right time for it all to happen for me.”
But sadly, alongside announcing her pregnancy, Lydia has also revealed she and her boyfriend Lee Cronin – who is the father of her unborn baby – have split.
“It’s not the ideal situation [to have split from Lee]. I waited quite a long time to try for a baby, waited until I thought it was perfect.
“I’ve always wanted the fairytale. And it’s obviously not worked out exactly how I wanted. I’m not closing the door on it completely, but I feel like I just keep getting knocked back. I can’t beg somebody to be with me, and I can’t beg somebody to love me.”
Lydia is already feeling the pregnancy cravings, and admits her healthy diet has gone out the window since she fell pregnant.
“I am such a healthy eater – but all I wanted was pasta, bread, things like that. Stodge. Constantly! And I now can’t eat chicken, eggs or milk – I can’t drink water because it makes me feel sick. I can only drink fizzy drinks. It’s so weird.”
