In an exclusive interview with HELLO magazine, TOWIE star Lydia Bright has announced her pregnancy – and also her split from baby daddy, Lee Cronin.
"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 HELLO. “I've always wanted the fairy tale. And it's obviously not worked out exactly how I wanted.”
Lydia met her now ex-boyfriend at a polo match in 2017 and while the pair had a slightly turbulent relationship, she recently posted a loved-up birthday message to her beau on Instagram in July saying, "Love isn't always perfect between us, but who wants perfect anyway.”
While the reality star may have been surprised at the recent turn of events, her mum Debbie predicted this would happen months ago.
When the family appeared on Yahoo’s podcast White Wine Question Time back in March, Debbie revealed her psychic abilities.
“I do predict the future with a lot of people,” the foster mum told host Kate Thornton. And one of those people she predicted the future for was her very own daughter Lydia.
Recalling her prediction on the podcast, Debbie said she told Lydia that she had something sad to tell her. “You are going to have two children by two different men, but you’re not going to end up with anyone,” she said.
While Lydia wasn’t happy with her mum’s forecast for her future, she did say it wasn’t the end of the world.
“But I would like to think I’d have four or five children and that I’d like to think that I’d have somebody that I would be doing it with,” she exclaimed.
