Ex-TOWIE star Lydia Bright has announced she's pregnant with her first baby
Lydia Bright has announced she's pregnant with her first baby... just days after James Argent tweeted that he's had 'bad news'.
Taking to Instagram, Lydia wrote: "Surprise! Yes, I’m having a baby 👶🏼 ... I’m so excited. For the full story pick up a copy of @hellomag which is out on sale tomorrow with the full shoot and interview."
She also added: "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.”
However, Lydia also revealed she and her boyfriend Lee Cronin - who is the father of her baby - have split.
She continued “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."
This comes just days after Arg tweeted that he'd received some 'bad news' alongside a video of Jessie J to Twitter.
