Amy Childs is expecting a baby with Chloe Sims’ ex boyfriend, Ritchie.
TOWIE star Chloe revealed the news in her Star magazine column, despite Amy wanting to keep his identity secret.
Chloe spilled, “I had a shock when I saw pictures of her with him when I was 18!”
“His name’s Ritchie and his used to live next door to my cousins Frankie and Joey. But I haven’t seen him in years.”
“Some fans have said she’s having another baby too soon, but as long as the baby is cared for, you can’t judge people’s decisions.”
The reality star is already mum to her daughter Polly, who she welcomed last May with her ex-boyfriend Bradley Wright, who she split from shortly after giving birth.
Amy announced that she was pregnant for a second time earlier this month, but insisted on keeping the name of her partner a secret because he has “no interest in the public eye”.
Amy told OK! Magazine, “Me and my partner are over the moon about having a baby, but he’s not in the least bit interested in being in the public eye, which is so nice and refreshing.”
“We’re extremely happy and can’t wait to welcome a brother or sister for Polly.”
According to The Sun Online, Richie is a businessman, who Amy has been dating for eight months.
A source said, “Amy’s partner is a businessman and he’s got no interest in showbiz or that lifestyle. His focus is Amy and the baby and she completely respects his wishes.
“Right now Amy is the happiest she has ever been in her whole life. It’s a really exciting time for them. He is the best boyfriend to Amy and is absolutely brilliant with her little girl Polly,” they added.
