Former Towie star Lydia Bright reveals baby daughter's name
Lydia Bright has revealed that her new daughter is called Loretta Rose.
The former The Only Way Is Essex star, who welcomed her first child last month, also said she is working on rebuilding her relationship with her ex-partner, Lee Cronin, the baby’s father.
Bright, 29, told Hello! magazine that Loretta Rose is a “dream child” and that she is “still on a massive high” after giving birth just over two weeks ago.
“I’m not even struggling with the sleep!” she said.
“I’m loving the night feeds. That’s my favourite time. I sit there breastfeeding and I just stare at her.
“I definitely feel like I’ve been blessed with a dream child.”
Bright, who appeared on reality TV show Towie on and off from 2010 until 2017, announced her pregnancy in August while confirming her split from car garage owner Cronin, whom she had dated for two years.
However, she said that now things are good between the pair, and there is a chance they could be a family.
She said: “We’re getting on really well.
“Loretta was planned – this was always something we were going to do. So we decided to build up a relationship again.
“I didn’t want to be angry anymore – what’s happened has happened, I’m not going to hold a grudge.”
She said Cronin was present for the birth and cut the cord, adding that he was “amazing”.
“Now we’re in a good place and I do love him, of course I do,” she said.
“I would love to think that we’re going to be a family, and told him that if he could prove it to me between then and when the baby arrived then I would give things another shot.
“So that’s what we’re trying to do at the moment.
“Equally, I know that if it didn’t work out and we tried, we could be great friends and Loretta would always be our priority.”
She said she does not yet know if she can call Cronin her boyfriend, adding: “We haven’t really had that discussion.
“We’re committed to being a family, but nobody has a crystal ball at the end of the day.”
