Pregnant Lydia Bright said her baby-daddy Lee Cronin was a “useless” birthing partner.
The mother-to-be, 29, has been preparing for her due date on February 25 but she claimed her ex-partner wouldn’t be any help when it comes to giving birth.
So that’s why the former TOWIE star has also enlisted the help of her mum Debbie as a birthing partner and she wants her daughter to give birth at her home.
At the three-hour long antenatal class, the reality star lamented her ex-boyfriend proved he had a lot left to learn before the birth.
Speaking in podcast episode six Nans and New Beginnings, Lydia shared her frustrations ahead of welcoming her first baby.
She said: “I feel like Lee’s going to be useless. When they were giving the presentation [at the antenatal class], they were like ‘This is what you’ve got to do, this is what the dad’s have to do, massage the back.’
“She was like, ‘Let’s do an exercise. You, stand up. Lee, stand up, if she’s in pain, where would you massage if she’s about to give birth?’ He went like that, at the top of my back. She was like ‘The baby’s not there is it. Where’s the baby?’ He was like ‘It’s there.’
“So she was like ‘So where would you massage?’ And he was like ‘I don’t understand. Is it a trick question?’ Poor Lee. At least he’s learning.
“The woman was saying you need words of encouragement from your birthing partners. I thought. ‘Can you imagine Lee doing that? He would freak. There’s no way he’s doing that. They’re useless.'”
Lydia has moved back in with her nan while her home is being renovated in preparation for her due date.
The telly star has big hopes her renovated home will be perfect for when she welcomes her child Dinky into the world.
Although she had planned to have the baby with her boyfriend, the couple soon went their separate ways after their baby joy.
Lydia and Lee had first set their sights on each other at a club in Ibiza before bringing their love to home turf in the UK.
