She gave birth to her first child, Loretta, in February.
And Lydia Bright looked at the bright side of life as a single parent, as she discussed her incredibly ‘special bond’ with her inseparable ten-month-old daughter on Monday.
The former TOWIE star, 29, called an end to her on-off romance with Loretta’s father, Lee Cronin, earlier this year but confirmed he still sees their child every weekend.

In an interview with Hello! magazine, she said of her relationship with the tiny tot: ‘Me and Loretta have the most incredible relationship and special bond – especially because she’s a 2020 baby as well. We are inseparable.
‘She still sleeps in my bedroom, and she’s my whole world. It has just been me and her all along, she’s my whole happiness.
‘Any single parent will relate to this; that bond that you have, because it’s just been you two, is so special. We’ve been through it all together. I’ve experienced every one of her first milestones.’

Lee broke things off three months into Lydia’s pregnancy, but the pair decided to rekindle their romance after he showed his supportive side during pre-natal appointments and the birth.
The couple met in Ibiza in June 2017 but separated and reunited three times, ultimately deciding to split for good in April.
However, Lydia has the support of her close-knit family including her parents Debbie and Dave and sisters Georgia, 31, and Romana, 17.
Loretta is reportedly very advanced for her age, with the mother-of-one labelling her ‘Miss Independent’.
Lydia revealed that her daughter’s first word was ‘mama,’ she already has two teeth and has even started wearing 18-month-old clothing.

During the festive period, she said that Loretta has become fascinated with Christmas lights and dances along to tunes such as, When Santa Got Stuck Up the Chimney.
Lydia has also been documenting the progress of her adorable baby through videos and photos uploaded to social media.
Prior to her relationship with Lee, the former reality star dated James ‘Arg’ Argent and their relationship was documented on the hit ITVBe show, The Only Way Is Essex.
The pair dated on and off between 2008 and 2015, but went their separate ways in 2016 when Lydia found him at her Essex home, completely ‘out of it’.
James, 33, went on to date fellow TOWIE star, Gemma Collins, but the duo called time on their romance in July after he branded her a ‘hippo’ among other derogatory slurs in a series of texts that the GC, 39, released.
