Former TOWIE star Amy Childs gave birth to her first baby, a girl called Polly, 6 weeks ago.

And when she and her boyfriend, builder Brad Wright, posed for photos with Polly for OK! magazine exactly 1 month ago, their relationship seemed stronger than ever.


The pair discussed sharing the night feeds, Brad's future proposal, and confirmed that they had given Polly both of their surnames.

However, in shocking news, Amy has now confirmed that she and Brad have split up.

Following claims earlier in the week that explosive rows had led to Amy "kicking" Brad out of her home, she released a statement denying the reports but confirming that they had gone their separate ways. The statement read:

Amy has not thrown Brad out, but they have split up amicably. Brad will of course see Polly whenever he likes, and they will remain friends.

It's not the first time the pair have encountered trouble in their relationship. They began dating back in 2015, but split 9 months later when Amy found explicit messages between Brad and another woman.

Just weeks after getting back together, Amy was blindsided again when she received a phonecall from Brad – from prison.

Brad had allegedly kept his arrest and court date a secret from Amy, and called to tell her he'd been handed an 18 month sentence for handling stolen goods.

It wasn't Brad's first brush with the law – he was sentenced to 16 months in 2013 for 3 counts of theft, and in 2010 spent 19 months in a youth offenders institution for burglary, handling stolen goods and driving offenses.

However, Amy admits to having a "breakdown" while Brad was in prison, and they rekindled their relationship after he was released. And, in October 2016, Amy announced that she was pregnant.

It seemed then that things were truly back on track for the pair – not least because she revealed they'd actually been trying for a baby before Brad went to prison.

Which makes their split all the more surprising.

We're sure having a daughter this cute is helping Amy through this time. 💕
