Real life: ‘why i had A baby with my ex’
While MIC’S Binky is processing her own news, we ask: can a baby with an ex ever work?
It’s been a turbulent 12 months for Made In Chelsea’s on-off couple Alexandra ‘Binky’ Felstead and Josh ‘JP’ Paterson. But with the dramas of 2016 behind them, it seems congratulations are in order – because last week the pair announced they’re expecting their very own bubba. The 26-year-old confirmed she’s expecting her first child this summer and although she and JP, 27, aren’t a couple, they’re going on dates and definitely not seeing anyone else. However, Look’s been told that the pair are secretly finding the attention quite tough. ‘Binky’s putting on a very brave and strong front after the shock pregnancy news,’ an insider tells us. ‘But behind the scenes she’s made it clear that she wants Josh to commit and to bring the child up as a proper couple.’
And while many MIC fans have been quick to criticise JP (who’s been less than pleasant to Binky throughout the show), we’re told he’s ready to change: ‘He wants to do right by her – but he knows he would have to make massive lifestyle changes and really make a proper full-on commitment to her.’
