‘Bil­lie and I have play dates with the kids’

Celebrity Mum Of The Year Amy Childs lifts the lid on gos­sip fests with TOWIE mates, deal­ing with on­line trolls and life as a sin­gle mum…

It’s not been the eas­i­est of years for Amy Childs. Six weeks af­ter giv­ing birth to her daugh­ter, Polly, in April, Amy ended her re­la­tion­ship with builder boyfriend Bradley Wright, 25.

‘Do­ing it on my own is hard, but I think it makes you stronger,’ she tells us as we sit down for a lunchtime chat.

‘Be­ing a mum is the best thing I’ve ever done in my life. Me and Polly have got the most amaz­ing bond ever.’

The for­mer TOWIE star is ab­so­lutely be­sot­ted with Polly – telling us at least three times through­out our chat how much she loves her.

‘We went to Lake­side [shop­ping cen­tre in Es­sex] the other day, and Polly was just talk­ing away, so I think she’ll be a proper chat­ter­box. She’s such a lovely lit­tle thing – I love her,’ she says, proudly.

It’s clear that moth­er­hood re­ally suits Amy and, to add to her de­light, she’s just been crowned this year’s 3D-lipo Celebrity Mum Of The Year.

‘I’m so over­whelmed. I just can’t get over it!’ she smiles.

Polly sounds pretty pleased for her mum, too. ‘We had all the pic­tures taken with the award, and she laughed the whole time!’ gushes the 27-year-old re­al­ity TV star. ‘She’s so cheeky!’


Tak­ing af­ter her mum, it looks like Polly’s not short of fa­mous friends.

‘A cou­ple of weeks ago, me and Polly went on a play date with Bil­lie [Faiers] and Arthur [Bil­lie’s son, eight months],’ re­veals Amy.

‘We have a few mu­tual friends, so we all got to­gether and went for a bit of lunch.

‘When you’re with other mums, it’s re­ally in­ter­est­ing to know what their ba­bies are get­ting up to.’

As Amy tells us that ‘all the TOWIE boys and girls will go to school to­gether in Brent­wood’, we joke that the kids should do a nextgen­er­a­tion show in 18 years’ time – and Amy was all for it.

‘Yeah, and the mums, too!’ she laughs. ‘I think it could be a very good idea. But Polly’s not al­lowed to talk about vajazzles!’


De­spite her lat­est ac­co­lade, Amy ad­mits that she gets trolled on­line for her par­ent­ing choices.

‘You’re never go­ing to win,’ she sighs. ‘I’d get abuse ei­ther way. Peo­ple haven’t got any­thing bet­ter to do.’

But, tak­ing it all in her stride, the for­mer The Jump con­tes­tant grins, ‘We call them the Mum Po­lice! Ev­ery baby’s dif­fer­ent, and mums should rally to­gether.

‘At the end of the day, I know I’m a good mum. I know that I’m do­ing the best for Polly.’

While she praises the ‘amaz­ing sup­port’ she gets from her par­ents and her cousin, fel­low ex-TOWIE star Harry Der­bidge, 23, glam­orous Amy re­veals that be­ing a hands-on par­ent gets in the way of her beauty rou­tine.

‘You should see me at two o’clock in the af­ter­noon, when I’ve not taken my dress­ing gown off for two days,’ she gig­gled.

‘I live in my gym stuff, but I don’t re­ally go any more!’

Polly’s the star of the show, says proud Amy
