Ferne McCann confirms she is pregnant with Arthur Collins’ baby
Former The Only Way Is Essex star Ferne McCann has confirmed that she is pregnant.
The reality television personality is expecting her first child with former partner Arthur Collins, who has now been charged in connection with the acid attack that took place in a London nightclub last week.
Confirmation of the pregnancy came this morning, although a representative has explained that Ferne does not wish to discuss the news currently due to the “immense strain” she is under.
Her spokesperson confirmed to OK! Online: “Ferne is grateful for the sympathetic way news of her pregnancy has been covered and people’s support and obviously her first concern is for her child’s health.
“Accordingly she does not wish to discuss the pregnancy further given the early stage it is at and the immense strain that Ferne is currently under.
“Nor does she wish to discuss her ex-boyfriend who she does not recognise from the events of the last week.”
The representative continued: “Ferne is in no way seeking sympathy for her situation and is determined to do all she can to have a happy and heathy child and face the challenges of being a single parent with all her energy.”
Arthur was arrested and charged with 14 counts of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm and one count of throwing corrosive fluid on a person with intent to do grievous bodily harm in connection with the acid attack in London nightspot Mangle on 17 April. The This Morning presenter has sent out her sympathies to the victims of the attack, two of whom have been left blind in one eye.
The spokesperson concluded: “Her thoughts are with the victims of the horrific attack on Easter Monday.”
