Amy Childs has tried her very best to keep her recent romance with her new man out of the spotlight.
Last week the 27 year old confirmed that she was expecting her second her baby and the new fella is the child’s father.
Nevertheless, the former The Only Way Is Essex star declined to even name her beau and announced that he doesn’t want to be famous or have any media attention.
Those plans have now fully gone out the window thanks to Amy’s good friend Chloe Sims, who has revealed the identity of the mystery man in her weekly magazine column.
“Congratulations to Amy Childs on her pregnancy news. I had a shock when I saw pictures of her with the father – I went on a date with him when I was 18!” she exclaimed in Star magazine.
Chloe, 35, continued: “His name’s Ritchie and he used to live next door to my cousins Frankie and Joey [Essex]. But I haven’t seen him in years.”

It wouldn’t be surprising if Amy took Chloe’s words as a personal betrayal, but the reality star did go on to defend Amy after being criticised for rushing to have another baby.
“Some fans have said she’s having another baby too soon but as long as the baby’s cared for, you can’t judge people’s decisions,” said Chloe.
It’s thought that Amy started dating Essex businessman Ritchie around eight months ago, not long after she split with first child Polly’s dad Bradley in June 2017.
