‘I was fuming when I found out, I was so angry,’ says Rebecca. ‘The way I was treated was wrong. I think some people think you’re devastated because you want the man, but it’s not that. It’s devastating for a woman because it’s a normal thing for your child to be wanted.’

Rebecca is also a mum to Lillie May, nine, and Karl Jnr, seven, with former partner Karl Dures, who has offered to adopt her.

‘Karl has been a huge support, we’re really good friends,’ says Rebecca. ‘He was there for the birth and he has offered to adopt her and be her dad, too.

‘He has given her his name, which is lovely, so she will be the same as the other kids.’
