Pregnant Claire Sweeney Hints At Reunion With Her Former Fiancé

Claire Sweeney may have separated from the father of her baby, but she says the pair are ‘a lot closer’ as her birth approaches

Couple issues are tough at the best of times, let alone when you’re expecting a baby. Which is why Claire Sweeney is prioritising her pregnancy over fully rekindling her relationship right now.
The actress, 43, is eight months pregnant with her first baby and split from her fiancé Daniel Riley just weeks before discovering they were expecting a child.
But although their current focus is on bringing their little one into the world, it seems a reunion isn’t completely off the cards.
‘We’ve been spending lots of time together and the priority really is to get the baby born and healthy and we’ll see what happens after that,’ she tells this week’s OK!.
‘We’ve grown a lot closer. He’s been so supportive. He’s been brilliant, he really has. So, yes, we’ve grown a lot closer. He’s been helping me out with things, he’s been wonderful.’

Claire also reveals Daniel will be her birthing partner and has been to antenatal classes with her.
‘I think he’ll be a brilliant dad, he’ll be great,’ she says. ‘I think he’ll be really hands-on. Daniel’s wanted to be involved in everything. He’s been an absolute rock.’
For the full interview, pick up this week’s OK!, out now.
