Clelia Theodorou of The Only Way Is Essex has given birth to a lovely baby girl, only weeks after a terrifying accident.
The 28-year-old former reality television star was engaged in a horrific vehicle accident that killed her mother and put her in a wheelchair.
‘I am continuing to heal from my terrible injuries after weeks in hospital but it’s with the biggest regret to say that my beautiful Mum couldn’t heal from hers,’ Clelia wrote on Instagram in July, detailing her heartbreak after the horrific incident.
‘The person I never, ever wanted to say goodbye too. Who loved me unconditionally, the pure definition of a mother’s love.’
She added: ‘My heart will never heal from this, life will never ever be the same. It just doesn’t feel real and it never will, I just want my mum back.’
Clelia later posted an update on social media, claiming that her ‘severe’ injuries were the result of ‘the worst day’ of her life, as she posted photographs of herself in a wheelchair and in hospital with leg braces.
She’s now shared some happy news with partner Tommy Cole, sharing a picture of their adorable family of three.

The new parents wrote: ‘The moment we were desperately waiting for came 2 weeks and 2 days early on September 16th 2023 at 6.53pm and we couldn’t be happier 🖤
‘Mummy and Daddy’s little miracle, Cielo Elizabeth Cole decided enough was enough and she was ready to meet us!
‘The respect I have for @cleliatheodorou is immense. She managed to deliver her naturally with just gas and air in just a few hours. A real life superwoman. Both Mum & Baby are doing so well. 👶🏼💫’
Their post was showered in support from co-stars and fans alike, with Love Island star Olivia Attwood writing: ‘Already so in love with her so proud of you both.’
Towie star Georgia Kousoulou added: ‘Aww congratulations you two.’
‘Congratulations she’s an absolute dream,’ Frankie Essex echoed.
This comes after Clelia’s update in August, when she was 35 weeks pregnant.
‘My reality – 35 weeks pregnant, two broken legs and two broken feet,’ she wrote.
‘Broke more bones than I even knew you had in your feet and I’ll forever be setting off metal detectors at airports.
‘Three surgeries later, the healing process is going well. It’s a long, slow process but I’m getting there.
‘I still have another surgery to get through and there have been hard some pushbacks, unforeseen delays and a lot of pain along the way but the main thing is our little baby is battling through it with me, keeping me going each day, making me more determined and giving me so much strength, more than I ever I thought I would have in a situation as difficult as this.’
‘It would be a dream to be standing, up on my feet before our bundle of joy arrives, but I just have to take each day as it comes,’ she wrote.
‘Having never broke a bone in my body or experienced anything even close to the pain and discomfort I’ve been through, I’m truly proud of myself and my body for how far I’ve come since that day, the worst day of my life.’
She then expressed her gratitude for her partner, explaining how he had been ‘supportive, loving and understanding’ and had to ‘turn into being my full-time carer’.
‘I couldn’t get through a single day without him. I can’t thank you enough my love for your unconditional care and love,’ she added.
