A pregnant former The Only Way Is Essex actress has disclosed that she has broken legs and feet as a result of a vehicle accident that killed her mother.
Clelia Theodorou, 28, said last month that she was in a catastrophic car accident with her mother, who was unable to ‘heal’ from her injuries.
The TV star, who is 35 weeks pregnant with her first child with partner Tommy Cole, has now revealed the details of her ‘severe’ injuries from ‘the worst day’ of her life.
Clelia uploaded a series of photographs of herself in a wheelchair and in hospital in leg braces in a social media update this week.
‘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.’
She continued: ‘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.
‘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.
Many people responded positively to her tweet, including some former Towie stars.
Georgia Kousoulou wrote: ‘Oh you strong beautiful girl! This baby has been sent down to you.’
‘This baby will bring you so much happiness and unconditional love. You’ve got this,’ Chloe Lewis shared.
Meanwhile Ferne McCann added: ‘Sending you love darling. Your little baby is giving you so much strength.’
When announcing her mother’s death, Clelia shared a black and white snap kissing her mum and wrote: ‘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.’
‘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, a former Miss Great Britain, originally debuted on Towie in 2018 as Dan Edgar’s love interest, but she was fired three years later.
The Only Way Is Essex is available to watch on ITVX.
