TOWIE star Chloe Lewis has split from her boyfriend of seven years, Danny Flasher.
The couple have a four-year-old son, Beau, whom they welcomed in October 2019.
Chloe revealed the sad news on her Instagram story, after a fan asked: “Are you a single mother?”
She replied: “Yes. It’s been a complicated few years.
“I’m quite private about my personal life, it’s hard to deal with everything, let alone people’s opinions.
“But try my best to show what I can.”
The 32-year-old posted a reply with a sweet photo of her and her son playing in the park.
Chloe also spoke candidly about how she feels her life hasn’t gone as planned.
When asked by another fan how she copes with “the feeling of not being where you want to be”, Chloe replied: “Well… If I’m being honest, I thought I would get married and have 3 children at age 32.
“Life doesn’t always go as planned (which I find really difficult) but I think everyone has their own journey.
“You have to live on your own terms and not put too much pressure on yourself.
“Don’t compare yourself to others.
“I’ve had a bad two years and now, I’m a single mother but I have Beau there, that’s my focus and priority.”
“I always think just do what you want to do and what makes you happy and everything will fall into place. That’s what I’m hoping for anyway.”
She concluded: “I talk about life with my dad and a man’s perspective on things always helps me too.
“Having someone to lighten the load is always important.”
However, despite being heartbroken, Chloe revealed that she has not given up on finding love or growing a family in the future.
“I always wanted a big family,” she explained to another follower.
“Becoming a mother was harder than I expected, but I really enjoyed it. I didn’t feel like it. So, never say never!”
Chloe first gained attention when she joined the cast of Towie in 2015.
Fans were intrigued by her romance with co-star Jake Hall at the time.
Two months after breaking up with Jake, Chloe met businessman Danny but he did not want to participate in the show.

At the time, she said: “There are no plans for him to join Towie. I asked him but he didn’t want to.
“He doesn’t really like being in the spotlight and doesn’t chase fame – which I like.”
