Lydia Bright has just become a mother for the first time, welcoming her daughter Loretta Rose in February.
She announced in August that she was having her baby with Lee Cronin as they split up, explaining that the baby was planned but their relationship didn’t work out.
However the pair are now back on, ready to “try to make a go of things”. This will be the third time that the couple have got back together.
Here we take a look back at Lydia's romantic history…
James ‘Arg’ Argent
Former The Only Way Is Essex couple James Argent and Lydia Bright called time on their long-term relationship in 2016, after seven years of an on/off romance.
Lydia and Arg’s relationship was the main focus for some time on the ITVBe show and even pre-dated the programme as they had been dating on and off since they were teenagers.
Their first split in 2012 when it was rumoured that Arg had cheated on his girlfriend, putting an end to the relationship.
After a year-long romance with Tom Kilbey, Lydia and Arg reunited during a TOWIE trip to Marbella where they spent the night together.
But that was quickly followed by the revelation that Arg had enjoyed a secret romp with Gemma Collins on the same week he reunited with Lydia,
Lydia and her former flame were not on the best of terms after parting ways for good and she also made the decision to leave TOWIE to avoid becoming another storyline.
Arg has since declared his love for Gemma, which Lydia has more than welcomed in after moving on herself.
Speaking to OK! Online in February 2018, she said: "Obviously I still care about James a lot. We ended on bad terms, but we ended up becoming friends again and I just think we weren’t meant to be. I of course wish him happiness with anyone else, and I do love Gemma."

Following her split from Arg, Lydia went on to enjoy a year-long romance with her TOWIE co-star Tom Kilbey in 2013.
Things were going well for the pair who would often take to Twitter to talk about their relationship, but things came to a head when Tom cryptically tweeted in June 2014: “New day, new week, new chapter. Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
Lydia never addressed the split but it was believed the romance ended due to hectic work schedules. Tom was working out in LA back in 2016 but has since returned to London.
Lydia first met Lee Cronin back in 2017 in Ibiza and told OK! online exclusively during Polo at the Celtic Manor in 2018 that her sister Georgia was the reason for their romance.
"It was her, we were on a night out and Georgia pulled him back to the after party and we ended up hitting it off,” Lydia said of her older sibling.
She added: "I wasn't looking to meet anyone, he wasn't looking to meet anyone. I just felt like I'd known him forever, we just fell in love with one another so quickly."

The couple first split in January 2019. However, they decided to get back together and try for a child, but 11 weeks in to Lydia’s pregnancy Lee ended things.
She told the Sun: “We were bickering and arguing, but it was still a massive shock when he dumped me. I just think some people react differently to stress and pressure.“
However, she has revealed that he won her over before she had Loretta by being supportive and attending pre-natal appointments.
The blonde bombshell said: “By the time of the birth, we’d got to a really good stage and we had the discussion that we were going to try to make a go of things as a family again.“
But, Lydia insisted she is not scared about being a single mother if things don't work again as she said: “I’m just not worrying. You never know what the future will hold and while having this baby by myself initially was a big fear, I know now that I’m capable of doing it if it doesn’t work out.
“I’ve got all my family around me, and Lee will still be involved. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t – that’s life. I’m not a failure.”
