CHECK OUT EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LATESHYA IN AN EXCLUSIVE VIDEO BELOW:
Lateysha is 25 and originally from Port Talbot in Wales. She now lives in Bromely with her daughter Wynter, who she co-parents with Wynter's dad Ben Charles.
She looks familiar….
The reality star shot to fame in 2012 when she appeared on MTV’s The Valleys before she rocked up on our screens in 2016 on Big Brother.
Speaking exclusively to MTV she says: “A lot of people know me from The Valleys days and they still think I’m that wild banshee running about the place with my bum and boobs out, drinking every weekend.”
But her fame took a downturn after the show ended. She says: "After The Valley’s finished I had a mid-life crisis, well probably like a quarter life crisis and I moved to Miami for six months. Then I came back and got pregnant straight away. I was actually on benefits, believe it or not, for a couple of months and I was like 'oh this really is not the life for me'."
Reality star to popstar...
Our million dollar babe released her own single in 2014 called Out Of Control and the video features her fellow Valleys castmate.
We've all experienced Lateysha catching our hearts on TV but what about her life before?
She reveals: “My life growing up, to be honest, wasn’t that pleasant. My mum was a single mum of five, my dad was never in my life. She tried her best but there was only so much she could do. My friends would have the best clothing and go to dance school but I couldn’t do any of that. I feel like that’s moulded me into the person I am today.”
But now she has found a whole new inspiration in life after the birth of her daughter. She says: “Before I didn’t have any priorities so I spent all my money on clothes and drinking and partying. I didn’t care about anything, but since [Wynter] has come into my life, everything I do is for her and I just feel like she has moulded me into the woman I was always meant to be.”
Lateysha started her own business, a mother and baby clothing brand, called Baby on Trend and tbh we want everything.
She says: “My biggest personal achievement is creating my own brand and it's always something I wanted to do in life but when Wynter came along it gave me a kick-start sort of thing. Even though it’s hard and it’s tiring, it is amazing. I can now officially say I’m a businesswoman."
Million dollar baby…
We're pretty sure that the world is about to see a whole new side to the reality star and she hopes so too. She admits: "I hope that people watching will learn that I’m not the same person I was five years ago. I’m an amazing mum and no one can take that away from me. I’ve got my head screwed on, I know where I’m going in life and I don’t give up."
Million Dollar Baby starts Wednesday 9th May at 8pm only on MTV! And in the meantime check out the show on Instagram @MTVMillionDollarBaby.
