From the makers of Teen Mom UK, Million Dollar Baby will follow Lateysha and Wynter as they go on a journey to earn Wynter £1 million, through their own clothing range – Baby On Trend – to photoshoots and mummy-baby brand partnerships.
Explaining more about why she’s doing the show during an appearance on Good Morning Britain, where she was in a debate about putting children on social media, Lateysha said: “Everything I’m doing is all with good intentions behind it. Growing up, I didn’t have a good life.
“My mum was a single mum of five and she struggled, we struggled, and I didn’t get to do the things that my friends were doing and things, and everything I’m doing Piers (Morgan) is for her.”
She later added: “Every bit of money we make goes into her savings.”
As well as receiving some wonderful messages of support though, Lateysha also received some criticism after the show, with people claiming she was ‘making money’ out of her daughter and that she was ‘violating Wynter’s privacy’ by putting her on social media.
However, the former Valleys and Big Brother star had a strong message for any critics as she defended her show, tweeting: “I mean it when I say I DONT want (Wynter) ever growing up like I did. My mum majorly struggled financially , she wasn’t able to give us the things the other kids had , she couldn’t afford for me to do any activities all the other children were doing
“She couldn’t afford to buy me a car when I passed my test. I’ve had a bad upbringing growing up around substance abuse , even living in a refuge at one point. But it’s all defined me into the person I am today a great mother , loving and a GO getter. I will give her the life she (…) Deserves. And I don’t care what anybody has to say. She will grow up and thank me for everything that I’ve done for her. She’s everything to me (sic).”
We're super proud of Lateysha for defending herself, and cannot wait to see what she and Wynter get up to on their brand new show!
