Teen Mom UK star Chloe Patton has opened up about her emotional pregnancy journey, sharing her experience of considering going through with an abortion.
Chloe, who is mum to gorgeous little boy Marley with boyfriend Jordan, revealed that finding out she was pregnant was 'not a very nice feeling' for her, explaining that though she did want to have children later in life, she didn't want to have a child at that age - though she has no regrets about it all now.
Exclusively sharing her pregnancy story with MTV, Chloe went on to speak about considering a termination, recalling: "I was nine, ten weeks gone and I wasn't going to have him. I had a scan, booked my appointment. It was all the way in Doncaster because there were no closer appointments.
"So I went on the day, I sat in this room and there were so many girls, so many girls, and that made me feel sick. The fact that all these girls were in here and they were all having the same treatment as me, some younger, some older, I was in shock a little bit.
"They shouted my name and I went into this little room, and I was like, 'I don't know if I want to do this, I don't think this is for me'. She (the nurse) said it was completely fine, that whatever (I) chose to do, no-one will judge, it's (my) choice. Even if (I) leave now and want to come back, (I) still have a little bit of time. I looked at her and told her, 'this is not for me. I'm gonna be a mum and I'm gonna hold my head up high'.
"I walked out of there, looked at my mum with all these girls around and said 'mum, we're going home. This isn't for me'. At that moment, that made me realise I'm going to have a baby, and that I am going to be a mum and I'm gonna do the best I can. Even if I didn't want this at this age."
