Getting honest about being a mum and giving an update on how things have been since the last series, Sassi exclusively told MTV: “I feel like the biggest challenge I’m facing right now is trying to realise that I’ve got a baby now and my life isn’t my own anymore.
“Sometimes I can get really worked up and upset with myself because it’s like, ‘oh well I’ve told Darren I don’t want to be with him but he can go out and do this and I’m left here with the baby’. I feel like motherhood is really really difficult.”
We think you’re doing a brilliant job, Sassi!
Speaking of Darren, Sassi revealed that things turned tough for them after series two: “At the end of series two, I feel like me and Darren hit a really really rocky stage in our relationship.
“We was arguing over who was doing more with the baby, who was doing more in the house money-wise and I’d say now, both me and Darren are just trying to be good parents for Zena’ya really.”
Giving an update on how her little daughter has changed, the 19-year-old added: “Zena’ya has changed into a whole different little person now.
"She can now walk, run, feed herself. She melts my heart, she’s so cute.”
And despite the tough times, Sassi’s feeling very grateful to be a mum, telling MTV: “I’m just loving being alive, breathing, being a mum to Zena’ya – that’s all I’m really loving right now.”
