Sassi Simmonds' bond with Zena'ya, her adorable little daughter who she has with boyfriend Darren, seriously warmed our hearts during the last series of Teen Mom UK.

WATCH SASSI REVEAL ALL ABOUT BEING MUM TO DAUGHTER ZENA’YA IN THIS EXCLUSIVE VIDEO:
Opening up about what it’s really like to be a young mum in an exclusive interview with MTV, Sassi revealed what’s been the hardest part for her: “Being a young mum is definitely hard because you see on social media all other girls my age going here, going there, doing this, buying that, and I’m here cleaning bottles, changing nappies, keeping my house clean – but you know what? I actually wouldn’t change having Zena’ya because she’s the best part of me to be honest.”
The mum-of-one added that she’s definitely experienced the many highlights of being a parent, telling MTV: “I found a best friend in somebody that can’t even communicate with me, that is the best part.
“Like, I can never be scared of being alone because when I just think of being alone, I’m not really alone, am I? I have Zena’ya so that’s the best thing for me.”
How sweet is that?
Explaining that she secretly hopes Zena’ya might become a model or a vet, Sassi went on to reveal the biggest fears she has for her daughter: “My biggest fear is not doing good enough for Zena’ya.
“I want to give her everything that I can ever give her and I want her to have such a good relationship with her dad so she knows what a good guy should do when she’s older.”
Away from her daughter, Sassi also opened up about what’s changed in her love life since starting a family, explaining: “My intimate life has only really got started again since having Zena’ya – I’d say within the last month and a half.
“Because before that I felt like, 'I’m a mum, I shouldn’t be doing this stuff now', but a lot of things have took place since then and it feels like I’m just ready to start my sex life again.”
We cannot wait to see what's next for Sassi and her little family!
