Teen Mom UK continues Wednesdays at 8pm on MTV UK!
We all know that there’s definitely no ultimate ‘right’ way to parent, with the mums on Teen Mom UK in particular showing us that despite their different ways of bringing up their children, they’re all wonderful mums.
With everyone’s parenthood experiences varying, Sassi Simmonds has sat down for an honest chat about all things parenthood with her own mum Toni, revealing how she found out she was expecting daughter Zena’ya and how she’s decided to parent her.
Watch Sassi chat to her mum about all things motherhood in this exclusive video:
Chatting about the type of mum she thought she would be before she welcomed little Zena’ya, Sassi tells her mum: “I thought I was gonna be a proper by-the-books mum.”
She goes on to tell her mum off for being so soft on her granddaughter, saying: “You’re soft. You’re just soft, all over soft soft soft. Zena’ya, yeah I’m soft sometimes but when she’s naughty, she goes on time out ‘cause she’s naughty and my child will not disobey me.”
Explaining her reasons for being a softie though, Toni admits: “Yeah, but when I was bringing you three up on my own, I didn’t want to be this big strict mum because I thought I’d, like, push you away from me.”
Sassi then sweetly tells her: “You’re more like a friend aren’t you mum than a mum, bless you. Mum you’re just so cute. Well I’m gonna be strict with my child unfortunately. I’ve got to be or else she’ll just think it’s crazy time all the time.”
The mum-of-one also revealed how she found out she was expecting, telling Toni: “Well when I found out I was pregnant, my room was a tip. I took the pregnancy test in the morning, didn’t say anything just one line, threw it on the floor in the bedroom.
“Started cleaning up - The pregnancy test, it was actually a faint light on there and I thought ‘Pregnant? I’m pregnant!’.”
And lovely Sassi has been doing an amazing job ever since!
