Is it teething time for your little one?
Binky Felstead opens up about feeling isolated as a single mum

Binky Felstead has always been open about life as a single mum.

The former Made in Chelsea star is mum to India, who will celebrate her second birthday in June.

India's dad is former MIC star Josh 'JP' Patterson, who split with Binky 15 months after the birth.

The 28-year-old has since been vocal about the struggles of single motherhood and how tough she is finding things.

She told Women's Health, ''Of course there are times where I think, ‘F**k, I’m on my own and I’ve got a baby.''

She continued, ''But I’ve always been a believer in what’s meant to be is meant to be and that things happen for a reason and that’s how I’ve just kind of led my life.”

Social media didn't help things when she and Josh did split, even though she was slightly used to facing backlash online from her MIC days.

She said, ''I was home with India and I would see on Instagram that everyone was out and about and I just felt really isolated.''

She continued, ''I can get quite low scrolling through Instagram and seeing all these happy, or what looks like happy, families - mums and dads and babies”.

While Binky and Josh still have a good relationship with each other, she does worry about what will happen when either of them finds another partner.

She revealed, ''It’s going to throw a spanner in the works when one of us meets someone. I know we’re both adult enough to be kind of fine.''

She added, ''I just think it’s going to be quite weird at the beginning. It’s little things like, I can still go to his parents’ house for the weekend with him and India. We want to keep that.”

We can see that she is an amazing mum to little India and we know that no matter what happens, the trio will always be a family.
