Kiss-and-tell woman reveals she's expecting a baby with Amy Winehouse's husband
Amy Winehouse’s estranged husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, has reportedly got another woman pregnant while in rehab.
In a kiss-and-tell interview with the News of the World this weekend, mother-of-two Gilleen Morris revealed she slept with Blake six weeks ago and he’s promised to help her raise their child together.
‘When I told him I was pregnant he said, “Oh f***!” But he vowed to stand by me and raise the child,’ 31-year-old Gilleen said.
‘Initially I was planning to have an abortion but Blake’s vow has completely thrown me.
‘I never planned for any more children. Our fling was just a bit of fun. I never imagined these consequences.
‘I’m now confused and don’t know what to do.’
Gilleen, whose has a 7-year-old daughter and a 12-year-old son already, met Blake at the Phoenix Futures Rehab Centre in Sheffield, Yorkshire.
She claims he came onto her within hours of her arriving, and that they slept together two days later.
‘He was always coming over to chat to me and making me laugh. He was really nice.
‘He told me people used to go down to the communal lounge, nicknamed the snug, late at night to drink vodka and have sex.
‘He asked me if I wanted to go down with him and said he’d keep a spot warm for me. I knew what he meant – and that was sex.’
Although Gilleen claims she didn’t know who Blake was when they first met, he did later bring up the subject of his estranged wife when her photo appeared in a newspaper.
‘He asked me if I thought she was pretty,’ revealed Gilleen. ‘I laughed and said no. Blake said that he thought she was attractive but not pretty. I never once felt guilty about sleeping with Blake, because he told me he was never going back to her.
“He told me, “It’s over between us.”
‘It was just a bit of fun and it was never meant to last. I wasn’t going to be there forever and neither was Blake.’
Although the pair haven’t seen each other since Gilleen was asked to leave the centre for disobeying house rules, they have spoken on the phone and Gilleen is adamant Blake will stand by her and the baby.
‘It’s nice that he’s thinking about taking the responsibilities of becoming a dad.
‘He’s too young to settle down, but if he could be a good parent that’s something different.
‘It would be good for him. Having a child gives you a new outlook on life. You see things differently.
‘Blake would want to protect the baby. It could help beat his drug problems.’
