When she got pregnant with boyfriend Billy Webb the pair said having a child together was going to be their “greatest chapter yet”.
What Shaughna didn’t forsee was her baby’s dad getting arrested for drug offences.
After being left “shocked and blindsided” by police findings during a dramatic raid, the reality star geared up for being a single parent.
Now she has opened up about her experience of being a mum on new podcast Oh Baby! that she co-hosts with best friend Holly Connolly.
Although she does not have a partner by her side for support, Shaughna told listeners she feels like “mum of the year”.
She joked: “I’m going to wear the title as a badge of honour – I don’t have any guilt about being a single Mum it’s just the hand of cards that I was dealt. I just hope that one day Lucia doesn’t write a diss track about me!”
However, she was heartbroken by Lucia’s first words, given the complicated family situation.
She added: “All I get is Dada, dada and I’m like ‘Wow – a son would not do me dirty like this! It’s just rude.
“I look at her and go ‘Mama’ and she’s like ‘not today, probably not next month, maybe not ever’. For banter she’s probably going to say Nana first.”
The Love Island contestant previously told OK! Magazine that although she was devastated by the situation with Billy, she was keeping positive about her life with her little girl.
She said: “I’m good at just saying, ‘Right, the show must go on’.
“Billy’s not around, but I don’t want to say that I’m doing it on my own, because I’m absolutely not – my family’s incredible.
“It’s going to be different, but I don’t want to say it’s going to be bad.”
