Ulrika Jonsson heartache over partner walking out as daughter had major heart op

Former Gladiators host Ulrika Jonsson has opened up in her latest column where she relived was left to raise baby Bo alone after splitting from her partner Markus Kempen.

Bo's father Markus Kempen was in a relationship with Ulrika, but the romance broke down soon after their baby was born.

The couple then broke up shortly after Bo underwent a scary and life-saving heart operation.

Ulrika has revealed that the relationship wasn't strong and that it wasn't helped by Markus accepting a job abroad shortly after baby Bo arrived.

In her most recent exclusive column for The Sun, the star wrote: "As I was in hospital struggling to get my baby out, he was outside the labour ward smoking Gauloises cigarettes and plotting his escape.

"After her first operation at six days old, I was allowed to take her home. On the way, in the car, he announced he’d accepted a job abroad and would be leaving imminently.

"I sat in the back of the car, cradling my child – not ours. I knew she was chronically ill, might not survive future cardiac operations — and had just been abandoned by one half of her parents."

Ulrika then revealed that her daughter Bo, who is in her early twenties, is currently away in Greece working as a nanny.

She then shared her thoughts and feelings on what would happen is Bo bumped into her dad by chance while the pair are on the same island.

The star said that it could "open a can of worms" but she would fully support Bo in whatever she wants to do.

"If she [Bo] wants to meet him, I have always supported her and always will. It has been a discombobulated feeling of hope and fear these past few weeks…

"If he can enrich or enhance her life, who am I to stand in their way? I have never tainted her mind about her biological father."
