Pregnant Clelia Theodorou builds nursery after tragic crash that broke legs and killed mum

Clelia Theodorou has shared a glimpse of the stunning nursery she's created for her baby, who is due to be born in just a matter of weeks.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star, 28, took to Instagram on Friday to show off the items she's purchased for the space, which is decorated with a neutral colour scheme, as her due date draws closer.

The mum-to-be, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tommy Cole, showed off a black and white cot as well as an adorable nappy caddy and decorations for her little one's nursery, including a ballon-shaped ornament with 'Our miracle' written across it.

Clelia, who appeared on TOWIE in 2018, has been documenting her pregnancy journey on Instagram, including her recovery after being involved in a tragic car crash earlier this year, which claimed the life of her beloved mother.

In June, she told how she was left in “paralysing” pain following the death of her mother. Her unborn child, who she is was thankfully unharmed in the smash – but Clelia was left with “terrible injuries”.

She shared an update on her condition with fans on social media, where she revealed she had undergone three surgeries and still had “another to get through”.

She wrote: “My reality – 35 weeks pregnant, two broken legs and two broken feet. Broke more bones than I even knew you had in your feet and I’ll forever be setting off metal detectors at airports. Three surgeries later, the healing process is going well. It’s a long, slow process but I’m getting there.

“I still have another surgery to get through and there have been hard some pushbacks, unforeseen delays and a lot of pain along the way but the main thing is our little baby is battling through it with me, keeping me going each day, making me more determined and giving me so much strength, more than I ever I thought I would have in a situation as difficult as this.”

Alongside the message, Clelia shared some photos of her hospital stay – including one of her in a wheelchair with two black cast boots, cradling her baby bump. In another shot, she is pictured in a hospital bed hooked up to an oxygen tube.

Clelia went on to say she did not yet know if she would be able to stand on her feet when the baby arrived – although that would be a “dream”. She added: “Having never broke a bone in my body or experienced anything even close to the pain and discomfort I’ve been through, I’m truly proud of myself and my body for how far I’ve come since that day, the worst day of my life.”
