SHAMED football ace Danny Simpson is expecting a baby with reality telly star Melissa Reeves.
The Ex On The Beach star, 26, posted an ultrasound image and added: “Baby of Melissa and Danny.”
Huddersfield Town’s Danny, 33, found guilty of assaulting a previous girlfriend, has not publicly acknowledged Melissa’s pregnancy — but friends say the defender is standing by her.
One said: “Danny and Melissa’s relationship didn’t work out but he has vowed to support her financially and emotionally.
“They have agreed to co-parent their little girl as best they can. It’s a shame they haven’t worked things out as a couple.
“Melissa understands why Danny is not publicising the fact that he’s the father of her child — but she said he’s been great behind the scenes.”
The friend added: “Melissa has wanted for nothing during her pregnancy.
“Danny has picked up the tab for the baby shower and helped kit out the nursery in Melissa’s house. Whatever she’s needed throughout he’s been there.”
