Emmerdales Hayley Tamaddon now single mum after bombshell split from fiancé
Former Emmerdale star Hayley Tamaddon has announced she is a single mum after splitting from her fiancé.
The soap star, 45, said she's now celebrating Mother's Day as a single parent to her son Jasper and that her life had been "turned upside down".
The actress got engaged to estate agent Adrian back in 2019 – just weeks after revealing she was pregnant with her son.
Opening up to fans on social media, proud mum Hayley admitted she "never set out to be a single parent" but was feeling grateful for her beloved son Jasper.
She wrote:" This Mother’s Day is different for me as I’m now a single mum.
"Mine and Jasper’s life has been turned upside down over the past few months but I realise the best thing to come out of this is Jasper. For he is all I need… and all I’ve ever wanted.
"He makes me so happy! I never set out to be a single parent… but I DID set out to be the best mum I could be, and that hasn’t changed. I’m so lucky I get to be his mummy."
She went on to explain she was proud of herself for overcoming the "many obstacles" she's faced after Jasper's birth.
The star continued: "And I’m very proud of myself for overcoming the many obstacles I’ve faced since he was born.

She previously revealed she wasn't sure if she would ever be able to have children.
Hayley was friends with Adrian for five years before they finally fell for eachother and entered a romantic relationship together.
