Speaking to OK! magazine she said: “When I found out I was pregnant, I said: ‘I want to work so hard to give her the best in life,’ but it felt like Brad wasn’t thinking about that.

“After Polly arrived, he was sleeping in a different room. Towards the end I became more like a friend and his mum.

“Even when he came home from work he’d have a cuddle with her and he did that a little bit but then he’d go upstairs.

“I think he was just so over it. When she was crying in the night, he wouldn’t come in and say, ‘Can I help?’ It was always me.”

Bradley has also spoken out about the shock split and admitted he’s finding it hard being without Amy.

He said: “I’m adjusting to the split from Amy; it’s hard. If Amy feels like I wasn’t helping with Polly it was because I’ve been very busy with work.

“I’m a tree surgeon and ground worker, so it’s dangerous if I’m tired.

“It’s all new to Amy, having a baby, and she’s been very tired – particularly after five days in.

“Everything was my fault and I never had a say, so I just kept out of it. I wasn’t Amy’s priority – other people were.”

The former couple decided to end their romance just last week.

Amy’s rep confirmed that they have parted but will still “remain friends” to focus on Polly.

They said: “Amy has not thrown Brad out, but they have split up amicably.

“Brad will of course see Polly whenever he likes and they will remain friends.”

Meanwhile a source told The Sun’s Bizarre column: “It’s over for good now, Amy is fed up.

“They’ve decided between them that the relationship won’t work and Bradley has moved out.

“He will still see their baby Polly and Amy wants to make that work.”

Meanwhile Amy is enjoying being a mother to adorable Polly.

The tot was born on April 30.

When asked about how it feels to be a first time mum she said: “Do you know what I’m absolutely loving it. I knew that I’d love her more than anything but I just can’t believe how much I love her.

“It’s just unconditional love.”
