Rachel Stevens' Dancing on Ice partner and lover Brendyn Hatfield reportedly became a dad just four months before his relationship with the S Club 7 singer was revealed.
According to reports, Brendyn, 37, fathered the child while in a relationship with a TV executive connected with the ITV programme.
The professional skater, who was also Rachel's Dancing on Ice partner last year, split from his wife Jessica who also works a figure skater.

Brendyn's son was reportedly born in December last year and Brendyn has been named as the father on the birth certificate.
However The Sun on Sunday revealed that Rachel was dating Brendyn following the breakdown of her own marriage last year.
Since the news of Brendyn's secret child broke, sources say the controversy surrounding the relationship could affect his future with ITV.
An insider told The Sun: "Bosses remind skaters of their responsibilities before each series.
"There will be long, hard discussions before Brendyn is confirmed for another series. His future is in the air."
Rachel and Brendyn were spotted together last week after it was rumoured that he has moved into her £2million home in North London.
The 45-year-old first met the pro skater in November 2021 when they began training for Dancing on Ice.
The pair quickly formed a close bond but became the third pair to be eliminated from the show.
Not so long after and just one month before her 13th wedding anniversary, Rachek revealed that she had split from her property developer husband Alex Bourne, with whom she has two daughters with.
In February, Rachel also revealed that she had moved out of her family home.
Taking to Instagram, the star shared the new with her followers, she said: "Hey all. Hope you're really well. What a week it's been… sorry I've been MIA.
"I've just moved home today and I'm up to my ears in boxes and feeling such a mix of emotions.
"I'm so incredibly grateful for the love and support I have around me. Trusting the process and the magic of new beginnings."
Although Brendyn and Rachel haven't gone public with their realtionship, the singer was previously asked if she had enjoyed her time on last year’s series of Dancing on Ice.
She said: "I met incredible people. I still see Brendyn."
