    I can only say that I’m very happy that Bradley and Angel are still together and that they have a child.

  2. These two haven’t been together since Merlin ended. Her child is not with Bradley. He was engaged in 2017 to another girl but they split in 2018. He is currently single we believe.

    • Why do some people assume they know anything definitive about the lives of people they have never met? We know what they show us and yes, we know he was engaged. We also know they split. Relationships – our lives – can be messy. Especially when there are unresolved emotions involved. Let’s just support their work instead of providing definitive answers we know nothing about.

  3. Im pretty sure if it was his child, he’d be announcing somthing like that. The birth of a first child is partucularly special.
