Congratulations are in order for Jeremy Meeks and his girlfriend Chloe Green – they are having a baby.
Us Weekly was first to report the couple is expecting their first child together. Meeks shares a biological son and two stepchildren with his estranged wife, Melissa.
Meeks and Green – the billionaire heiress of Topshop – began dating last summer after the paps caught them kissing aboard a yacht off the coast of Turkey. One of the photos was sent in a private message to Melissa, who was stunned to learn of the pair’s relationship.
In an interview with Mail Online, Melissa spoke of the hurt and disappointment she felt at seeing the images of her husband of eight years with another woman.
“I know it takes two to tango but she knew he was married. To me, that’s unforgivable. My whole world has been torn apart by this. What do I tell our children? My heart is broken,” she told the publication. “What sort of woman would do something like this to another woman? My marriage wasn’t perfect but I thought it could be saved until this happened.”
She added, “Of course I’m angry at [Chloe Green]. What she did is unforgivable. And I’m angry at him too. What they did, destroyed my entire world. Did either of them think about the children and how this will affect them? They’re the innocent.”
Jeremy filed for divorce last year October and is seeking joint legal and physical custody of their 7-year-old son, Jeremy Meeks Jr.
Meeks became a viral sensation after the Stockton Police Department posted his mugshot on Facebook in 2014. Social media users dubbed the ex-felon with the piercing blue eyes and chiseled features ‘Prison Bae.’ Shortly after his stint in jail, Meeks was offered a modeling contract and made his runway debut at NYFW’s Philipp Plein show last year.
