Ex EastEnders star Melissa Suffield reveals son River thinks his dad is ‘a stranger’
FORMER EastEnders star Melissa Suffield has revealed that her son thinks his dad is a “stranger” after spending five months apart.
Since then, the 28-year-old has taken time away from acting, becoming a doting mum to her adorable toddler River.
Sharing responsibilities with her fiance and River’s father, Robert Brendan, the mum-of-one recently shared a minor problem in his upbringing.
Robert, who works as a cruise director, is often out at sea for months at a time, with Melissa sharing that River sees his dad as a complete stranger.
Taking to Instagram, Melissa posted a cute snap of River to her story, writing: “It’s a huge change to his world. He’s having to share his best mate, there’s a strange man in his bed, he’s had his whole existence flipped. Lots to handle for anyone, let alone a toddler born in a pandemic.”
