For most of us, romance is the last thing on our minds when we’re just weeks from giving birth. But at 8 months pregnant, single Sarah Connors, 28, from Bristol, joined a dating site, and found herself a husband!
Sarah and the baby’s biological dad broke up before she realised she was expecting. Still single at around 7 months pregnant, and in hope of finding love, Sarah signed up to app Oasis Dating. She says she was totally upfront about her pregnancy.
“I assumed that no one would want to date me while I was pregnant, but I felt lonely seeing other couples with babies, so I joined the app to keep myself entertained more than anything else!” she told the Mail Online.
Just weeks after joining she agreed to a date with shop assistant Lance – while she was 8 months pregnant. The chemistry was instant and… boom! They were engaged within 5 months of dating and are now married. Sarah’s daughter Elodie now calls Lance Daddy.
“I know there’s a taboo around dating during pregnancy but my family and friends were very supportive. If I hadn’t done it, I would never have met Lance,” Sarah said. “I would encourage other pregnant women to go on dates if that’s what they want to do. You might not find the man of your dreams, but if you’re unhappy alone it’s better to be having fun.”
