5 After Midnight star Kieran Alleyne announced he was going to be a father in the build up to last year’s X Factor final. However, the star has now revealed another surprise – he has split from pregnant girlfriend Sophie Johnson just weeks before the baby is due.
Although he has been dating Sophie for 16 months, Kieran feels he cannot see a future with her. However, he is resolved to be there for her and their newborn son. Kieran told The Sun: “No matter what our relationship status may be, I still consider Sophie to be my best friend. I know she will be the most amazing mother to our son. I’m looking forward to us starting a new chapter together as great friends and committed parents to our baby boy. We are both incredibly excited to welcome him into the world together.”5 After Midnight, who signed for X Factor judge Simon Cowell’s Syco record label in January, are about to release their debut single – but Kieran says that won’t distract him. A friend said: “Kieran will still be at the birth and all his fans and friends know how important that is to him. He is also committed to supporting both Sophie and their son going forward.”
