When Rhiannon Saunders looks at her two-week-old baby girl, she's overwhelmed with love.

But she also feels more confused than ever over her own mum's decision to abandon her.

MUM OF 12: 'MY KIDS ARE BETTER OFF WITHOUT ME'

Tabitha Nimes, 39, made headlines earlier this year for dumping her 12 children with their dad so she could move in with her toyboy. She then insisted to Closer that her kids were "better off" without her.

It's now been five months since Rhiannon- who's since moved in with her boyfriend of two years, Jordan Sargent, 17, and his family- has heard from her mum.

CONFIRMED: KIERA KNIGHTLEY PREGNANT WITH FIRST CHILD

Rhiannon, 19, says: "I'll never forgive Mum for walking out on us. I don't want anything more to do with her. Having Bella-Rose has made me realise how important family is. I could never abandon her. I've never felt a love like I feel for my daughter. Every bit of me wants to protect her.

"This is Bella-Rose's first Christmas and I've already bought her little Minnie Mouse baby gros and a bouncer. Christmas is about family. I don't understand why Mum doesn't have those feelings."
