Shocked woman finds out her boyfriend cheated on her with THIRTY lovers – even while she was in labour having his baby
- Coral Gibb, of Suffolk, found boyfriend cheating on her while she was in labour
- Heartbroken mother, 23, said ex Steven Lee ‘ruined the happiest day of my life’
- She later discovered that the 34-year-old had cheated on her with 30 women
A woman has revealed how she discovered her boyfriend had cheated on her with 30 women – even while she was in labour having his baby.
Coral Gibb, 23, from Lowestoft, Suffolk, said her ex Steve Lee, 34, ‘ruined the happiest day of her life’ upon discovering he was having an affair while giving birth to their daughter Bella.
The mother, who had been with Steve for five years, rushed to see the midwife after her waters broke while pregnant with their second baby.
But when she popped home to pack a hospital bag, sheepish Steve appeared flustered at the top of the stairs and insisted she leave immediately.
It was only while on the way to hospital and having contractions that Coral discovered why he’d wanted her out of the way – as he had another woman in their bed.
After giving birth on June 4, 2016, Coral questioned her boyfriend – who had turned up an hour later – and he admitted he was having an affair after confronted with a series of emails on his phone from another woman.

‘He ruined the happiest day of my life,’ Coral said. ‘He had a cuddle with our baby but then I was so thirsty I asked him to get me a cold drink.
‘While he was gone I scrolled through his phone as I was so suspicious – and found countless emails between him and another woman. It was obvious what was going on.
‘When he came back I went berserk demanding to know what’s been going on and he admitted he’d slept with another woman and said he was sorry. It was too late – I couldn’t trust him.
‘He was cheating on me while I was in labour so what else would he do? It was unforgivable and I made the right decision because later he admitted he’d slept with around 30 people while we were together.’
She added: ‘I don’t know how he found the time but that was it – he moved out the next day when I came home from hospital with our baby girl.

But when the mother (pictured right) popped home to pack a hospital bag, sheepish Steve (pictured left with Coral) appeared flustered at the top of the stairs and insisted she leave immediately
‘He’s a nightmare – a true love rat. He kept apologising and begged me back but I would never go back to someone who could do that.’
Coral became suspicious after Steve, who she’d met in a nightclub at the age of 17, began vanishing on nights out.
She added: ‘He was always so attentive when we first got together and we had a great life going out and partying all the time.
‘But it wasn’t long before I began feeling unwell and discovered I was pregnant. I was worried about what Steve would say as it was so soon, but he was thrilled.’
Coral had a baby boy, Buddy, but needed four blood transfusions as her placenta broke away during the birth causing her to haemorrhage.
‘When I came round, Steve was holding our baby and looked terrified. He said he’d thought I was going to die and told me how much he loved me. I was so happy.’
Back home Steve, a factory worker, did everything for Coral and Buddy while she recovered, but as soon as she was better he began going out with friends.

‘I loved being a mother and looking after Buddy, but Steve wanted to be out all the time, drinking and having a laugh with his mates,’ Coral said. ‘I think he thought I was a little boring now I’d had a baby. He’d ask me to join him but I just wanted to stay home with Buddy.’
The couple were drifting apart but then Coral discovered she was pregnant again.
‘I was thrilled,’ she said ‘Buddy was around 18 months and I began sorting through his things to see what we could use for the new baby. I realised he’d grown out of his buggy but it was too big for a newborn so I put it up for sale on Facebook.’
Within minutes a local woman called Julie (not her real name) offered to buy the designer Quinny Moodd pram for £100, but unaware to Coral, this would kick off an affair between the neighbour and her boyfriend.
She recalled: ‘I knew her as everyone knows everyone around me and I knew her boyfriend too. She came round to the house with the money.

‘Steve went to the door and they chatted for a while over the buggy. A few days later, I found some extra parts for it so I messaged Julie to see if she wanted them. She said yes and Steve went to meet her with them.
‘I didn’t think anything of it until I saw that she’d liked one of his posts on Facebook. She was forever commenting on his posts after that.
‘One day Steve posted a quote about being loyal to your woman and she put two laughing emojis underneath it. I prickled – it was like she knew something I didn’t.
‘I confronted him about her and he told me not to be stupid – she was just being friendly as we’d sold her the pram.
She added: ‘A week before the baby was due, I started craving sweets. I asked Steve to get some for me from the local shop – and he didn’t come back.
‘I was furious – hed obviously met up with a mate and gone to the pub or something. But then I felt a twinge and what felt like my water’s going.
‘He ruined the happiest day of my life,’ Coral (pictured recently) said. She met Steve in a club when she was 17-years-old
‘I rang the midwife who said I was in slow labour and that it was my back waters. I took Buddy and went to stay at my mother’s so that I had help in case I went into labour. I sent Steve a text to tell him where we were and that I wasn’t happy with him.’
But her contractions became stronger overnight and the next morning she decided to go to hospital.
She explained: ‘I didn’t have any of my stuff so thought I’d pop home to get my hospital bag with everything for me and the baby in it.
‘But as I opened the front door, I heard Steve running across the bedroom floor. Then he appeared at the top of the stairs. He looked flustered.
‘I asked him where he’d been and he said out for drinks with friends. I didn’t have the energy for an argument so I asked him to look after Buddy as I was going to see the midwife.
The next day Coral (pictured) took Bella home – and watched as Steve moved out. When he came round she asked him to tell her truth
‘He couldn’t get me out of the house quick enough, saying “Off you go, you don’t want to be late.”
‘I couldn’t understand why but on the way I suddenly realised – he must have had another woman up in our bedroom. I was angry but the contractions were becoming stronger so I had to focus on that.’
She didn’t have the baby for another three days and had her mother with her throughout the labour.
Coral recalled: ‘I had a beautiful girl who we’d decided to call Bella. Steve turned up an hour later and held her, saying she’s beautiful.
‘I was so thirsty and asked him to get me a drink. That’s when I realised he’d left the phone I’d given him – as his wasn’t working – on the side and I quickly scrolled through it.
‘I saw loads of messages between him and Julie and realised they had been having an affair. I was really upset – she’d been in my bed while I was in labour with his baby.

‘When he walked back in I screamed “How could you?” He looked confused so I held up the phone and he realised he’d been caught out. He said he was sorry, but I wanted him out of my sight.’
The next day Coral took Bella home – and watched as Steve moved out. When he came round she asked him to tell her truth.
She explained: ‘I said it didn’t matter anymore as we’d split up and asked how many women there had been. I couldn’t believe it when he started reeling off their names.
‘I could hardly keep up. I counted them and there were 27 – I felt like punching him. Since then he’s admitted there were even more!’
Coral is now single but sees Steve every day when he comes to visit the couple’s two children.
‘He’s a great dad,’ she said ‘But he’s a terrible boyfriend. I don’t want to share my man with another woman – let alone 30 of them!’
Steve said: ‘I’ve slept with around 30 women – it happened when I was going out with my friends. I didn’t think about it at the time but when Coral found out it was bad.
‘I do regret it – it’s quite disgusting isn’t it? We split up after five years when Bella was born. Coral was very upset but we are friends now because of the kids. I have a girlfriend now and have learnt my lesson – I would never act like that now.’
