Tyrone told Ruby: “You know that we’ve spoke about mummy being your forever mummy, reg? But there was another lady who grew you in her belly?
“Well last night we found out that she died. It’s sad. It’s okay for you to be sad, or not and it’s okay to feeling anything or nothing… does that make sense?”
Luckily his ex Fiz has by his side to help with the difficult situation.
“Tell you what I think, why don’t we all go to the park? Have a think about it, maybe we can talk about it later,” sy het gese.

Tyrone and Kirsty got together in 2011, and although he was planning on leaving her because of her anger issues, she fell pregnant with Ruby.
He tried to work on their relationship but she began to physically hurt Tyrone and he turned to Fiz for support.
The pals started seeing each other in secret, and Kirsty was left furious when she found out they wanted to take their relationship further.
During a heated argument the abuser fell down the stairs and blamed Tyrone, saying that he was the abusive one and nearly ended up going to prison for it.
However she soon confessed the truth and told Tyrone that once she was out of prison she’d stay out of his and Ruby’s way.
They got together after they started sleepign with each other behind Fiz’s back.
