EASTENDAD STEVE TO THE RESCUE; HARDMAN ACTOR CAN'T STAY AWAY AS HIS SECRET DAUGHTER IS BORN He Races 100 Miles to Ex and Lovechild


Byline: DEBBIE MANLEY

EASTENDERS star Steve McFadden dashed 100 miles to his ex-lover's hospital bedside yesterday to be with his new-born daughter.

Caring Steve, 44, who plays hardman Phil Mitchell, tenderly collected Angie Bostock, 27, and their baby girl and drove them home.

The EastEnders star had raced from his pounds 1.5million house in north London to the maternity hospital in Salisbury, Wilts, along with their first daughter Teona, six, after Angie gave birth two weeks late.

Angie told a pal: "After all this time and all the problems there have been between us Steve turned up at the hospital to comfort me.

"He rushed down with our daughter Teona and my emotions just took over.

"Teona was so looking forward to seeing her baby sister and she kissed her as soon as she saw her.

"The two of them really did make a difference and it crowned one of the happiest days of my life.

"Over the last few weeks Steve has been looking after Teona and the pair have become even closer than they already are.

"I have missed her but she has called me all the time saying she's looking forward to the baby.

"It has been very reassuring that Steve has been a great dad to her over the last few weeks and that we are getting on."

Steve has never confirmed that the baby is his but a pal told The People: "He is being sensitive and supportive.

"Nobody has yet confirmed categorically that the child is his but, whatever, theunderstanding is that he willalways be there for Angie - she's the mother of Teona."

The birth had all the drama of an EastEnders plot - Angie was rushed into surgery after doctors discovered her unborn baby had a low heart beat.

Angie told a pal last night: "I was being pushed down the corridor into the operating theatre and I was screaming because I was in so much pain.

"I was asking for pain killers because the contractions became so intense.

"But as soon as I got there everything seem to happen within seconds. Just moments later I had a very healthy baby girl with no complications. She weighed 8lbs and so is a very healthy size.

"She is similar in weight to my other daughter Teona who weighed just over 8lbs.
