Foster parents ????

A foster mother has had a baby with a refugee from Eastern Europe whom she took in when he was 14.

Julia Gregg, 34, and her husband, Steve Crandon, 38, gave a home to Kosovan Krenar Lleshi after he arrived in south Wales in the back of a lorry in 1999.

But the Ebbw Vale couple later divorced and Ms Gregg and Mr Lleshi, 21, fell in love. Ms Gregg said they plan to marry.

She said: "I know people have gossiped about us but we are very proud parents."

Mr Lleshi was smuggled in to Britain with fellow Kosovan Edmond Pone, when both were aged 14.

The pair were taken into local authority care and fostered by Ms Gregg, then 27, and Mr Crandon.
