A couple are living in fear after stalkers ‘threatened’ them by trying to get hold of information about the birth of their baby.
Samuel Carvalho, a social media personality after his incredible fundraising efforts, has spoken out alongside his girlfriend, who is just days away from giving birth.
Samuel and fiancé Ashleigh Bainbridge, 21, are expecting their first child – but online weirdos have sent worrying messages, reports the Cambridge News.
They claim an unidentified individual – or individuals – has been trying to ‘gain information’ about the arrangements for Asheligh’s birth by impersonating friends and family members over the last few weeks.
A spokesperson for Samuel said: “There may be one individual behind the threats, or numerous individuals.
"But we cannot say for sure given the numerous attempts made to gain information using different identities.
“We do believe that it is more likely just one individual who wishes to be present during Ashleigh’s labour, despite Samuel and Ashleigh not knowing who they are. The individual may have mental health problems and are unaware that what they are doing isn’t lawful, nor is it fair on Ashleigh.
The spokesperson said Samuel’s position in the ‘public eye’ for the last 10 years means he attracts the attention of thousands of people, some of whom become ‘overly obsessed’.
They added: “With just over a week until Ashleigh’s due date, it is disappointing that an individual or individuals wish to tarnish this incredibly special moment with their selfish actions.
“Ashleigh needs as little stress as possible right now but this incident isn’t helping with that. Ashleigh also doesn’t deserve to have to worry about some stranger accessing the suite whilst she is in labour.”
Addenbrooke’s and Rosie Hospital have reportedly been ‘superb’ in helping to provide alternative arrangements for the birth.
