Pregnant woman fights to prove her dead partner is baby's dad

A pregnant woman who lost her partner to an undiagnosed heart defect says she will fight to have his name added to their son's birth certificate.

Because they were not married, Charlotte Badon, from the Isle of Man, was told she must prove her late partner Adrian was the baby's father.

Miss Badon, 32, described the situation as "insulting" and an "absolute hell".

Without a court order, the Manx Registrar said it would not be possible to register the father's details.

Her baby is due on 11 January.
