She may be struggling as a single mother but Alicia Douvall is determined to prove who the father of her baby is.

The 32-year-old – who gave birth to her second daughter Papaya Coco almost six months ago – has insisted that her ex-boyfriend Simon Jordan is her father despite him denying it.

'I've got DNA proof that Simon is her father, yet he won't financially support Papaya. I've offered him 50/50 access but he's not interested,' Alicia told the Mail Online.

The pair care currently embroiled in a bitter court case, which Alicia says she will win because she 'always' wins, and also said that the newest addition to the family is 'a diva – just like her dad.'

'At the moment he's promoting his book and boosting his ego, but he doesn't deserve any success,' she said of the former Crystal Palace owner.

The former glamour model went on to say that she is 'coping really well' with motherhood the second time round, despite the big age gap between Papaya and Alicia's 16-year-old daughter Georgia.

'It's not easy being a single parent,' she added. 'I've spent all my money on cosmetic surgery so I'm struggling financially too.

'But Papaya's birth has brought me and Georgia closer together, and I've found that I don't rely on her so much.

'She's great with Papaya and said the other day that if anything ever happens to me, she will take care of her so she's her godmother as well as her older sister.'

Viewers will catch a glimpse of what Alicia's life is like when her latest documentary Glamour Model Mum, Baby and Me airs tomorrow night on BBC Three.

'I wanted people to see the real me and for the very first time, this is the real me,' Alicia said of her latest programme.

'They followed us and and filmed us for nine months and it's the first time you see the real me and Georgia and how our relationship has changed. You forget that the cameras are there. I think reality TV like this is so much better than the scripted shows.'

The show will follow Alicia during her pregnancy and reveal what pushed her to have more cosmetic surgery just seven weeks after giving birth.

'A month before I fell pregnant I had a nose implant and cheek implants,' Alicia explained.

'After having it done I kept thinking it was the swelling, so I kept emailing the surgeon and he kept saying it would be fine but my smile never came back and then I realised that something was wrong.'

The blonde was willing to have surgery awake but hypnotised while pregnant but surgeons refused, so as soon as Papaya was born she made preparations to correct her face.

However, this came at a cost as while she was having her latest bout of surgery, her daughter Georgia looked after Papaya and therefore missed her mock A Level exam.

'Georgia didn't get the grades that she was hoping to get and as a result she gave up doing photography A Level at college because she felt like she couldn't catch up,' Alicia said.

'I feel bad about that because I never went to college so I didn't realise how important it was but I don't regret having the surgery because it's made me happier. And if you're a happy person, then your kids will be too.'

Alicia – who had her first breast enlargement at the age of 17 – added that she would rather 'be dead than living with the botched surgery.'

'The last surgery I had is a hidden blessing – I look in the mirror now and I feel happy. I really feel like this time I'm definitely not having any more.'

Luckily Georgia has also changed her mind about wanting a breast enlargement, which she expressed interest in at the age of just 12-years-old.

'Georgia has completely changed her perception on cosmetic surgery. She's really confident about her body – after all that she's seen, she will never get plastic surgery,' Alicia explained.

Alicia also said that her teenage daughter gets 'very embarrassed' about her kiss-and-tell stories, particularly her latest revelations about Simon Cowell.

The blonde claims to have bedded Simon 11 times in one night after going on a few dates with the music mogul, and was the first woman to come forward and tell all about being with him.

'Simon Cowell is very clever and keeps all of his past girlfriends as friends, Alicia said. 'But I can't be bought, and I never could be bought. He has offered me a lot in the past.

'Doing kiss and tells has never been about the money for me though, it's about revenge. So when I did it I was about getting back at him and also at Simon Jordan.'

The mother-of-two went on to say that it was 'typical' of Simon not to have her included in Tom Bower's book, Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell, because he 'thinks he is better' than her.

'We had a relationship after going on a few dates and then it turned into something unhealthy,' she added. 'It was an unhealthy situation and when I met Simon Jordan I turned my attention elsewhere.'

Alicia has recently decided to get back into modelling and has just signed a new contract, and will also be filming another documentary in the near future.

Glamour Model Mum, Baby & Me can be seen on Tuesday June 12 on BBC3 at 9pm.
