Kai Jenkins Danniella Westbrook
Kai’s mother Danniella exposed him to the Class A substance while giving birth to him.
Her mother notoriously hoovered-up a line during her first-born’s labour in 1996, which co-incided with the height of her problem.
Despite this, Kai says he forgives her chronic substance misuse and, as a result, vows never to touch drugs.
Speaking exclusively to the Daily Star, Kai added that he fears for his mother’s life and has even lost friends to overdoses.
It’s upsetting to hear that happened. It’s shocking,” he says of the fact his mother used cocaine during his birth.
“I’m incredibly lucky – it hasn’t affected me. It’s a miracle. But it’s part of life. You can’t go back and change it. I like to forgive. Everyone deserves another chance.”
His generous attitude was surely welcomed by his mother Danniella who has relapsed several times over the past 20 years.
His mother once overdosed and nearly died when Kai was just 4-years-old – only to be saved when he found her. However, because he’s witnessed her on-going battle, he insists that he’ll never touch drugs in case he ends up like his mother ex-EastEnders star.
“I am anti-drugs. I don’t touch them. I don’t take sleeping tablets or even paracetamol. I don’t even drink alcohol. I have had a few friends die because of drugs. It is common.”
