As a baby, Annie Price was caught in a fire when the caravan she was living in was devoured by flames. She was saved by her grandmother who got burns on her hands in order to rescue her granddaughter.

Social workers told little Annie that her mother set the fire on purpose and tried to kill her because Annie was a mixed-raced baby born from a man with whom she was having an affair. She decided to hide her sin that would have been shunned by the community and get rid of the baby.

However, a BBC documentary investigating what happened that terrifying night reveals that Annie’s mom might have nothing to do with the accident, and that the fire started because one of the cushions was set alight by a gas heater.

Now, Annie is 32 and she lives in Mitcham, London with her partner Sam. They recently welcomed a new addition to their family – baby boy Sonny.

When she was pregnant, Price voiced her worries that her child will be bullied because of her looks. She was also terrified that her kid will dislike her appearance because of other people's opinions. This made her consider getting more surgeries.

But now, she feels much more confident. She told in one of her interviews:

I will be a part of his life and I will be there at his school and me and Sam will be bringing him up in a way that I don't think it will be an issue.

Annie is working as a personal trainer and is sure that she can help her son to grow in a healthy environment.
