She gave birth to a son, Jordan, in 1995. His father, Tony Antoniou, missed the birth and broke up with Gabrielle the next day. Turned out, that was far from the worst thing he did: In December that year, Antoniou murdered his stepfather (who he said abused him) and cut off his head with a sword. Gabrielle was called to testify at the trial and broke down in tears, leading to unflattering press coverage that painted her as sympathetic to her ex, who was sentenced to life in prison.
Gabrielle and Antoniou were together for three years before Jordan was born; they operated a fish and chips restaurant in Sheffield for a while.
