The snooker champion has made it clear he wanted to meet his granddaughter. But Taylor-Ann refused to let it happen. Sally Magnus’s daughter told the paper-“When I read that Dad had said he wanted to see Zarah I thought there was a chance we could be a normal family and he could be a grandad to her.

She went on- “I had always hoped for a better, closer, more loving relationship with my dad and think I’ve been waiting for him my whole life, when I announced I was pregnant there was a little flurry of interest from Ronnie. His friend called me a couple of times and said Ronnie was really excited about being a grandad.”

I should have known better than to get my hopes up. He told a few reporters how sad he was that we aren’t closer, and mentioned how much he’d love to see my daughter but that was pretty much it. It was just a show. He never contacted me personally once. It broke my heart.”- Taylor-Ann Magnus told The Sun.

In an interview with The Mirror, Taylor-Ann once again confirmed she had no intention for her father, O’Sullivan to meet his granddaughter. Taylor-Ann told the paper: “He’s not part of my life. I wouldn’t want someone like that around me and my child.
