Kerry Katona is all smiles on the cover of this week’s OK! magazine as she raises her daughter Dylan-Jorge Rose to the camera alongside fiancé George Kay.
But The Big Reunion star has revealed that the moments after Dylan-Jorge’s birth were so ‘traumatic’, she feared for the life of her baby girl.
Reliving the moment her daughter’s heart stopped, Kerry, 33, said: “I screamed as the doctors tried to revive her.
“I was losing loads and loads of blood – the placenta burst and had to be manually removed.
“In a split second, we went from tears of joy and holding our baby to chaos.”
And Kerry’s partner, first-time dad George, admitted he feared for the worst while his fiancée and daughter were being treated.
“In my lifetime, I’ve seen some horrific things,” he said, “but the thought of losing your two most loved people at the same time… I was a mess.”
Kerry is also mum to Molly, 12, and Lilly-Sue, 11, with her first husband Brian McFadden and Heidi, 7, and Max, five, with second husband Mark Croft.
Since Dylan-Jorge’s birth on April 4, the mum-of-5 hasn’t stopped tweeting about her new baby.
In one post, she said: “Me and Molly lay on the bed watching her beautiful baby sister sleep! What a great big sis she is, she changed her first nappy today xxx”
