Michelle Heaton’s 5-week-old son Aaron Jay has been rushed to hospital with suspected meningitis.
The Liberty X singer tweeted the news about her baby son on Sunday morning.
The 34-year-old revealed Aaron has been diagnosed with viral meningitis.
“The last 24 hours has been the worst and scariest in my life,” tweeted Michelle. “With everything I’ve been through mentally and physically.
“Nothing compares to that of when your baby is sick. Our beautiful baby boy is being looked after in hospital after being diagnosed with viral meningitis. And reflux disease just to top it off.”
Michelle says Aaron, who’s still in hospital, is being treated with antibiotics.
“He’s fighting strong & taking the antibiotics well so far,” tweeted Michelle. “But, at only 5 weeks old, one can only imagine our @hughhanley distress as parents.
“He’s very sick and in pain with the reflux. The hospital are amazing and he’s well looked after.
“Hopefully we will be able to take our little man home soon. I’m sure we will.”
Get well soon, Aaron!
