Mum-of-two Myleene tweeted, “OMG. Did a BEYOND basic first aid course 5yrs ago and just had to use it. Feel like I need a medic myself. *faints*.”
Myleene used first aid on baby Hero, who celebrates her 1st birthday next week, after she began choking. Once the ordeal was over, Myleene made sure to tweet her thanks to Betty Gat, who had led the first aid course. “@BabeeSafe… Thank you so much. Hero was choking. Horrible, but did what you said. X,” Myleene tweeted.
It’s not the first time mummy Myleene, 33, has been a hero herself. In January 2010 the former popstar scared off two intruders with a kitchen knife after spotting them in the garden of her home in Potters Bar. She was alone in the kitchen at the time with daughter Ava, then 2, sleeping upstairs.
Speaking about the incident at the launch of ITV’s Popstar to Operastar, Myleene said, “It was a scary incident… I did what any other mother would do.”
