Rochelle Humes has been struck by the norovirus bug, so her in-laws are looking after baby Alaia-Mai to try to make sure the six-month-old doesn’t catch the vomiting bug, too.
“Can babies catch Norovirus?”, Tweeted The Saturdays singer, who is married to JLS’ Marvin Humes. “This isn’t nice. I’ve never felt so bad!”
Later, she revealed that her daughter hasn’t caught it yet and is being looked after by her grandparents – and that she misses her a lot. “[Alaia-Mai’s] not showing any signs, she seems fine,” she said. “It’s just hard not to have contact with her … I’m gonna try and sleep it off! Mumma and Dadda Humes have saved the day.”
Marvin also Tweeted: “My poorly baby… thanks Mum and Dad x”
The symptoms of norovirus, also known as the winter vomiting bug (although you can catch it at any time of year), include vomiting, fever, headaches and stomach cramps – and it’s very contagious. If you know someone who has it, it’s best to avoid them for a few days.
