Louise Thompson has shared a sweet message for her fiance Ryan Libbey after the difficult birth of their son, Leo-Hunter.

Sharing a string of photos of Ryan and their newborn son, the Made In Chelsea star thanked her partner for everything he’s done, describing 2021 as the ‘hardest year of her life.’

She wrote: ‘2021 has been the hardest year of my life by miles. And I really mean that. MILES.

‘But there is someone in my life who will have found it equally as hard. This guy ☝🏼

‘He has had to witness things that no partner should ever have to. He has called ambulances. He has been inside (and outside) operating theatres for hours.

‘He has had to bring up our son as a single parent for the first month+ of his life.

‘He has slept on the hard floor of the hospital for a week. (I didn’t realise that he would sneak off to the chapel in the middle of the night to pray)… and that’s before things even got bad.

‘Then he had to come home and organise the entire house whilst looking after a newborn because it was still pretty much a building site.’

The 31-year-old continued: ‘He has coordinated my whole family so that they could come and visit me and minimise the stress.

‘He has had to look after me and the baby for the first few weeks of me arriving home because I haven’t been able to look after myself.’

Louise went on to list some of the things Ryan has done including showering her, washing her hair, and bringing baby Leo to the hospital every day to see her when she was an inpatient.

‘And he’s still doing the LION’S share of the work between the two of us,’ she added. ‘Ryan I commend you. I don’t know many men who would be able to handle this situation with such grace and fortitude.

‘You are my rock 🪨 and I’m so sorry for what you’ve been through. 2022 better be our year!! I will do my best to be strong for u two ❤️.’

Louise and Ryan, who rose to fame on Made In Chelsea, announced the birth of their son on December 23 but revealed he had been born five weeks earlier.

He spent time in NICU while Louise spent a month in hospital recovering ‘with various serious complications.’

The couple also had a difficult time during the pregnancy as well as the birth, as their home was damaged in a fire in October after a faulty fridge exploded.

Thankfully, Louise, her mother, Ryan and the family’s dogs were all able to escape unharmed but were left moving from place to place and living out of their car as the home was uninhabitable.
