She said: ‘It was awful, it was just tragic. And I just looked at Bill thinking, ”What is going on? Is the baby alright?”
‘Then the midwife was running me to theatre with her hand still inside me so that the cord doesn’t come out, cause the minute that comes out, the baby would’ve died.’
Doting mother Amy, revealed that she had named her daughter Amelia Mae, affectionately called Millie, and her son Billy River.
She posted the heartwarming update alongside a video montage depicting the newborns’ first few days on earth.
Amy previously wrote that she feels like she’s “back at square one” as she worries about the health of her infants, despite having previously experienced pregnancy and childbirth twice.
In her column for OK!, the reality star described a recent incident in which she was unable to fall asleep and her stomach began ‘cramping’ in the middle of the night.
‘I’ve had it before, it’s not like it’s my first baby, but I said to Bill that something felt different,’ she said.
Amy is already the mother of Polly, 5, and Ritchie, 4, from previous relationships.The reality star announced her pregnancy at the end of October, and she recently confessed she anticipated ridicule for her decision not to breastfeed her twins.
After her challenges with her daughter Polly, she came to the conclusion that it ‘wasn’t for her’.
The Twin Life premieres tonight at 9pm on ITVBe.
