Jennifer Metcalfe Talks Traumatic Birth Of Her And Geordie Shore Star Greg Lake's Son
A serious complication arose while she was in labour.
The Hollyoaks actress went into labour back in June, and the couple are now proud parents to happy and totally healthy bundle of joy, Daye Lake.
Let's all get checking out what the parents of the Geordie Shore cast look like IRL...
But the birth itself almost took a turn for the worse when doctor's noticed that an issue with Jennifer's cord was impacting her unborn baby's heartbeat.
"It was such a good experience. Dale’s heartbeat dripped before I had to push him out and the cord was in a knot, but the midwives made me feel like superwoman.
Revealing that the condition can be potentially deadly, she said: "They said it happens to 1 in 100 babies and it doesn't end very nice, it can end in still birth.
Jennifer continued: "It was quite a tight knot too, which stops the oxygen and food getting to him. But our little man defied the odds and here he is."
This comes as Jen revealed that she and Greg don't have any plans to head the aisle anytime soon - saying they're far too preoccupied with baby Daye to think about marriage.
When asked if she has a blueprint for a glitzy wedding in mind, Jen responded: "There's not! Just doing parenthood, and trying to give that a go."
We're just glad to hear Jen made it through this complication without it ruining her first experience of childbirth.
