Worried Kieran Hayler by Katie Price's side after gruelling op

TAGS:

As Katie Price announces the happy news 
that she welcomed her new daughter last week, Now can reveal the drama that was really going on behind the scenes.

The star had been battling illness 
for a week before the baby was delivered six weeks prematurely.

It was Katie’s worst nightmare and a scenario she’d hoped to avoid following the difficult birth of Jett almost exactly a year ago, which left both mother and 
baby in hospital on the French Riviera for weeks.

Now, tired 
and exhausted after what must 
have been the most stressful 18 months of her life, following two difficult births and revelations that her husband Kieran Hayler, 27, had cheated on her with two 
of her friends, Katie, 36, is trying to get some rest and recover 
while getting to know her brand new baby daughter.

Shock delivery

As Katie revealed in her column last issue, she’d 
been feeling ill the week before her baby girl arrived and had even pulled out of her weekly FUBAR Radio show on Tuesday 29 July. At the time, she told Now she’d been lying in bed resting and watching loads of television.

But as she started 
to feel even more unwell and following a hospital visit that weekend, it was decided she should have the baby earlier than planned – at 34 weeks.

Katie had been due 
to have a pre-booked Caesarean on 15 August but her condition meant she would’ve been rushed in for an earlier delivery. 
As Now went to press, both Katie and her baby 
girl were still 
in hospital.

Baby bonding fears

A friend told Now: ‘Because her baby was born prematurely, she wasn’t able to give her a proper cuddle after the birth, despite the fact she was able to hold her later on.’
