Amy Childs has opened up on the terrifying moment one of her twin babies 'nearly died' during their 'traumatic birth'.

The reality star mum-of-four to five-year-old daughter Polly and four-year-old son Ritchie gave birth to her twin babies last month with partner Billy Delbosq, following an exhausting labour.

And it's about to get even harder for the mum with four kids under the age of five as like any mum with newborn children, she tries to get her babies to sleep .

But in the first-look clip taken from her new reality show Amy Childs: The Twin Life, the star struggled to hold back her tears as she recalled the traumatic birth.

"It was awful, it was just tragic. And I just looked at Bill thinking, ''What is going on? Is the baby alright?''

She continued, "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."

In a new trailer for the show, Amy reveals she was forced to have an emergency Caesarean Section despite planning a natural birth for her babies, who are called Billy River Delbosq and Amelia Mae Delbosq.

And fans are expected to see the events play out in the series. Amy shared, "Amy Childs is back on our screens in Amy Childs: The Twin Life! Experience the highs and lows as Amy and Bill embrace the challenges of twin life, from preparing for their arrival to navigating the realities of parenting two babies. Will Amy and Bill step up to the double responsibility? Witness the ultimate test of their relationship as the impending arrival brings them closer or introduces new challenges!"

And fans have already been sharing their support for the star. One fan wrote, "I’m so glad you are all ok," while another put, "Bless your heart darling I have 8 grandchildren and my oldest son and wife had twin boys back in 2015. 

"Very hard work but with a strong relationship you will manage. And Bill don’t go out with your mates. This is mega difficult."

A third sweet supporter added, "Just watched it on ITVX, I felt so sorry for Amy when Billy was out and she’s at home waiting."

You can watch the official trailer below...

Amy Childs: The Twin Life airs on ITVBe tonight at 9pm (Tuesday, May 23rd) or stream now on ITVX.
