Myleene Klass has opened up on her difficult labour after welcoming her baby son Apollo.
The mum-of-three, who welcomed her youngest child earlier this month, has spoken about the complicated birth of her third child.
‘My waters broke and I was in the birthing pool,’ she told HELLO! Magazine. ‘We had a really easy first three hours, to the point that I thought we would all be home by 7pm. But I don’t remember what happened next.
‘I lost five hours of my life,’ she continued, ‘and it was a pretty complicated birth in the end.
However, she added: ‘Suddenly Apollo was here and you forget everything. My body felt pretty invincible.’
The singer went on to explain how she and partner Simon Motson picked the two-week-old’s unique name.
‘Apollo is the god of music and science – my two passions,’ she said. ‘We thought it was such a strong name and at 8lbs 5oz, he was a strong, bouncing boy.
Apollo is the third child for Myleene, who is already mum to 12-year-old Ava and eight-year-old Hero from her previous relationship with ex-husband Graham Quinn.
Opening up on having a baby at a different stage in her life, the 41-year-old, said: ‘Having a baby in your forties is an extremely different experience.
‘I love the night feeds,’ she continued, ‘it’s a privilege to look at his little face during the night. I know how quickly this will go. I’m loving every single minute. I even miss my baby bump – I put on over five stone. I want to savour every single second.’
