Danielle Lloyd feared for baby’s life during labour

Model Danielle Lloyd has told of the horrifying moment she thought her new baby would not be able to breathe when he became stuck during labour.

The former Miss England and Celebrity Big Brother star welcomed her fourth child Ronnie on September 13 after a problematic birth that left her fearing for her son’s life.

The 33-year-old told OK! magazine: “Ronnie got stuck during labour for what felt like a lifetime – I was really scared.

“We were so worried he wouldn’t be able to breathe. Hearing him cry for the first time when he came out was the best feeling ever, and such a relief.”

She continued: “I was lucky that I got the water birth I’d always wanted, and I delivered him with just gas and air.”

The new arrival is Lloyd’s first with fiance Michael O’Neill, after a difficult pregnancy that caused her to suffer from borderline gestational diabetes, urinary infections and severe back pain.

Lloyd already has sons Archie, seven, Harry, six, and George, four, with ex-husband Jamie O’Hara.

She said the new addition to the family has made her want to have even more children and she has her hopes pinned on a baby girl this time.

“Having Ronnie has made me and Michael more of a unit, more complete as a family, and I think another baby, a little girl especially, would only cement that more,” she said.

But she also joked that another son would give her the chance to name him Reggie and have her own “two little Krays”.

According to Lloyd, Ronnie shares his name with her late grandfather and the moniker was picked out by her other sons.
