Lateysha Grace has announced that she has given birth to a baby girl.
The 29-year-old former Big Brother star had been hospitalized with a serious illness before the arrival of her daughter aged 34 weeks.
The new mum shared a picture of her “angel baby” from the hospital bed as she told her followers the newborn was “thriving” despite arriving a few weeks early.
Under the picture, Lateysha wrote: “Welcome to the world @babylayke 04/03/2022 3.14 pounds. My little angel, baby 34 weeks.”
Lateysha was hospitalized with a serious illness last week.
She said after giving birth: “What a crazy two weeks I’ve had but she’s here and fine.”
The reality star – best known for her appearances on The Valleys, Million Dollar Baby and Celebrity Ex on the Beach – previously asked her followers to “pray” for her unborn child after she was diagnosed with preeclampsia.
The condition, which affects about six percent of pregnancies, had struck Lateysha a few weeks before giving birth.
Last week she said: “What should have been the most exciting week for me has turned out to be the worst!
“Honestly, if anyone feels they have pre-eclampsia please get it checked out ASAP, it’s so dangerous for you and your baby. I don’t know how long I will be here but please just pray for my baby.”
She said symptoms of pre-eclampsia emerged and she consulted a doctor, resulting in her being hospitalized.
Thanking her fans, Lateysha said she regrets not acknowledging the symptoms beforehand.
She said: “I wish I had been taken more seriously when I walked in with swollen feet two weeks ago. I don’t think it would be as bad as it is right now.
“And to make matters worse, I have Covid. I just have to be as strong as possible for my baby.”
