Made in Chelsea’s Louise Thompson has described her newborn baby son as a “miracle baby” after spending her first Christmas with him.

The star, 31, revealed earlier this week that she had suffered serious complications in giving birth to Leo-Hunter, causing her to nearly die twice.

The little baby boy was also rushed to intensive care after being born five weeks ago, but thankfully made a quick recovery.

The television personality shared a picture of her holding her new son in the kitchen of her home, kissing him on the cheek, while wearing a blue bow with Leo-Hunter’s initials.

She wrote: “LH, you are our little miracle baby. You are blessed with daddy’s beautiful blue eyes and I love you to pieces.

“Despite the daily struggles, you my proudest achievement.”

She added: “It is also a small miracle that I was able to roll out of bed to throw on a frock and a smudge of makeup, but it was your first Christmas and we had lots to be grateful for”.

Earlier this week, Thompson opened up about the difficulties she had faced in childbirth, saying she had been offered “some very valuable psychological help” after the traumatic ordeal.

New arrival Leo joins Louise, dad Ryan Libbey, and the couple’s two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Koji and Toto.

On Christmas Day, Thompson shared a heartfelt post in which she paid tribute to the NHS staff who "worked through the night to save my life".

She also posted a photo showing her in a wheelchair after being taken to the hospital’s sky garden after she regained the ability to move.

Thompson appeared in Made In Chelsea’s first series in 2011, progressing to become one of the E4 show’s main characters, while partner Ryan Libbey joined the cast in 2016 when the series was filming in the south of France.

The couple were engaged in 2018 after he proposed during a hiking trip in Los Angeles.
