The former Westlife star and his partner's little girl arrived into the world via an emergency C-section Ruby Jean in May, and it was a dramatic arrival.

Danielle recalled to OK! Magazine: "We went home and at 8pm I started having weird pains, and by 10pm they were intense, so we went to the hospital.

"There was a queue for the theatre, so I was having to go through these contractions, which were horrific.

"I was in so much pain and desperate for any pain relief."

When she was seen at hospital, she was only a centimeter dilated and Danielle was in so much agony, but fortunately Ruby decided to let out a poo while still inside her mum, which meant she had to have a C-section immediately.

Danielle continued: "But then, it sounds disgusting, she pooed inside me and that means they’re in a bit of distress, so they took me straight to the emergency bit.

"I was kind of thankful she’d done that as the contractions were the worst pain I’ve ever experienced. We’d read loads about hypno-birthing and breathing through it, but gas and air didn’t touch the sides.

"I was in agony. I said, 'If we do this again I’m having an epidural and I will take all the pain relief!'"

Brian - who also has Molly, 19, and Lily-Sue, 18, with ex-wife Kerry Katona - predicted that his future wife would demand drugs even though she planned a natural birth.

He said: "I knew that was going to happen.

"When we were doing the pre-natal classes online, they were talking about the different pain relief and Dani said, 'I don’t like that, I’m going to do it as naturally as possible.'

"Then when we were in the waiting room at the hospital Dani was like, 'Just give me the drugs!'"

Both mum and dad were surprised by how quick Ruby was delivered and are thankful she's healthy after undergoing IVF treatment and two miscarriages.

Danielle added: "It was so surreal. I didn’t even cry, I think I was just so happy she was here and was healthy because you have so many worries going into it."
