Kate Lawler kept in hospital after newborn baby daughter loses weight

KATE Lawler has been kept in hospital after her newborn baby daughter lost weight.

It comes after the tot was rushed to intensive care shortly after her birth 11 days early.

Kate, 40, explained in her most recent Instagram post that both mum and baby were due to be discharged from hospital on Sunday, but have been kept in longer for observation.

She told fans: "Hello, we are still in hospital. Nucky lost too much weight for us to leave this morning as planned. So it's been pushed back. Maybe to later, possibly tomorrow.

"For now she's napping and I'm using a breast feeding pillow as a neck pillow. Winner."

Despite the setback, Kate revealed her joy as her daughter was taken off oxygen and had her feeding tubes removed after being rushed to ICU after birth.

She is now able to be with her parents including Kate's fiancé Martin.

Kate posted a sweet video of their baby with Martin, who she affectionately calls Boj, kissing their little girl on the head.

The Virgin radio DJ captioned the post: "I'm so in love.

"She came off oxygen, antibiotics, and feeding tubes today and at 2pm came out of the special care unit and into my room with us for the first time."

The excited new mum added: "The last nine hours with these two have been amazing."

Kate went on to share a snap of her daughter from behind to show off the impressive head of hair she was born with.

Kate gave birth on Thursday after going into labour 11 days before her due date.

On Friday she shared the first photos of her little one as she opened up about the "complicated" delivery, explaining that the baby had been rushed to ICU with breathing difficulties.

Kate was optimistic as she told fans that many of the issues were considered "normal" in babies.

She added: "She’s a healthy weight, everything else is perfect, there’s a murmur on her heart which they’re monitoring but again is very common in newborn babies and they’re going to see if she can breath unassisted again this evening."

The new mum rounded off the post: "The last two days have been incredibly overwhelming, tiring and not what we expected but she’s here and in the best possible care. The outpouring of love from family and friends we’ve received has been staggering."

Kate has not yet revealed what her daughter's name is.
