Pregnant Lisa McHugh opens up about her ‘scary’ battle with Covid-19

Lisa McHugh has opened up about her “scary” battle with Covid-19.

The country music singer, who is expecting her first child with her fiancé Nathan Khan, recently tested positive for the virus.

Speaking on her Instagram Story, the mum-to-be said: “Ten days ago today I tested positive for Covid-19. I am still nowhere near 100 per cent. It’s been a rough and scary ten days to be honest.”

Explaining how bad her symptoms were, Lisa admitted she spent the night in A&E after noticing her struggle to breathe.

“Last Friday evening I noticed my breathing became very laboured and I was struggling to do anything – even sitting down, I was just breathless,” she said.

“My midwife and GP referred me to A&E to get checked. So I spent last Friday evening in A&E, but thankfully they checked everything.”

“Oxygen levels were good, and the baby was perfectly fine, thankfully. That was a scary night and couple of days, to be honest…”


The 33-year-old confessed she was “totally floored” by the virus, and said: “I hate to think what would have happened me if I wasn’t doubly vaccinated.”

Concluding her posts, the singer added: “I’m so grateful the baby is fine. I’m on the mend, it’s just going to take some time.”

Lisa announced her pregnancy on her 33rd birthday in August, alongside a photo of her cradling her baby bump on the beach.

She captioned the post: “The most special birthday to date… 🤍 Thank you so much for all the love today WE had an amazing day 👶🏻🥰.”

“Out of every dream and aspiration I hoped to achieve in life, becoming a mum has always been number 1 on the list.”

“I cannot tell you how excited and incredibly blessed we feel to be starting our little family 🤍 We cannot wait to meet you Baby K 😍👶🏻🤍,” she added.

Lisa and her fiancé Nathan got engaged last July.

At the time, the country music star wrote on Instagram: “Officially the happiest and luckiest girl in the world ❤️💍.”
