The new mum also explained that she was forced to welcome their newborn earlier than planned after developing complications, and admitted Ben hasn’t even held their child since the emergency labour.

“Ben hasn’t even seen her since the ER c-section,” explaining it’s due to current coronavirus restrictions.

She then revealed she had developed “cholestatis”, and said she had to be induced at 37 weeks.

Jackie then explained Farrah is now in NICU, and she’s been getting to see her every three hours.
