Myleene Klass has shared an intimate look at the birth of her son Apollo, now three.
The former Hear'Say singer, 44, shared a video to Instagram of the moment she – looking elated – held her baby boy in her arms for the first time as her partner, Simon Motson, placed a tender kiss on her forehead.
Myleene shares daughters Ava, 15 and Hero, 10, with her ex-husband Graham Quinn, and son Apollo, two, with fiancé and PR boss, Simon Motson, 47.
She is also step-mother to Simon’s two children from a previous relationship.
In her post, Myleene talks candidly about suffering four miscarriages in four consecutive years before experiencing the joy of welcoming her son Apollo.
She wrote: "These few seconds reveal the utter trauma, pain, fear and relief after never daring to believe this moment would actually come, that I would finally hold my son in my arms and bring him home.
"You see the seemingly perfect side of my life a lot on socials but like everything, there is another side and for me, losing a baby near enough every year for four consecutive years turned me into someone I didn’t recognise.
"When I finally fell pregnant with Apollo, I had gotten to a point where I didn’t believe in my body anymore, seeing a pram in the park, an advert on the train, another gender reveal online, it was mentally debilitating."
The radio host has previously opened up on being part of a blended family of seven, candidly revealing that it was "frustrating, annoying, expensive and loud”, but that there were many rewards too.
In a post, she said: ”I constantly question myself, am I doing right by my own kids splitting the little time I have with two more children? Five in total, more washing, more homework, buying more uniforms, more cinema seats, more food.
"You have to explain your own house rules, the dynamics and vibe change greatly for everyone as children come and go."
Myleene has also been open about her breastfeeding journey with Apollo, and was praised for sharing a photo of herself breastfeeding her son back in 2020.
The star recently shared some snaps from her sun-soaked Christmas getaway with her family in The Maldives.
Myleene made sure to showcase her impressive figure in many bikini snaps, including one in a red swimsuit and a Santa hat as she lowered herself down on a ladder into the crystal clear waters.
The former Hear'Say singer captioned the Christmas Day post: “Sea-son’s Greetings! #MerryChristmas #maldives.”
Corrie actress Helen Flanagan replied with a string of fire emojis, as Denise Van Outen echoed similar sentiments.
“10 out of 10,” said other follower, before another penned: “Merry Christmas Myleene and beautiful family. My word you look stunning."
