Kerry Katona has discussed the terrifying moment she thought her daughter Dylan-Jorge was going to die.

The 39 year old welcomed six year old Dylan with late ex-husband George Kay in 2014 but nearly lost her just seconds after her birth.

Former Atomic Kitten singer Kerry has now candidly opened up on the moment, which lead a crash team to rescue the newborn.

Speaking about the experience on her YouTube channel, the mum-of-five said Dylan was "the best pregnancy I've ever had."

She continued: "During labour, she shot out. And then I held her, I was like 'something's not right' and then I gave her to George because I didn't want the responsibility — and she was mine, it's weird isn't it?

"And George went: 'She's not breathing!' Anyway, the woman pressed the button and a crash team came in.

"They took her to the side while I've got into shock and then they pressed it again. Then my placenta erupted inside."


Kerry went on to explain how doctors performed emergency CPR on Dylan as they tried to save her life.

She added: "They put me in this recovery room because they had to operate on me. And George had to decide which way he was going to go.

"In his head, he was like: 'I don't know this baby so I want to stay with my wife.' So he stayed with me — which I think messed his head up a little bit afterwards.

"He literally carried me in the operating room, kicked the door down and put me on the operating table."

Kerry finally explained: "And then they put me on recovery and I could hear all these babies crying.

"The doctor came in and he goes: 'Have you given her a name yet? You have to give her a name. I don't think she's going to make it through the night'."
