The couple – who welcomed their first child in April – recently introduced their newborn son in Hello! magazine and revealed that the infant had difficulty breathing when he was born.
“It was the most terrifying experience, to have our tiny baby whisked away like that,” Peaches recalls. “I was yearning for that skin-to-skin contact I’d waited so long for and to not be able to hold him and nurse him and comfort him was so upsetting.’
After the 7 lb boy was delivered by C-section, he was rushed away by doctors just moments after Thomas cut the umbilical cord.
“He had a lack of something called surfactant, which made it a struggle for him to breathe. He was in intensive care for a few days,” Peaches says. “To be able to finally hold him and take in all his little features was wonderful.”
