Amanda Holden is in critical condition after giving birth to her daughter, Hollie Rose Hughes, due to high blood loss on Monday.
Holden is expected to make a full recovery, according to her spokeswomen, Alison Griffin, and a friend also confirmed that while her condition is critical, she will recover.
“Amanda nearly died. It was a life threatening situation. There was a huge loss of blood,” the friend told the Daily Mail.
Griffin also stated that the baby is just fine saying, “She is healthy and weighed in at 6.1lb but Amanda has been in a critical condition for the past three days. She is now stable and we expect her to make a full recovery very soon. We thank you for respecting their privacy at this time.”
Holden is a little more well known in the UK, she is a judge on “Britain’s Got Talent”, a version of “America’s Got Talent”, in England. Holden had to miss auditions for the show this week due to the birth.
Holden married record producer Chris Hughes in 2008 and this is the couples second child, the first being a daughter also.
The couple lost a son last year after a still born birth after 7 months of pregnancy. Complications arose from the recent birth due to a low lying placenta and a c-section procedure had to be performed.
