Holly Willoughby has opened up about the “adrenalin-fuelled postpartum euphoria” that she experienced after welcoming her son Harry and said she almost invited presenters Tess Daly and Vernon Kay into the delivery room moments after giving birth.

The ITV presenter (35) revealed that on the day she welcomed Harry, Vernon and Tess were taking a tour of the maternity unit in the hospital and she wanted to invite them in to meet him.

However, her husband suggested that minutes after birth might not be the best time.

“My husband quite rightly pointed out that it might not be the best time given the doctor was still stitching up my vagina,” Holly said in an interview with The Star’s Chic magazine.

Holly is currently promoting her new parenting book Truly Happy Baby, in which she delves into all aspects of motherhood.

The mum revealed that she has a particularly difficult time with her youngest son, and slept downstairs with him to acvoid disturbing the rest of her family.

“He just wasn’t able to be that baby who sleeps,” she said.

“It took me hours to feed and settle him back to sleep, then he’d be waking soon after to start the whole process again. Moving downstairs with him was the only option that worked with that baby.”
