Amy Childs is reportedly set to reveal her ‘newborn son was hospitalised shortly after birth’ in upcoming TV show The Twin Life.
The former TOWIE star, 32, welcomed daughter Amelia Mae and son Billy River with her fiancé Billy Delbosq after a ‘long and exhausting labour’ last month.
In her new ITVBe show, set to air Tuesday May 23, she is set to give a behind-the-scenes look into her life as she becomes a mum to four children under five.
According to The Sun, baby Billy was hospitalised with fluid on his lungs shortly after his birth, with the traumatic events set to be shown in the series.
Amy previously told how she was booked into an emergency Caesarean section with doctors keeping a close eye on her, despite originally planning a natural birth.

She told The Sun: ‘I had an emergency C-Section – I had planned to go all natural. Bill films diary cams on the show so you’ll get to see it all on Twin Life.’
MailOnline has contacted Amy’s representative for comment.
Sharing an Instagram update ahead of The Twin Life, she said: ‘I am very excited to bring viewers in on this crazy journey with twins, as I become a mum to four under five!
‘Bill and I eagerly anticipate sharing every moment, from the bustling nesting phase, birth via emergency c-section, to the raw reality of the days following the twins’ arrival, and finally a very exciting proposal!
‘We are thrilled to have the cameras come along for the ride capturing all those special moments.’
Amy welcomed her twins via cesarean section earlier this month, but friends later admitted she was left shattered by the procedure.
A source told The Sun: ‘Amy’s welcomed boy and girl twin babies. She’s overjoyed, but exhausted after a long labour.
‘Amy and Billy are over the moon by their new arrivals.’
Birth the birth, Amy spoke openly about how doctors were monitoring her closely with weekly check-ups after her waters broke early during her past pregnancies with daughter Polly and also son Ritchie.
Writing for her OK! magazine column, the star explained the birth could be natural or caesarean, despite the latter being booked.

Describing her plan as ‘open’, Amy shared: ‘Like I’ve said from day one – if I can go natural then I will. My phrase of the year is ‘anything can happen’.’
‘While the twins aren’t coming imminently, doctors are concerned because my waters went with my previous pregnancies so it could happen at any time,’ she continued.
Caesarean section is the surgical procedure by which the babies will be delivered through an incision in Amy’s abdomen, rather than a vaginal delivery. The procedure is often performed if a natural birth would put the mother at risk.
Adding that things are looking good from previous scans, Amy shared that she can be left up to 38 weeks in the term before giving birth, as the twins are not identical.
