Pregnant Amy Childs reveals late night hospital scare after suffering stomach cramps… as she prepares to welcome her twins in a matter of weeks
Pregnant Amy Childs has opened up about her late night health scare as she was forced to call medics in the early hours of the morning.
The Only Way Is Essex star, 32, is preparing to welcome twins with her boyfriend Billy Delbosq and is closely approaching her due date.
And on Saturday, she revealed she had a hospital scare earlier in the week and was worried that she was going into early labour.
Writing for OK! Magazine, she explained that she had to call the hospital at 3.30am after suffering from severe stomach cramps.
She said: ‘A couple of nights ago, I couldn’t sleep at all. I got up around 1am, and my tummy was really cramping.’

Due date: The Towie star, 32, is preparing to welcome twins and is closely approaching her due date and the star admitted she thought she was going into early labour
‘I’ve had it before, it’s not like it’s my first baby, but I said to Bill that something felt different,’ she added.
She said that she called the hospital because she didn’t want to travel there in the early hours just to be told it was Braxton-Hicks, which are contractions that happen as the body prepares for labour.
Amy admitted that she didn’t have to go into the hospital but would have if the babies weren’t moving, saying she was worried the pain was a sign of early labour.
She said: ‘When I was getting the twinges, I thought, “Oh my god, are they coming now?”.
‘I was asking people on Instagram when they went into labour with twins, and a lot of people said around 35/36 weeks, and I’m 35 weeks on Monday.’
The interview comes after Amy revealed to OK! that she was expecting twins with her boyfriend Billy and said it was a shock to both of them.
The reality TV star said she didn’t expect to conceive so quickly and discovered she was pregnant just two months after coming off her contraception last year.
The couple then had an even bigger shock in store for them as they found out later that they were expecting twins.
Amy also recently revealed that she and her beau have landed their very own ITVBe show, titled Amy Childs: The Twin Life.
