Pippa O’Connor has admitted she had to undergo emergency surgery while pregnant last year.
Reflecting on the past twelve months, the best-selling author revealed that she had to get a cyst removed when she was ten weeks pregnant with her second child.
Pippa found the whole situation incredibly daunting, and taking to her website, Pippa.ie, said, “I actually had an emergency operation when I was only 10 weeks pregnant with Louis.
“I never mentioned it at the time as it was obviously very scary, plus nobody knew I was pregnant.
“I basically had a cyst that had to be removed immediately – it was huge, bigger than my fist.
“I had to have a general anaesthetic and get keyhole surgery, not nice at the best of times but when you’re pregnant as well, I was extremely anxious.”
Following the worry of her surgery, Pippa said she’s “unbelievably lucky to now have two healthy boys.”
Meanwhile, the proud mum, has shown what a fantastic big brother 3-year-old Ollie is to 6-month-old Louis, with her recent Instagram snap.
