“We’re completely besotted…” Melanie Murphy shares first glimpse of newborn son

Melanie Murphy has shared the first glimpse of her newborn son following his arrival last week.

The Youtube star gave birth to her little boy on Friday, and has been savouring each and every moment with the tiny tot since then.

Sharing a picture of her cradling the youngster, she said, “Eight days before my due date, on the 25th of September, my husband and I welcomed our first son into this world!

“A massive 9lb 3oz, brown hair and midnight blue eyes after 25 hours of natural labour which had to end in forceps delivery due to concerns over my exhaustion and over the baby’s position when they checked for his head, which then led to three bad tears and some other issues.

“I’ve had to be kept in hospital a few nights with only one visitor (and set visiting times) due to Covid. That’s been the hardest part.”

She continued, “I almost got him out by myself. So in awe of my body! I’m not going to lie though, labour is…an experience. The most intense powerful pain. I’d consider it good pain, as it’s ‘doing something’ that has to be done and not a sign that anything is wrong. But it’s all-consuming and definitely something to mentally prepare for.

“I did half the labour at home so I could have my husband there to help by pressing on my back/getting me drinks/playing calming music/pouring baths and reassuring me.

“Then we finished things off in Drogheda hospital, in and out of a birthing pool and in and out of every position known to man with the amazing midwives!

“The whole thing felt very primal/spiritual and we’re completely and utterly besotted with little one.”

Melanie and her husband Thomas don’t want to share many pictures of the baby online in a bid to protect his privacy, and any they do share, his face will be covered.

“I’m keeping his identity offline, but I’ll share as much about my journey of motherhood as is of interest, without putting him out there!”

We wish the family continued happiness!
