Marnie Simpson has revealed she struggled to bond with her baby son Rox after a “horrific” birth which saw her lose two pints of blood.
The former Geordie Shore star, who welcomed baby Rox into the world last year with boyfriend Casey Johnson, said she’s yet to return to good health four months after giving birth.
Marnie, 28, also revealed that she contracted a rare bacterial infection while giving birth which “could have killed her”.

Marnie’s other-half Casey added that he found it tough too, but supported her throughout.
"It was really hard for me too and was obviously frustrating and annoying but even at the hardest times I knew it wasn’t Marnie’s fault,” he explained.
