Earlier this year, Sharon admitted she feared her baby was going to die when she woke up in blood six months into her pregnancy.

The 48-year-old screenwriter told The Sun Online: "When I saw the blood it put the fear of god into me.

"My blood pressure was massively high and I thought I was going to have to give birth months earlier than expected."

Sharon feared she would never be a mother after having seven IVF attempts and two miscarriages, and she didn't buy any baby clothes before the birth because didn't want to "jinx" things.

She said: "Before she was born I was convinced something was going to go wrong.

"Until Betsey was actually put in my arms and I heard her let out the most almighty yell, I always felt like someone was going to say it's all going to be taken away from me.

"I'd never allowed myself to go and buy something for the baby before I'd given birth. I wouldn't even let myself look at the baby clothes in a shop. I was terrified to jinx it."
