Pregnant Paloma Faith rushed to hospital after suffering cramps as she 'prays baby doesn't come early'

PREGNANT singer Paloma Faith is worried her baby might arrive early after being rushed to hospital with lower abdominal cramps.

The 39-year-old, who announced she's expecting her second child after six rounds of IVF last year, revealed she was rushed the Maternal Fetal Assessment Unit (MFAU).

Alongside a close-up image of her gorgeous baby bump, Paloma revealed to fans that she had been rushed to hospital.

"We were in the MFAU last night cause I've had some lower abdominal cramps… b***dy praying this one doesn't come early like the last!" she wrote on Instagram.

She also showed her swollen feet and how much water she was retaining.

"Look at this water retention!!! I just pressed my ankle and this remained imprinted for a good 3 mins," Paloma wrote on a picture of the imprint in her skin.

Her dash to hospital comes after Paloma recently confessed her fears of catching Covid after going outside and being approached by fans.

The singer explained that she went for a walk with her four-year-old daughter – who she shares with Leyman Lahcine, 33 – when other people stepped too close for comfort.

She explained that following the incident her "anxiety was through the roof" and had left her no choice but to "vow" to stay inside.

"Some people I knew approached me in the park yesterday as I was taking my little one for a walk for some exercise," Paloma wrote.

"I felt like I was going to break down into tears begging them not to come near as I scrambled to put both our masks on."

Despite the "kind and empathetic" response from those around her, Paloma added: "I vowed that would be the last time I step outside my house until the baby is born."

The Only Love Can Hurt Like This star continued that she was feeling nervous about giving birth during the pandemic.

Stressing the importance of being careful to protect her children, especially the "baby in her tummy" that was conceived by IVF.

"I couldn't help thinking about all the effort that goes into trying to conceive a child through IVF," Paloma began.

"Together with all the worry in vitro that it's safe and doing well, then with the pandemic on top… I feel responsible not just for the baby in my tummy, but my 4-year-old too.

"Like if something was to happen to me, how would she ever recover?

"I have so much worry and so much responsibility on my shoulders, I was at breaking point yesterday."

Paloma previously opened up about the "struggle" of trying to conceive her second baby using IVF.

In another emotional Instagram post, Paloma wrote: "This child is so wanted, it's my 6th round of IVF and was a struggle to get here."
