‘I was just a vessel – my baby birthed herself’, says Ferne McCann

Former TOWIE star Ferne McCann and her new baby girl Finty appeared as guests on This Morning where Ferne opened up on her experience giving birth and said she didn't push her baby out, but that Finty "birthed herself".

The reality star explained on Tuesday morning's episode, 19 September, how she is excited for the birth of Finty to air on her TV show First Time Mum, as she hasn’t been allowed to properly speak about it yet. However, Ferne gave fans a small glimpse of what they will be able to see on the TV show, as she said she didn't push her daughter out, but instead "breathed" her out.

Ferne sat on the sofa with her adorable daughter on her lap as she said: "I am so excited for the birth [to air] because I haven't been allowed to speak about it yet."

To Holly Willoughby and Craig Doyle's surprise, Ferne admitted: "I didn't push, I just breathed her out. I didn't do any work. I was the vessel and Finty birthed herself. I got my home birth, it took a turn and I literally just breathed her out. I surrendered."

Ferne then revealed that she would have another baby "tomorrow if the birth was like that again".

Ferne welcomed her daughter Finty on 6 July with her businessman fiance, Lorri Haines – known as Lozza. The former The Only Way Is Essex star was already mum to five year old Sunday, who she shares with her ex Arthur Collins.

The ITV's First Time Mum star previously opened up to OK! about why she had opted to give her daughter the unique name Finty Francis Haines-McCann instead of opting for a more common moniker.

Ferne told OK!: "It was on my name list when I gave birth to Sunday. I don’t know where I got it from, but when I typed it in [on Google]

"I saw Judi Dench’s daughter’s nickname is Finty.

"I’ve always loved it and never heard it anywhere else before. I just feel so connected to the name – she came out and she was just Finty. I think she sounds like a character out of Bridgerton.”

Ferne also explained that she gave Finty the middle name Francis after her grandad, she said that it was “a nod to Granddad Frank”.
