The pair confirmed they were expecting with a cute Instagram video last December, writing: “Baby O’Connor coming next summer.”

Just 10 days ago, Brown also revealed the gender of her baby after enjoying a lavish baby shower with family and friends, with blue confetti showing they would be having a boy.

But things took a terrifying turn when she realised something was different about her ‘body and movements’, and had to go to a local hospital.

Explaining what happened, Brown wrote on Instagram: "Recently... feeling grateful that everything is all healthy and looking ok.

"Definitely so emotional when you overthink what’s going on in your body and movements differ between days.

"I had reduced movements which were all explainable but it’s so nerve wracking when it’s your first time going through it all.

“So thankful for the wonderful NHS and really glad we decided to go with a local hospital rather than in London.

"Also so grateful for my wonderful partner too, has been a bit of a stressful few days but so beyond thankful for my good health, good people around me and phenomenal professionals in our hospital."

The post was accompanied by a series of photos from their time in hospital, including a snap of dad-to-be O'Connor taking a cheeky nap on a bed.

Brown’s fans sent their love to the star after her scare, with many commenting to praise her for doing ‘the right thing’.

One said: “I had reduced movements alllll the time with my little one, it’s worth going in every time! Well now she’s actually a pretty lazy baby so makes sense.”

Another agreed: “Never ever doubt yourself, always go and get checked.”

Someone else wrote: “Monitoring your baby’s movements and going for a check when you have a feeling something might be wrong is NOT overthinking, it’s being a good mum.”

A fourth added: “You did the right thing! Always best to check reduced movement. Glad everything is OK.”
