Amanda Holden "covered" the floor with 15 litres of blood following the birth of her daughter Hollie Rose.
The 'Britain's Got Talent' judge underwent a difficult Caesarean-section to deliver the tot on January 23, and the situation got so traumatic that even her husband, Chris Hughes, was asked to leave the operating theatre.
She said: "In total, it was 15 litres of blood. It wouldn't clot. It didn't clot and then it did for a bit and then it didn't and it kept coming out.
"Everybody's feet were covered with blood and then Chris was thrown out of the operating theatre. And that's when it stopped."
The 41-year-old star - who already has six-year-old daughter Lexi with Chris - returned to work on 'Britain's Got Talent' less than three weeks after the complicated birth but she thinks she had to spring back into action for the sake of her family.
Amanda added in an interview with ITV1's 'This Morning': "I was out of hospital a week after everything happened.
"I don't quite know how I did it because I wasn't particularly well but I think it's ... my mind, in my mind I'm quite strong and the doctor's did say, it was because I was tenacious and stubborn and I didn't want to stay. But I've got Lexi, and I can't lay there in a hospital bed when you've got another one."
