Sam Faiers has revealed her partner Paul Knightley went for a two-hour nap while she went through a nightmare labour with their two-month-old son
Sam Faiers' partner had a "two-hour nap" while she went through a nightmare labour with their baby son Paul.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star welcomed her first child into the world in December and she has revealed, while she was going through the traumatic birth, her beau Paul Knightley was getting some well-needed shut eye.
Speaking in a teaser clip for her new show 'The Baby Diaries', the blonde explained: "I had like severe, severe back pain and Paul was obviously, he was just next to me the whole time, wasn't you. Oh actually, you did go for a nap. He went for a two hour nap!
"I remember when I was in labour and I was thinking, 'Where's he gone?' and I thought I'd leave it for a little while and then about half an hour afterwards I thought, 'Has he gone upstairs for a nap?' Gaynor, Paul's mum, went upstairs and got him back down again. I was like, 'I'm going to talk to you about this after.' "
The 24-year-old reality TV star documented her pregnancy and part of her 26-hour labour for the forthcoming show but has admitted Paul wasn't so keen on the cameras at first.
She said: "He wasn't too keen, it took quite a bit of persuading. It's not his world - he's never been on camera before. I actually thought he was a natural, I thought he was quite good, but he did it for me.
"I'm glad that he got involved as much as he did because it shows us as a family unit going into parenthood."
