The singer has previously revealed how she was also left fighting for her life and required emergency surgery after her placenta failed to come out.

Katona explained that experts are still unsure about what happened to her or her daughter: "They had 101 reasons what could have happened... she came out so fast that she reverted to how she was in the womb, living off the placenta... they put her on a life support machine."

Dylan-Jorge is Katona's first child with fiance George Kay. She has four others from previous relationships.
