Michelle Heaton's baby son was rushed to hospital on Sunday (06.04.14).

The Liberty X singer had the ''worst'' day of her life yesterday when her five-week-old son Aaron, who she has with her personal trainer husband Hugh Hanley, was diagnosed with viral meningitis.

Michelle posted on Twitter: ''The last 24 hours has been the worst and scariest in my life.

''With everything I've been through mentally and physically, nothing and I mean nothing compares to that when your baby is sick.

''Our beautiful baby boy has been very looked after in hospital after being diagnosed with viral meningitis and reflux disease just to top it off.''

The tiny tot appears to be on the mend, however, and his relieved parents are grateful for the emergency care provided by their local hospital.

She added: ''He's fighting strong and taking the antibiotics well so far but at only five weeks old you can imagine our distress as parents.

''The hospital are amazing and he's well looked after and hopefully we will be able to take our little man home soon.''

Michelle, who also has two-year-old daughter Faith, previously described Aaron as her ''miracle'' because she thought she couldn't have any more children after being diagnosed with a mutated BRCA2 gene and decided to have a double mastectomy to alleviate her high risk of cancer.
