British pop star Michelle Heaton was thrown into a panic over the weekend (05-06Apr14) when her five-week-old son was admitted to hospital suffering from meningitis.

The Liberty X star and her husband, Irish businessman Hugh Hanley, became parents for a second time in February (14) with the arrival of Aaron, a younger brother to the couple's two-year-old daughter Faith.

She took to her page to voice her concern after Aaron was hospitalised with viral meningitis on Saturday (05Apr14).

Heaton wrote in a series of posts on Sunday (06Apr14), "The last 24 hours has been the worst and scariest in my life... With everything I've been through mentally and physically nothing... I mean... nothing compares to that of 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. He's fighting strong & taking the antibiotics well so far... But at only... 5 weeks old one can only imagine our... distress as parents. He's very sick and in pain with the reflux. The hospital are... amazing and he's well looked after... Hopefully we will be able to take our little man home soon... I'm sure we will."

She later thanked her fans, adding, "Thank you all for your messages of support. We have read them all, and it means allot (sic) .. So thank you."
