British pop star Michelle Heaton's son was released from hospital on Wednesday (09Apr14) after he was treated for meningitis.

The former Liberty X singer and her husband Hugh Hanley were hit by a health scare over the weekend (05-06Apr14) when their son Aaron, who was born in February (14), fell ill.

The boy was admitted to a hospital and treated with antibiotics to fight viral meningitis, and Heaton is relieved to have her baby back home after four days.

She writes on, "Our beautiful baby boy Aaron Jay Hanley is home now and we couldn't be happier. It has been hell, I'm not going lie and only time will tell... if Aaron has been physically or mentally effected with having had viral meningitis... But the chances are slight so we just pray he will... be one of the lucky ones!

"We certainly are (lucky) to get our little man home. (Our daughter) Faith has been the best big sister ever, nursing him every day... now time for Lots of cuddles and family time... I love my family... More then (sic) words can say."
