Emily Ghougassian who we all fell in love with on Sam Wood's season of The Bachelor Australia, has revealed that she is currently in the critical care unit after giving birth.

The reality star took to Instagram to share the news with her followers that her and her husband Pierre, has welcomed their new daughter, Laila Belle into their lives.

The Instagram post stated that while their daughter has been moved out of ICU, Emily was suffering from severe pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome and was in the critical care unit.

The most reads, “Laila Belle Ghougassian, born 03.07.19, at 2:24pm, weighing 2.022kg. (Pronounced Lay-La)… Baby is doing well and has been moved out of ICU and into the special care nursery as of today. Mum is not doing so great, with severe pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome, and is in the critical care unit. Thanks for everyone’s messages of love and support. Laila is simply gorgeous and we are so smitten!”


Emily was sent to hospital last week when doctors became concerned that she was at a high risk of seizures.

At the time Emily took to her Instagram to share with her followers, “After being in hospital now with diagnosed preeclampsia since Friday last week, feeling like death, not being able to make it to my baby shower last Sunday, and just trying to keep her in for a bit longer, it's been emotionally and physically really difficult (to say the least)”

Adding, “But thank God I have this guy. I've fallen in love with my husband so much more over the last week. He's been by my side almost every minute.”

Sadly, this meant that Emily missed her own baby shower but her husband attended instead!


She wrote, “He went in my place, and hung out with a bunch of lovely ladies for the afternoon. You're amazing @pierreghougassian, there is no way I could get through this without you.

“You're going to make the most amazing daddy to our baby girl.”

We wish her a very speedy recovery.
