It was 'touch and go' : Amanda Holden on labour ordeal

Monday February 27, 2012

Amanda Holden is not planning to have any more children following the complicated birth of her second daughter.

The Britain's Got Talent judge was "moments from death" after losing more than 13 litres of blood during the caesarean section.

She said her heart stopped for 40 seconds and it was "touch and go" whether she lived or died shortly after the birth of baby Hollie.

Amanda, 41, told The Sun that her and husband record producer Chris Hughes, 39, now had the "perfect family" and were not looking to expand their brood.

"Two kids is the perfect number for me," said the actress. "I think we will stop at two."

"I think that this is what we're supposed to have. Maybe we will get some rabbits instead."

Amanda also touched upon the baby she lost in February 2011:

"We will never forget our little boy obviously. I said just after Hollie was born that our family is complete and I mean that. I feel so lucky that we've got where we are."
