Ola then added: "Yeah, we don't want you getting ill and going into hospital. We need you to look after us!" James further explained: "Ella's the one thing that is keeping us going, she's keeping us busy. Time flies around the baby. I don't want to be doom and gloom but in our life at the moment, Ella is the one joy. She's been a breath of fresh air. I think without her in my life at the moment I'd be even more of a mess. I know I have to be strong for her. She's been a little pickle."
