Fans were stunned by the similarities between Selma and Arthur

Posting on Instagram, she wrote: "It was a painful induced labour. He was weeks late according to doctors. I felt fine. The inducing was horrific and no dilation. Full labour with non-dilation for 37 hours. I finally asked for an epidural. I was so at their mercy. And I had to protect him."

Selma was feeling particularly emotional on Arthur's eighth birthday as she revealed she was unable to be with him to celebrate in person.

"I slept two hours. There is a pain. In my head. In my throat where the tears start. I want to smell him. Tell him I am so proud of him. Hold him. And I will. Just not on his birthday. Which is today."
