Emmerdale actor Danny Miller has posted an moving Instagram post thanking the NHS for saving his niece’s life.
In his post, the soap star, who has played Aaron Dingle on the popular show since 2008, expressed his happiness that his newborn niece, who was a premature baby arriving at only 26 weeks, was now able to come home from the hospital 100 days after she was bon.
‘This post isn’t seeking your attention or sympathy for me,’ wrote Danny. ‘This post is seeking your attention and sympathy for the #NHS
‘100 days ago.. My gorgeous little niece.. – Callie Lennon Miller – .. was born into this world to begin her battle of life.
‘After just 26 weeks in the comfort of my incredible Sister In Laws womb, she brightened up our lives as she was born.
‘Born 14 weeks early, she weighed a tiny 608g (1lb 5 oz). She spent 100 days in NICU under the care of the incomparable staff of the #NHS – at both #RoyalBoltonHospital & #StMarysHospital in Manchester.
‘Thanks to the team of heroes at both hospitals, she can now breathe and feed on her own and is free of incubators and tubes.’
After expressing his gratitude towards the medical staff that cared for his premature baby niece, the proud uncle then went on to praise the little girl’s parents, writing: ‘Weighing a whopping ‘6lb 6oz’ she is FINALLY coming home into the loving care of two beautiful human beings, in my Brother @manclydrawnboy & his courageous wife Jessica Miller, who are both already model parents.
‘If you had just half the inspiration, bravery and determination that these three have, you can overcome the impossible. They did. And I couldn’t be prouder’
‘“Welcome to The Big Wide World, Princess,’ he concluded, ‘I will do everything I can for you and more, I promise”’.
Fans flooded the heart-warming post with comments, writing about their own similar experiences and of course remarking on how adorable the new arrival looks in the image that accompanies the emotional caption.
We hope the little bundle of joy enjoys her new home and wish the family a happy and healthy future!
