Una Healy took to social media to reveal that her five-year-old daughter Aoife Belle was rushed to hospital after suffering a ‘freak accident’.
While she didn’t specify the details of what happened, Una explained that her little girl tripped and managed to somehow chip a bone in her elbow, and doctors said she’d need surgery to fix it.
Una took to Instagram to tell her fans about the awful accident that her ‘brave’ daughter had and thanked the doctors and nurses that took care of her, now she’s recovering well.
She posted a picture of Aoife Belle sitting up in a hospital bed, post-surgery, with her arm in a cast and sling.
The Saturdays singer captioned the post: ‘Our brave little trooper Aoife Belle.
‘She suffered an unfortunate freak accident where she tripped and chipped a bone in her elbow that ended up requiring surgery.
‘Thank you so much to all the fantastic care staff at Northampton General Hospital and Children’s A&E. We greatly appreciate your kindness and care. Thank you.’
The mum’s post received nearly 38k likes and over 500 comments from fans who wished Aoife well.
‘Ah poor Aoife and poor mum! Hope she’s feeling better soon!’, said one fan.
‘Poor little thing!! So brave. Hope she makes a speedy recovery!! Xx’, commented another.
Only two days before the unfortunate accident, the mum-of-two shared a photo of herself with her two kids, Aoife Belle and two-year-old Tadhg John in the back seat of a car, posing for the camera.
Una often shares little snippets of her family life with fans on social media, with pictures of her kids and her husband Ben Foden.
She has previously admitted that she feels her little family-of-four is complete.
When she spoke to Fabulous magazine a few months after Tadhg was born, she admitted: ‘I’m done now. I really don’t want any more.
‘It’s tough and really hard work. I’m just so happy with two.’
