Ollie Locke and his husband Gareth have received their new twins, but it hasn’t been easy for them in their first few weeks.
Following the revelation that babies Apollo and Cosima spent’several weeks’ in critical care, we now know that one of them had to be transferred to a separate hospital.
On Sunday (August 20), the Made in Chelsea stars announced the arrival of their two new bundles of joy, who were born via their pal and surrogate Bex.
They revealed the news on their new YouTube channel, Our Daddy Diaries, where they would be updating their followers on their journey as brand new fathers.
In the most recent video, Ollie and Gareth notified their fans that one of the twins had to be transferred to a different hospital due to medical difficulties.
Ollie and Gareth were sent home ‘to try and get some sleep’ after visiting their new infants in the NICU (neonatal critical care unit) and returning the next day.
However, Gareth added that after midnight, they received a call from the medical personnel stating that one of the infants, Apollo, was unable to breathe on his own.
Ollie then said: ‘We got another phone call around 4.30 in the morning – we’d waited up until then – where our son was moved from one hospital to another.
‘By ambulance, they blue-lighted him to another hospital – that was incredibly difficult but he was an incredible fighter. That had to put a tube down into him.’
However, little Apollo then started showing signs of recovery: ‘Within five minutes he said “Nope, thank you”, ripped the cord out, and started breathing on his own.’
Gareth added that after they arrived at the new hospital, the babies grew’stronger and stronger’ and were soon able to go home.
Ollie broke the heartbreaking news in December 2021 that their first surrogate mother had miscarried six weeks after an IVF surgery.
However, the couple stated in February 2023 that they had attempted to locate another surrogate mother and that they were expecting Apollo and Cosima.
