Taking to Instagram she explained: ‘He does have a nasty virus, one we haven’t heard of and that isn’t particular common.’ 

Chloe, who gave birth in February, suffered a ‘few complications’ during her pregnancy and also shares a daughter, Isla, 22-months, with fiancé Grant Hall.

Speaking to New Magazine, a representative confirmed: ‘She had to leave Isla for four days as it was at a closed unit due to her son’s infection, so no-one could be there with her.’

Friends claimed Chloe’s son, who’s name has not been disclosed, came down with a ‘rash all over his body’ before being taken to hospital, earlier this month.

A source told OK! at the time: ‘He came up in a high temperature and she rushed him to hospital – he’s got suspected meningitis.’  

‘He and Chloe had to stay in overnight and he’s on a drip at the moment while they run tests. Chloe’s had lots of complications during her pregnancy. She wanted everything to run smoothly and this is really worrying for her.’ 

MailOnline has contacted Chloe’s rep for comment.

Keeping the pregnancy fairly private from social media, Chloe shared that her and Grant were ‘uncertain’ during many times in the pregnancy of the health of their baby.

Chloe was in the high-risk category whilst pregnant after she had to have half her cervix removed.  

Doctors discovered she had high grade three abnormal cells during a routine smear test, which could have led to cervical cancer if untreated.

The reality star went through surgeries to have the cells treated, but later found out she had a ‘hole’ in her bladder following a suture carried out at 13 weeks- which put her bladder at incredible risk.

Despite suffering from severe pain and complications with her bladder, the star decided to not undergo surgery to remove the stitch because she didn’t want to put her baby at risk, saying it was the absolute ‘last resort’. 

Despite the many complications during pregnancy, Chloe revealed that both herself and her baby boy were healthy upon giving birth.
