Erin Molan’s three-year-old daughter Eliza is rushed to hospital after she couldn’t breathe in the middle of the night

Erin Molan’s daughter Eliza was rushed to hospital early Thursday morning after she struggled to breathe in the middle of the night.

The rugby league commentator, 39, revealed on 2Day FM’s Hughesy, Ed & Erin radio show, she called an ambulance at 4am after her daughter couldn’t breathe.

‘We went to bed and Eliza was fine but a few times during the night she woke up saying her throat was sore,’ Erin explained.

‘But then at 4am this morning, she woke up and she couldn’t breathe. She doesn’t have asthma or anything so I called 000.’

Erin went on to say an ambulance eventually arrived and took them both to hospital, where they confirmed Eliza had suffered a croup attack.

‘It’s really scary as a mum not to know how to help her. I was alone with her as well. Sean her father is a policeman so he’s really good in emergencies but it’s not really my strength,’ she said.

Croup is a childhood condition that makes it difficult to breathe, and causes a hoarse voice and barking cough. It affects the windpipe, airways to the lungs and the voice box.

The pair announced their split in September 2021, with the sports commentator sharing the heartbreaking news via Instagram.

‘Some personal news, Sean and I have separated,’ she began.

‘Any breakdown of a family unit is incredibly difficult and we ask for privacy at this time – especially given the private approach that we have taken to our relationship.

‘We won’t be making any further comment.’

Erin and Sean had been engaged since April, 2017, a year after they began their relationship.

Erin announced her engagement to Sean while hosting The Footy Show, and also revealed she was expecting her first child on the program in December 2017.

The pair welcomed daughter Eliza in early June 2018.

'It's really scary as a mum not to know how to help her. I was alone with her as well. Sean her father is a policeman so he's really good in emergencies but it's not really my strength,' she said

In May, Erin told Stellar that she and Sean have a ‘great relationship,’ but just choose to keep things private.

‘Every relationship has its ups and downs, but we’re great,’ she told the publication.

‘I don’t post pictures of Sean because he’s a fairly private person and that’s not the way we show affection, or the way we are committed to each other.’
