Discussing whether she had spoken to her son Louis about it, she said: ‘I know god bless him. I can’t decide if he’s proud of embarrassed. 

‘He says was I born in the kitchen? And I go yeah. It wasn’t what I intended. No one wants a gorgeous French fireman around their feet while they’re giving birth which is what I had. 

 ‘They’d never done that before and were so excited I just said get back around my head please.’
