It comes after Joss detailed her ‘scary’ experience giving birth to her son by emergency c-section following a devastating miscarriage one year before.
With time in hospital when delivering her precious bundle was a difficult one, as she has explained how she was already in ‘massive amounts of pain’ before being given the news she required a c-section.
Speaking to People Magazine, Joss said she had been ‘preparing’ her ‘whole life’ for a natural birth.
‘[Shackleton’s] heartbeat was at normal rate. And then all of a sudden, it just slowed down, massively slowed down. I thought, “Oh, that’s my baby. That’s not good”.’

Speaking about the nurse taking care of her, Joss said: ‘She comes up to me and she goes, “The room is going to fill up with a lot of people – Don’t worry about it, just stay calm,” then Cody looks at me and he said the same thing.’
Not long afterwards, baby Shackleton’s heart rate ‘massively slowed down again’.
‘He was coming down the birth canal, and when my uterus split, his head went into my abdomen and he went back up… They had to bring him back to breathing again.’
It was then that doctors decided to put her to sleep – and by the time she had woken up, her baby boy was born.
The singer announced in April that she was expecting another child, revealing that six months prior she had a suffered a devastating miscarriage.
