Myleene shares Apollo with her fiance Simon Motson, who has a son and a daughter from his previous marriage.

The former Hear’Say star also has daughters Ava, 15, and Hero, 11, who she shares with her ex-husband Graham Quinn.

It comes after Myleene revealed that Simon, 47, underwent a vasectomy in order to ‘give her a body a break’ after four heartbreaking miscarriages.

Taking to Instagram, Myleene said that to prevent any further pregnancies without her having to take birth control, Simon underwent the reversible surgical procedure.

She explained: ‘If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know about my story to get my rainbow baby Apollo and the four heartbreaking miscarriages I suffered before I finally got to hold him in my arms. 

‘The amount of drugs, the toll it took on my body, my head and my heart, the after effects, it’s a lot on the woman and men often admit to feeling helpless.

‘Whilst Child birth is undeniably all on the woman, birth control should be on both parties. My doctor said my body needed a rest, so..’

She also shared a clip of Simon hobbling out of a clinic after getting the vasectomy as Myleene joked: ‘Guess what I got for Christmas.’

She said: ‘He said my body had been through enough so it was HIS turn to do his bit. Fair play. Loads of my friends have confided their husbands would never do this for them despite not planning more kids. 

‘I put my body through so much to get our son and stay pregnant. the drugs play havoc with you, even the birth control ones so now I get to give my body a rest.

‘Huge respect for being ballsy enough to do this for us. Some men just get it. Love him so much.’ 

A vasectomy is a surgical procedure to cut or seal the tubes that carry a man’s sperm to permanently prevent pregnancy and normally takes around 15 minutes.

It is normally carried out under local anaesthetic, where you’re awake but don’t feel any pain, but in rare cases, you may have a general anaesthetic, where you’re asleep during the operation.

Myleene later added: ‘My stories have blown up so putting this here for the menfolk to see that it’s empowering not emasculating to do this for your partner and we respect you all the more for it.

‘The drugs I took to keep our son after losing four babies and the toll it took on my body followed by further birth control, it’s such a lot. It can’t all be on the woman.’

It was last October when Myleene first revealed she had suffered four miscarriages before giving birth to her ‘rainbow baby’ son Apollo.
