She was then showered down by Amy, while leaning onto Matt screaming in pain.

Moments later, Tammy’s sisters attached a TENS machine – designed to assist with pain – to her back. 

After 30 minutes, Tammy started pushing out her newborn daughter surrounded by her family.

Tammy’s footage also captures her newborn’s umbilical cord being cut, along with the moment nurses step in to clean her precious child.

Tammy, who shares two older children with her ex Reece Hawkins, announced last week she’d given birth to a ‘perfect little girl’.

‘The absolute hardest yet most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. An unmedicated VBA2C [vaginal birth after two C-sections]. No words,’ Tammy wrote in her caption.

‘Birth story to come. For now just resting in my love bubble with my perfect little girl wow,’ she added.

Matt also shared the exciting news to his Instagram page, writing: ‘Our little girl, perfect in every way.

‘Mum was incredible and so strong. It’s been a roller coaster twenty four hours but welcoming her into the world has made everything better’.

‘She’s beautiful, 12 fingers and all,’ he added, referring to his daughter’s rare mutation called polydactylism.

Tammy was also born with 12 fingers, and two removed shortly after she was born.

Tammy announced she was expecting her first child with her Ironman fiancé Matt in December, just two weeks after their engagement.
