Last week, Snezana revealed her devastation at being unable to take little Harper Jones home. 

The tot, who was born a month premature, remained in hospital after being rushed into the ICU. 

‘Our little Harper still isn’t home with us. It breaks my heart 1000 times a day,’ she wrote alongside images of the baby.

‘But then I remember she’s in the best place with incredible doctors and nurses caring for her around the clock. 

‘She’s doing so well now. I know she’ll be home soon enough and her three big sisters will finally be able to meet her but till then it’s back and forth to the hospital a number of times a day whilst trying to keep it together’. 

The images showed Harper being cradled by her father, former Bachelor Sam, with a tube in her nose.

Sam announced the news of the baby’s birth earlier this month, uploading a photo gallery of Snezana and himself posing with Harper, as well as a caption detailing his wife’s health scare immediately after giving birth. 

Posting a photo of Snezana lying in the hospital with newborn Harper, Sam, 41, wrote: ‘So here’s a story from the last five days. On Wednesday May 4th, one month early we welcomed Harper Jones Wood to the world.

’30 minutes after this photo was taken. Snez became sick. Really sick and before we knew it Harper was off to the special care unit and Mum was into ICU.

‘Of course in true Snez mum fashion, her only thoughts were for her little baby and it was breaking her heart that she couldn’t hold her,’ he said. 

Sam explained that Snezana and Harper were both struck down by an infection, and were forced to separate for five days. 

‘After finding an infection that both Snez and Harper had picked up and some incredible care from the nurses and doctors they were reunited yesterday and both doing well. Swipe across to see the video of being reunited. Dad crying, oh it was soooo beautiful,’ he wrote.

‘Keep swiping to see all of the girls terrorising mum in her hospital room for Mothers Day this morning.

‘As a dad I love my girls more than anything in this world but there truly is no bond like that of mother and child.’ 

Sam wrapped up the post, ‘@snezanawood you really are the strongest and most beautiful person I know and like you, thank god the force is strong in little Harper’.
