Jordan Banjos baby admitted to hospital with sepsis and suspected meningitis

Jordan Banjo's newborn baby boy is in hospital after being admitted with sepsis and suspected meningitis.

The I'm A Celebrity star's wife Naomi said the couple rushed six-week-old Atreus to A&E last week after feeling as if "something wasn't right" and that he was taken in immediately.

Opening up in an emotional post on Instagram, she said it had been "the most emotionally draining, frightening week" of their lives but that things were "looking positive" now.

"We've cried a lot, we've barely slept, and we've discussed the worst… but we've carried each other through possibly one of the most traumatic weeks of our lives," said Naomi, who has two other children with the Diversity star.

"You never think it would be your baby and honestly I can’t explain how awful it is having to leave your poorly baby behind in a hospital and go home and just be 'mummy' to your other children when inside your heart is breaking.

"We are so lucky we are able to alternate nights with Tre and the kids so we can share ourselves between all 3 kids and keep some normality for the bigger 2. It's been tough but we’ve done our best for our babies. All we need now is our family back together where we belong."

She went on: "We are over 5 days in and we finally have a stable temperature. Things are looking positive for Tre Tre and we are finally seeing an improvement.

"Our super brave strong boy has had all sorts of blood tests, a lumber puncture and constant prodding and poking this week but there's finally light at the end of the tunnel and we cannot wait to get him home where he belongs.

"We still don’t really have answers and it's another week ahead of antibiotics but he's on the right path and we are just keeping positive."

Naomi also told her followers some of the signs that something had been wrong, saying that Atreus had refused to feed in the night and was "very lethargic and glossy eyed", had a rash and "mottled" skin and that he had cried in pain when she had picked him up or touched him.

Jordan, 30, shared an update on his own Instagram Story, posting a video of Naomi cuddling the baby.

"It's been a very tough, crazy week," he wrote.

"Family first, always."

Naomi welcomed Atreus on 20 April. She and Jordan are also parents to son Cassius Ashley, four, and daughter Mayowa, three.
