Tori was speaking at the launch of her new clothing line, Little Maven, for JC Penney, where she was joined by Stella, Hattie, Liam and husband Dean. She has revealed dramatic new details of the moment her four-year-old daughter saved her life when she fell ill during her recent pregnancy.
A month after welcoming son Finn Davey, the mother of four explained that Stella came to her aid when she 'nearly died' after suffering the life threatening condition placenta previa. Tori told People magazine that she was in bed with just her daughter when she woke to find herself in a 'massive' pool of blood.
'I stumbled to the bathroom, dizzy from losing so much blood. When I got there, I thought, "This is it."
'There was so much blood I thought, "I’m dying. Not just [losing] the baby, but I’m dying."'
'I’ll never forget the look on her face when she saw me surrounded by blood everywhere. I didn’t want to panic her and I said, "Baby, will you go get Daddy? Just tell him I’m bleeding." Her eyes were as big as saucers and - this is going to make me cry - she looked like such a little toddler warrior. She said, "Okay, Mama" she ran and two seconds later Dean came in and basically had to wrap me up to get me to the hospital.'
Thankfully all ended well and both, Tori and baby, enjoy now the company of their beautiful family.
