Lucy Pargeter gave birth to twin girls last month
Lucy, 40 – who gave birth to the girls after a long struggle with IVF – said that she was “desperate to watch her C-section,” but she couldn’t because there was a screen up throughout the whole thing.
Rudi then went into detail about what happened in the moments after the birth, with him explaining that the “30 seconds that the little ones stopped breathing actually felt like 10 minutes”.
He told OK! Magazine: “There was a moment when they weren’t breathing. They got handed over to the medical team straight away after they were born and they were manipulated to make sure their airways were clear.”
Lucy went on to say that she had a planned Caesarean as both the girls were breech.

She revealed: “I wanted to watch the whole thing but they put a screen up when you’re having a C-section and it couldn’t be lowered quite enough for me to see.
“In some hospitals there are mirrors on the ceiling so you can see what’s going on, but that wasn’t the case in mine. I was gutted.”
Lucy’s latest interview comes after she announced that she had given birth last month after first telling fans she was expecting back in October.
