Lily Allen has announced that she was worried that her young daughter Ethel was going to die after she was struck down with a life-threatening illness!
Ethel was diagnosed with laryngomalacia which causes the causes the larynx to collapse into the airway and Ethel ha suffered with this since the age of 12 months.
Talking to BBC Radio 4’S Desert Island Discs the singer admitted:
‘It’s [the illness is] basically a problem with the throat.
‘She was working so hard to breathe, to just exist really, and she wasn’t really gaining any weight at all. ‘Because all of the food she was taking on, she was just expending the energy on this breathing process.
‘I was scared of losing her the whole time, all I wanted to do was just breast-feed her and to sit there in my chair with her and spend those precious hours into the night looking after your child.’
It must be so scary for Lily as a mother to see her child have this problem.
