Tom Burgess’ fiancée Tahlia Giumelli has candidly shared her struggles after giving birth to her second child prematurely at 36 weeks.

In a post shared to her Instagram on Monday, Tahlia revealed that she and her rugby league player partner were ‘running around like mad’ buying baby essentials following their daughter Elodie’s early arrival last week.

However, it wasn’t long before the ‘exhausted’ football WAG found herself hooked up to a hospital drip after contracting gastroenteritis alongside her other half and newborn.

In her lengthy social media post, Tahlia explained that since giving birth to Elodie, she had cried ‘lots of tears of happiness, frustration and anger’.

‘The few days after Elodie arrived we were running around trying to buy prams, install car seats and buying newborn clothes to get us through for a few days and getting the hang of nursing a prem baby.

‘As soon as we felt we were settled Sophie gets hit with gastro (and bounces back like a champ) then 5 days postpartum I catch the gastro bug which is extremely exhausting on top of already being exhausted.’

Tahlia explained that when she didn’t think she could take much more bad luck, her partner Tom also came down with gastroenteritis.

‘I was in hospital on a drip [and] I just cried and cried. I cried because I felt like I was missing out on the newborn bubble, cried because I was tired and exhausted, I cried because this wasn’t how I imagine being a mum of two was going to be like.’

The beauty went on to thank her ‘incredible support system’ of friends and family to get her through the challenging first week of being a mother of two.

‘At the time it felt like there was no end in sight, but it did get better, the minute I knew I could eat food again, it got better. Being a mum is bloody tough, but it won’t kill you, it just makes you stronger.’
