‘Christian was absolutely freaking out. And then when we were doing the emergency C-section, my heart rate was going down, the baby’s heart rate was going down,’ Quinn told co-stars Amanza Smith and Vanessa Villela. ‘And then one of the nurses went up to Christian and said, “You need to make a priority right now.

In a confessional for the show, Quinn gets emotional

‘I just remember before I went under the anesthesia, hearing the baby’s heart rate was going down, and they were afraid it was gonna stop,’ she said as she teared up.

‘That’s the last thing I heard… until I woke up. So it was a nightmare, it was literally a nightmare… We’re thankful to say that all three of us were able to come home from the hospital, and we’re just counting our blessings each and every day.’

In September Christine told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning that she and her baby almost died.

Christine confessed that she’s ‘more vulnerable’ after the terrifying ordeal as she insisted that she is ‘longer interested in petty stuff in the office.’ 

Scary: She said the danger started before that. 'He was coming out sideways, and his umbilical cord was wrapped around him. They said his heart rate's going down. All I hear is, "Emergency C-section. Let's go, let's go!"' said the pinup on Selling Sunset

Christine explained of her emergency C-section: ‘I was flatlining, I learnt to be grateful for life. Time is so precious.

‘In the new season [of Selling Sunset] I am more vulnerable as I tell my story. I no longer interested in petty stuff in the office.’ 

Speaking about becoming a mother, Christine gushed: ‘I never thought I could love anyone more than myself.

‘He’s the light of my life. the focus isn’t on me anymore, I want to be a good mother and role model.’ 

In July she explained the difficult birth on social media.

‘Happy 2 month birthday to my sweet little baby! Two months ago today, you made an extremely dramatic entrance, just like your mommy. (Except you were very early, and I am always late),’ she wrote. 

‘Reliving the trauma on Selling Sunset about my birth experience, was one of the most difficult things I have ever done; let alone allowing these very raw, personal moments of my life captured on camera.

‘I am not often publicly vulnerable, as I feel the responsibility to put on a brave face, despite still feeling at the time hopeless, terrified, and to this day traumatized. Both myself, and baby Christian are lucky to be alive.

‘After my water broke the day I was filming, I was rushed to the hospital already 9cm dilated. Hyperventilating from the excruciating pain, I was immediately rushed in to an emergency crash C-section due to both our heart rates instantly plummeting. Baby C umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck. 

‘Baby C was seconds away from not making it. The surgeons didn’t even have time to count their tools before stitching me up as I was flatlining.

They ran me through the X-ray machine immediately after surgery to ensure there was no remaining tools left in my body. I am so grateful for the doctors and surgeons that saved BOTH of us.

‘I thank God everyday for my blessings, and my miracle baby. Always remember life is too short and grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Let go of what you can, and take chances. Give everything and have no regrets. Life is too short to be unhappy. 

‘With this, I realized that with the responsibility of being a role model, it requires complete authenticity, and I wouldn’t be genuine if I didn’t share my vulnerabilities in the process. That to me is the true definition of being a true Boss Bitch.’
