Dani Harmer had emergency C-section

Dani Harmer had to undergo an emergency Caesarean section.

The former 'Tracy Beaker' star gave birth to her baby daughter Avarie-Belle - her and her boyfriend Simon Brough's first child together - last month but has admitted she was in labour for three days before she was eventually rushed to the operating table to deliver the little one.

Speaking to HELLO! magazine, she said: "I was devastated. I cried a lot. My birth plan was literally; birthing pool, whale music, no drugs, let's just try and be really hippy about it and do some breathing. But it just turned into the complete opposite.

"Once she'd come out, I started to regain feeling so I could feel literally everything they were doing."

However, despite the traumatic birth, the 27-year-old actress is so overwhelmed by the amount of love she has for the little one already.

She explained: "I just feel the most happy I've ever felt in my entire life. We're in a complete little love bubble."

And, although Avarie is only weeks old, Dani is already thinking ahead and wants her former 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Vincent Simone to teach the little one how to dance when she's a bit older.

She said: "Hopefully Avarie will have a bit of rhythm then we can send her off with Uncle Vincent and he can teach her a bit of ballroom."

Meanwhile, Dani and Simon have only been dating just over a year but are hoping to tie the knot at some point in the future.

Simon said of a proposal: "I'm really keen on that, but I want to do it right. I want to build a much better relationship with her father in particular and I want to ask, man to man, and I want him to feel confident that it's a good choice. I just feel it's the right thing to do."
