Greg, 33, shared a photo of his long-time partner in hospital and hooked up to a monitor as he revealed their ordeal.
He said: “So last night was stressful.
“After a busy day of tidying and clearing Susie suddenly realised she hadn’t felt the baby move in a while. We went through all the steps to try and make her move and nothing happened. The worry was caused by the fact that normally she doesn’t stop moving! We jumped in the car and headed to the hospital. They found the heartbeat and then in typical fashion, she kicked!”
The TV star added: “I almost cried when the heartbeat was found. The stress of being pregnant never gets any easier.”

At the time Susie admitted having a “long, tough road” so far in her third pregnancy as she struggled with Hyperemesis gravidarum – a serious condition which causes extreme morning sickness.
She wrote alongside her pregnancy photo shoot: “Really happy to share we’ve got someone new joining the family early next year.
“The boys are very excited to meet their sister and we’ve been buying lots of miniature pairs of tights. It’s been another difficult HG pregnancy and a long, tough road to get here but we’re so very grateful.
