Frankie Bridge 'terrified' as she rushes son, 6, to A&E after croup attack

Frankie Bridge has said she’s ’emotionally drained’ after rushing her six-year-old son Parker to A&E.

The Saturdays star explained that her son has suffered a croup attack, and was ‘gasping for air.’

Croup is a common childhood condition that mainly affects babies’ and young children’s airways.

Sharing a snap on Instagram of herself cuddling up to the little one, she wrote: ‘Was in a&e last night with this little guy… with yet another croup attack… doesn’t matter how many times it happens…

‘To see someone gasping for air is always terrifying. Breaks my heart. But he’s absolutely fine now… all just very sleepy…’

Later sharing a clip, Frankie, 31, said she’s ‘one very tired, emotionally drained mummy.’

However, she explained there was one person in the house who wasn’t affected at all – her youngest son Carter, who slept right through the incident.

Frankie wrote on her Instagram Stories that the little one was ‘full of beans’ and had her up after three hours.

The Higher hitmaker has been open in the past about Parker’s croup, with the star previously explaining how he’s the prime example of how quickly kids can bounce back.

‘The face of a proud emotionally drained Mum who’s child has been really poorly and scared her half to death and a child who is the prime example of how well and quickly they bounce back,’ she said at the time.

‘This little man is so full of love and this surprise hug felt more amazing than he will ever know… not sure who was looking after who…?’

The star is very honest about mum life, and previously had to explain a parenting decision after she faced criticism for letting her sons play on iPads while out for dinner at a restaurant.

Admitting she’s an ‘iPad mum,’ Frankie shared a snap of the pair of them engrossed in their devices.

She later told Metro.co.uk: ‘I just wanted to show that reality for other parents who do the same, and say, “It’s normal, it’s fine.”

‘But obviously I knew there were going to be people that were highly offended by that and think it’s a disgrace.

‘I mean, good on them – 99% of the people were like, “Oh my God, that’s exactly the same as my kids”, so you take the rough with the smooth.

‘But it’s always a debate. Anything to do with kids and parenting, everyone has always got such an opinion.’
