Louise Thompson has been pictured for the first time since revealing she nearly died giving birth to her son Leo-Hunter. 

The former Made In Chelsea star, 31, who spent five weeks in hospital suffering from complications following the birth of her first child, headed out with her fiancé Ryan Libbey in Chelsea on Wednesday.

Louise cradled her son briefly before Ryan, 31, carried Leo in a baby sling as the couple could finally enjoy their first taste of parenthood after a terrifying few weeks. 

Out and about: Louise Thompson has been pictured for the first time since revealing she nearly died giving birth to her son Leo-Hunter 

Louise, who is still recovering at her West London home, looked happy to be able to go out for a walk in the capital. 

Dressed in a tan suede coat and a pale purple cosy co-ord, the television personality beamed as she walked alongside Ryan who cooed to baby Leo. 

She rounded off her cosy look with a yellow beanie hat, a very long knitted hat and pale yellow trainers as she strolled along with her partner and son.

Meanwhile, Ryan bundled up from the cool weather in a black beanie hat and a large padded coat, beneath which he wrapped his newborn son for extra warmth.

Little Leo-Hunter looked adorable in a white baby grow adorned with cute deer before being wrapped up in a cosy coat in the sling.

The family headed into a coffee shop to grab some hot beverages during the walk, with mum and dad masking up as they went inside.

On Tuesday, Louise shared a slew of new sweet snaps of her baby boy as she marked him turning seven weeks old. 

Reflecting on how far her son has come since his hospital stint, Louise shared on Instagram: ‘Happy 7 weeks squirrel chops please stop growing, you’re almost as big as mummy.’ 

In the post, Louise looked radiant in a black maxi dress as she cradled her newborn while smiling for the camera.

The former Made In Chelsea star also shared sweet shots of husband-to-be Ryan proudly posing with their little one strapped into a baby carrier.    

Louise spent five weeks in hospital following ‘serious complications’ after labour and has previously spoken about how her ‘rock’ Ryan was by her side throughout.

Louise took to Instagram on Friday to thank him for everything he has done, including ‘calling ambulances, waiting outside operating theatres and sleeping on hard hospital floors’.

In the post the television personality told how he it had been the ‘hardest year of her life’ but that he helped her recover when they returned home.

She explained how he ‘showered her, changed sanitary towels, injected her’ and brought her little one to see her in hospital so they could bond. 

Louise signed off by saying she ‘commended’ Ryan who had ‘witnessed things no partner should ever have to’, before calling him her ‘rock’. 

Louise previously shared the first picture of her adorable son on her page and admitted ‘it wasn’t easy’ to explain what has happened to her in recent weeks.

The reality star had announced that she was taking a break from social media on November 14, ahead of the birth, but concerned fans after remaining silent in the following weeks. 

On December 23, in a lengthy post, Louise admitted that she ‘never imagined that so many bad things could happen to me, but to dance with death twice brings a whole new view of the world – a stark reminder of how short and sacred life really is.’

While she confessed that she was ‘in a bit of a strange place mentally and physically,’ the new mum said that she was finally at a place where she could ‘see a future where I get to live peacefully on this earth with my son.’

Ryan has yet to speak about the birth of their little boy or share any pictures on his Instagram, however, he has since updated his bio to read: ‘daddy’.
