Shelby Tribble has spoken to fans after being readmitted to hospital following her son's birth.
The TOWIE star, 27, welcomed her first child with fiancé Sam Mucklow last week, after a five day stay in hospital.
After welcoming a son, Shelby was readmitted into hospital with pre-eclampsia – a condition that causes high blood pressure during pregnancy.
Joking that she "rattles as she walks," Shelby told fans that she is now taking lots of tablets and vitamins during her recovery.
Updating fans on how she's doing, Shelby penned: "To every single person that has messaged me, and are continuing to – family, friends and all you lovely people – thank you so much I am sooo overwhelmed by all the love, support and kindness it's really made me feel so special."

She went on: "It's so difficult for me to respond to everyone individually, it would take me too long to reply to you all. But just know I've read [them] and I am grateful for every single message sent to me.
"I'm not having an easy ride and still have to be monitored daily and I'm taking so many different medications and vitamins I could probably open my own pharmacy."
