Jamie Yeo: 'I didn't even know I was in labour'
by Germaine Lim

DOUBLE happiness in double time.

It's been a whirlwind two weeks for Jamie Yeo.

The 33-year-old TV presenter tied the knot with her English beau of nearly two years, Mr Thorsten Nolte, on Oct 21.

And, she gave birth to their baby daughter Alysia on Tuesday.

Although Alysia was born 2 and a 1/2 months premature, she's doing well, Yeo told The New Paper.

The infant was 1.2kg and 36cm at birth.

The new mother, who was discharged from Gleneagles Hospital yesterday, said: "These things happen.

I didn't even know I went into labour. I just thought I had very bad stomach cramps an entire night.

"My water bag broke. It was a very easy (natural) delivery. I gave birth within 20 minutes of being admitted.

I didn't have an epidural or painkillers."

It was only later, when she saw a video Mr Nolte, 35, had made of the delivery, that she cried.

Yeo, who said she hadn't attended pre-natal classes before Alysia's arrival, added that the baby has been crying, "which is good as it shows her lungs have developed".

The new mum gushed: "She's beautiful. Her eyes are so big. She's got double eyelids.

"It's heartbreaking to see her (being) so little. I'd do anything for her."

The couple have yet to have a chance to hold Alysia as she is in the hospital's intensive care unit, where she will stay for the next four weeks.

Yeo said: "It's probably good that she's there because she's closely monitored all the time."

Meanwhile, she and Mr Nolte will be preparing for Alysia's homecoming as they have only a playpen and a stroller at the moment.

The couple intend to give their newborn a Chinese name but have yet to decide on one.

Wakakakaaa.... even the size of a baby's head can come out without "feeling".... so how will the little brothers (no matter if you are Angmo, Bah-E, African-Amercano or fellow Asian) feel in the middle of the "ocean".... :p :D

I saw a TV quiz show where beauty peagent finalists were invited to take part.
One of the pretty girls...when asked "what century we live in?"....she took a good 15 pregnant seconds to get the answer.
One of the audience almost died and said "WHAT?"

Jamie obviously will say we are living in the 20th Century.
