Lydia Bright has revealed her one year old daughter Loretta has Bronchitis after she rushed her little girl to A&E on Tuesday night as she was having problems with her breathing.
The TOWIE star, 30, first thanked all of her followers for their kind messages, including one paediatric nurse who advised Lydia to seek medical attention in hospital.
Lydia – who is said to be rekindling her romance with James 'Arg' Argent – wrote on her Instagram story: "From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I received so many messages re Loretta's breathing.
"Last night, it got really bad and I thought it was best to go to A&E and get it checked out."
She then shared the message she received from the nurse, reading: "Hi Lydia, I'm a paediatric staff nurse in A&E and hope you don't mind me messaging but Loretta sounds as though she has a significant wheeze which may need an inhaler and steroids.
"If you feel her breathing becomes laboured and she starts sucking in under her ribs please seek medical advice."
She continued: "There are some really nasty bugs going around at the moment.
"As a mum myself it's awful when your little one is unwell. Keep safe x."
Moments later, the mum of one went on to post a picture of her daughter sleeping as she penned: "It turns out my poor baby has Bronchitis."
In her next post, Lydia shared the messages and voice notes she sent to her mum Debbie, with one of them reading: "Mum I'm really worrying.
"This is Loretta's breathing. It's like she can't catch her breath. She fell asleep at 6:30 and I'm trying to keep her elevated and have given her Calpol and kids cough mixture but I'm really worrying. Shall I take her to hospital?"

"It's been a really hard 48 hours," the blonde beauty explained to her fans.
"No matter how old I get, I will always need my mum and dad. Thank you for always being there."
It comes after Lydia opened up on mum guilt as she struggles to find the balance between being a mum and juggling her ongoing work projects.
She added: "I woke up this morning with an enormous wave of mum guilt. Work is so busy, which I am so grateful for, but it is impossible to get on top of everything with two days of childcare.
"I went to bed feeling fine, then this morning I woke up feeling like I hadn’t made Loretta my number one priority. I felt so sad until she ran excitingly to her teacher and I caught up with my overwhelming email inbox.”
Lydia has brought up her daughter as a single mum after splitting from her ex-boyfriend, Lee Cronin, when she was just 11 weeks pregnant.
