She previously spoke of her surprise at her short labour during the recent birth of her son, but it seems that actress Tina O’Brien had her fair share of drama before little Beau came into the world.


The Coronation Street actress has revealed that her partner Adam Crofts suffered a comedy of errors in his efforts to help her while she prepared to welcome their first child together.


As well as accidentally starting to drive to the hospital without Tina, he also entered the maternity ward without her and proceeded to knock into the equipment there because he was so anxious!


“The comedy kept coming,” said Tina, who is also mum to six-year-old daughter Scarlett.


“We had to wait for my mum to arrive to take care of Scarlett and I had a contraction as I was walking towards the car. Adam had rushed off ahead of me to get the car ready and he started to drive off. I was like, ‘Hold on, I think you’ve forgotten something!’” said the 31-year-old.



And while Tina used hynobirthing techniques to deliver Beau, taking neither pain relief nor gas and air, Adam was in need of some attention following his son’s birth!


“I had literally just given birth to Beau when Adam turned to the midwife and said, ‘I don’t suppose you’ve got two paracetamol, have you? I’ve got a banging headache.’ I couldn’t stop laughing,” added Tina.


It just goes to show that it’s a traumatic process for the dads too!
