Paris Fury ‘screamed for help’ after daughter Athena stopped breathing

Tyson Fury's wife Paris has detailed the devastating moment she thought her newborn daughter would die after she suddenly stopped breathing in the hospital.

In August, the pair's little girl Athena was born with health complications and was placed on a ventilator in the intensive care unit just days after her birth before finally being discharged and allowed to go home.

And Paris, who Tyson called his "soulmate", has now detailed how she "screamed for help" after realising that her sixth child was not breathing while in her arms.

"She stopped breathing, she became non-responsive," Paris recalled on Tuesday's episode of Loose Women. "I screamed for the nurses because she wasn't connected to none of the machines anymore."


Paris explained that the nurses quickly took Athena from her in an attempt to resuscitate her.

Tyson, who at the time had taken a break from hospital duty, returned to his distraught and screaming wife.

"He came running in, I just broke down and screamed. I said, 'She's dying! She's dying!', and it looked that way," Paris said.

Luckily that wasn't the case, and doctors were able to save her life.

Paris said: "They ventilated her again and obviously she had to get better, she just had to get better on her own, which when they took her off the machine, and everything's come round, she has.

"Her heart rate is normal again now, her health is all back to normal, everything's perfect. But it was such a scary two weeks, and you don't expect it with your sixth child."

Elsewhere in the interview, Paris was left emotional as she was surprised with a romantic video message from boxer husband, Tyson.

Tyson appeared on the screen in the sweet pre-recorded video message to congratulate her on the success of her new book, Paris Fury: Love & Fury.

He said to his wife: "Tyson Fury, aka the 'Gypsy King', but guess what, you already knew that, didn't you, Paris."

The boxer continued: "Just want to say a massive, massive congratulations to my wife Paris on her new book. It's doing so fabulous, so well."

"I'm very, very proud of her. Not only is she a top mother, a top wife and unbelievable partner and soulmate, she's also going to be a best-selling author."

He then added: "All the best, Paris. I love you so much. God bless you!"

Tyson and Paris, who have been married since 2009, welcomed little Athena to their brood on Sunday, August 8.

The couple already share children Venezuela, 11, Prince John, nine, Prince Tyson II, four, Valencia, three, and Prince Adonis, two.
