Paris Fury reveals daughter was 'dying in her arms' during traumatic birth

PARIS Fury has recalled the horrifying moment her daughter Athena was "dying in her arms" following her traumatic birth.

The 31-year-old welcomed the little one in August with her boxing champ husband Tyson, 33.

The mother-of-six revealed that the two-month-old was born with a fast heartbeat of 300 beats a minute, the norm is around the 120 beats mark.

Paris said medics tried to slow it down but the Loose Women panellist said it caused "a load of other complications" and she was transferred from the Royal Lancaster Infirmary to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

The Fury family then endured a nightmare two weeks when the little one was placed into a neo-natal intensive care unit [NICU].

Speaking to OK! magazine, she explained: "We went over there and they sedated her and put her on an incubation, where they put a tube down her throat to breathe.

"They put her on tablets to slow her heart down and when they took her off the tube, they thought it was going to be normal. But I think the accumulation of sedatives, painkillers, beta blockers for her heart and everything was just too much."

"She was in my arms and she stopped breathing and became completely unresponsive. Her heart rate was fading away – she was dying in my arms.

"They took her off me, put her on the table and resuscitated her. Tyson came running in. It was horrific. They managed to get her heart going and everything stabilised."

Paris and Tyson were finally able to bring their sixth child home on August 20 and the family of eight were reunited after a stressful ordeal.

The heavyweight champ was full of praise for the staff at the Alder Hey Family House Trust in Liverpool, the hospital that looked after Athena.

Speaking at the time, Tyson said: "I'm just here feeding my little girl. Off the ICU, on the mend, should be going home soon.

"Thank you to God and thank you to all the doctors and nurses who have helped her."

Tyson has since set up a GoFundMe page for the hospital, raising nearly £50,000 to date.

Athena is their third daughter, following Venezuela, 11, and Valencia Amber, three.

They also have three boys – Prince John James, eight, Prince Tyson II, four, and two-year-old Prince Adonis Amaziah.

Despite the family's joy following the new arrival, the couple have also had to overcome heartbreak in recent years too.

Paris met 6ft 9in Tyson when they were 16 and 17 and got married in front of 300 guests in 2008.

They have made no secret of their desire to have a big family, with Tyson recently declaring they wanted 11 children – enough for a "mixed football team."

And while they've been blessed with six children, it hasn't always been easy for the couple.

In 2014, they tragically lost a baby when Paris was six months pregnant, and she was forced to endure a stillbirth.

The traumatic loss occurred at the same time Tyson’s uncle Hughie died.

While Tyson managed to resume his career, just days before his comeback fight against Sefer Seferi in 2018, Paris tragically suffered another miscarriage.

Fearing it would impact her husband in the ring, or have an effect on his mental health, she decided not to tell him until after the fight.

Soon after the fight, Paris fell pregnant with son Tyson, who they welcomed three months prematurely.

Now, the family are a stronger unit than ever before, with Tyson recently saying: "Got a beautiful wife, beautiful kids, they’re all healthy. That’s the most important thing, you know, your health and your family."

Tyson is proud of his roots in the travelling community and while he wants his children grow up with the same values, the boxer is keen to break tradition in some ways to provide what he believes is best for his kids.

Despite Paris saying their children would likely leave school aged 11 and stay at home until they marry, Tyson has said: "I would be very, very proud if one of my children were to be the first [of the family] to graduate from university.

"Maybe we could even have the first Dr Fury one day."
