The 31-year-old, who was just a month away from delivering her bundle of joy, was rushed to hospital three days after the party where she gave birth via emergency cesarean section.

She delivered a beautiful baby girl who was healthy but her virus-stricken mom remained hospitalised.

“After the birth, my sister showed significant improvement. The doctors even sent us a message saying, listen, have faith, because her lungs are improving, the heartbeat is improving (and) her blood pressure is improving," said Ambrosio.
