Sam Thompson says ‘nearly losing’ sister Louise was ‘toughest thing he’s had to deal with’

Sam Thompson has vowed to cherish each day and never take things for grated again, after his older sister Louise nearly died while giving birth to her baby son, Leo.

Louise, 31, was left in intensive care after "dancing with death twice" during son Leo-Hunter Libbey’s complicated birth in November.

The Made in Chelsea star was in hospital for over a month recovering, before being discharged from hospital just before Christmas, as she told her followers that "2021 has been the hardest year of my life by miles".

Louise and brother Sam are incredibly close and 29 year old Sam has praised Louise an "incredible woman" as he told his fans that he plans to "never take any day for granted ever again”.

Sharing a photo of himself hugging his smiling big sister next to a Christmas tree, Same wrote: “2021 has been a year of many highs and many lows.

“But nearly losing my sister was one of the toughest things I’ve ever had to deal with. The hardest situations teach the biggest lessons, and I learnt to never take any day for granted ever again.

“To see all the pain she has suffered, and all the setbacks she has faced, and to see her still smiling at the end of it just shows how incredible of a woman she is.”

He continued to write: “Just to see you put on a dress for the first time in months is everything I could have asked for and more.

“I am so grateful for you and your strength @louise.thompson and I promise 2022 will be your year!! And I will be there to piss you off every step of the way.”

Louise thanked her bother for his support as she wrote in the comments section: “Bless you, bless my whole family. Sorry for the perpetual turmoil, hopefully I will be back to old Louise soon.”

It comes after Louise penned her own heartfelt tribute to her fiance Ryan Libbey, calling him her “rock”.

She shared heartwarming snaps of Ryan with their baby boy, as she wrote: "2021 has been the hardest year of my life by miles. And I really mean that. MILES.

"But there is someone in my life who will have found it equally as hard. This guy. He has had to witness things that no partner should ever have to. He has called ambulances. He has been inside (and outside) operating theatres for hours.”


"He has had to bring up our son as a single parent for the first month+ of his life. He has slept on the hard floor of the hospital for a week. (I didn’t realise that he would sneak off to the chapel in the middle of the night to pray)… and that’s before things even got bad.”

She went on to say that Ryan had showered her, changed her sanitary towels, injected her and brought their baby son to see her in hospital as she recovered, so they could bond.

She finished her post to Ryan with: “You are my rock and I’m so sorry for what you’ve been through. 2022 better be our year!! I will do my best to be strong for u two."
