TOWIE star Amy Childs has shared some seriously OMG details about the birth of her daughter...

Former TOWIE star Amy Childs and her partner Bradley Wright welcomed her first child into the world last month, and now the yummy mummy has revealed the unusual thing she did during labour.

Announcing the arrival of her daughter in an Instagram post, the reality star wrote: "Welcome to the world my beautiful daughter."

Since the announcement, the 26-year-old has described her labour as "bloody painful" in her new! magazine column.

She added: "My labour was so long and hard – it was 27 hours. I did most of it without pain relief, but I had to have an epidural in the end as it was all too much."

And now the gorgeous mum has now revealed the extreme lengths she went to look fabulous before meeting her daughter.

Talking to OK! magazine, Amy admitted: "I had a blow dry during my labour! My aunt Sarah, who is a mobile hairdresser, came and did my hair.

"It was her day off but she knew she'd be on call! I'd told mum I wanted her to take photos when the baby was put on my chest for the first time."

Amy - who said that labour was so "terrifying" she actually thought she would die - also finally unveiled her daughter's name – Polly Childs-Wright.

Although her and Bradley were both keen on the names India and Elsie, Amy explained that after meeting their little one they realised that those names didn’t suit her, so opted for something more traditional instead.

She told the publication: "We liked the traditional names. Brad suggested Polly first. It's a bit unusual."

We totally approve!
