Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn flatlined giving birth and almost died

Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn has revealed she had a "near-death experience" and flatlined giving birth.

The Oppenheim Group realtor, 33, appeared on Wednesday's episode of This Morning opposite presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

During her interview, Christine was asked about her baby son Christian and shared her story of his "traumatic birth".

Christine revealed that her water broke while filming the Netflix reality show in May, resulting in her being rushed to hospital.

The reality TV personality also confirmed that she was "10 centimetres dilated" when she arrived at the medical facility, meaning she had to undergo a "crash emergency C-section".

Christine said: "I was flatlining and my baby was flatlining.

"We both almost didn't make it so it's one of those things… I just learned to be so grateful for life and everything because that can change."

On what she'd learned from the experience, the How to be a Boss B***h author added: "I realised that time is so precious and I'm 33 years old.

"I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would have a near-death experience so in the new season, you're going to see me tell my story and be vulnerable for once and I never did that.

"I was always afraid.

"I always wanted to be strong for people but you know it was genuine, it was authentic for me to tell my story and I'm so glad that I did because I know there's so many women that went through similar situations and it's just all about trusting your intuition."

Christine later claimed that she "knew she was going into labour for two days" but said her doctor "denied her".
