Harper Jones Wood’s entry into the world on May 4 wasn’t easy, but she is going from strength to strength a week later.

It was Mother’s Day when Sam Wood shared an Instagram post to break the news of his third daughter’s birth.

The love-filled post warmed fans’ hearts with pictures of Snezana cradling her baby.

But in the caption, the former Bachelor told the story of the complicated birth.

“30 minutes after this photo was taken. Snez became sick. Really sick and before we knew it Harper was off to the special care unit and Mum was into ICU,” explained Sam.

He continued on to gush over Snez’s strength when Harper was taken away for treatment, “Of course in true Snez Mum fashion her only thoughts were for her little baby, and it was breaking her heart that she couldn’t hold her.”

Sam commented highly on the staff at the hospital for their incredible work.

“After finding an infection that both Snez and Harper had picked up and some incredible care from the nurses and doctors, they were reunited yesterday and both doing well,” he wrote.

They couldn’t be happier with their brood of six.

Sam and Snez were already parents to Willow, born in 2017, and Charlie in 2019.

The former reality star is also mum to Eve from a previous relationship, and Sam has an active role as her stepdad.

They confirmed their pregnancy news in November 2021 on Instagram when Snez posted two photos of her burgeoning bump.

“❤️Filled with joy to share that we are expecting another little girl. Baby number 4 ❤️,” Snez captioned the post.

While the family continue to dote over their little one in the hospital, here is a look back at their first week with Harper.

Sam mused over how profound the love is between mother and child during his birth announcement.

“As a Dad I love my girls more than anything in this world but there truly is no bond like that of Mother and child,” he wrote.

Snez gave birth just before Mother’s Day, and her three girls, Willow, Eve, and Charlie, visited her at the hospital.

“The girls terrorising Mum in her hospital room for Mothers Day this morning,” recalled Sam while reflecting on the family moment.
