TV judge and actress Amanda Holden has spoken about her traumatic birth and revealed she was "moments from death" after her heart stopped for 40 seconds.

The star recently gave birth to her second daughter, Hollie, and said she now has the "perfect family", but during the caesarean section Amanda lost more than 13 litres of blood.

She told The Sun it was "touch and go" whether she would live through the birth and after the experience her and husband, Chris Hughes, have decided to not have any more children.

Amanda, 41, said: "Two kids is the perfect number for me. I think we will stop at two. I think that this is what we're supposed to have. Maybe we will get some rabbits instead."

In 2010 the Britain's Got Talent judge also suffered a miscarriage and lost her son at four months.

She added: "If I'd met Chris earlier then I probably would have wanted more children.

"But we had a fabulous long courtship, nice meals out and brilliant holidays and now we've got two beautiful children.

"We will never forget our little boy obviously. I said just after Hollie was born that our family is complete and I mean that. I feel so lucky that we've got where we are."
