“Snez had to take Harper to the Royal Children’s Hospital last night at 10:30pm. She got home with Harper and Evie at 5:45am,” he whispered on his Instagram story.

Giving everybody an intimate look into their family life, the star then turned his camera to reveal Snezana and baby Harper fast asleep in bed.

“Have a look at this, the most beautiful thing,” he gushed.


The fitness coach then explained that Harper had caught an infection from her siblings Charlie and Willow.

“Now little Harper’s got it. Just waiting to get her blood test back,” he said with a big sigh.

“Being tested at the moment,” he admitted.

This comes after the golden Bachelor couple’s constant struggle with Harper’s health issues, after the baby was born a month early.

Snezana wrote a sweet tribute to her husband on Instagram, saying: “Our little Harper had an infection and mama here sepsis, but you never told me or showed me how serious it was or how worried you were.

“You stayed calm which kept me calm. I asked you to stay with Harper till she was ok, and you did, then you came across to the hospital I was taken to, to make sure I was okay.”

Sam documented the moment that his wife and baby Harper were reunited after recovering, sharing the ‘beautiful’ video on Instagram.

“You really are the strongest and most beautiful person I know, and like you, thank god the force is strong in little Harper,” he wrote.
