Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers has shared that his new baby son Oakley is back in hospital, just weeks after the newborn was allowed home earlier this month.
The 35-year-old dad of three previously revealed that he would require surgery after being born with health complications, and that his ‘little soldier’ faced a ‘long road ahead’.
Although operations were due to take place over the next two years, the retired mixed marital artist revealed that this first operation so soon had been ‘unexpected’.
