It’s not the first time she’s been hospitalised with hyperemesis gravidarum, which is the same serious form of morning sickness Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton had in all three pregnancies. Amy posted a pic of her in hospital last month, apologising for having to reschedule her shows.

“Babyโ€™s fine but everyone who says the 2nd trimester is better is not telling the full story. Iโ€™ve been even more ill this trimester. I have hyperemesis and it blows. Very lucky to be pregnant but this is some bullsh*t! Sending so much love to the doctors and nurses taking great care of me and Tati! They are cool as hell! And Texas I am really really sorry and Iโ€™ll be out there as soon as Iโ€™m better.”

She also shared a video of herself throwing up in a public restroom just before she took to the stage for another show. There’s no doubt this tough mumma-to-be is keeping it real.
