Heavily pregnant Australian influencer Tammy Hembrow, 27, was rushed to hospital for stitches after being bitten by a dog on Thursday, as she awaits the birth of her third child
Tammy Hembrow was rushed to hospital on Thursday – but it wasn’t to give birth to her baby girl.
The heavily pregnant influencer revealed on her Instagram story that she was attacked by a dog and left needing stitches.
The 27-year-old Australian shared a photo of her bandaged hand and wrote: “Little update, lots of tears and spent yesterday in hospital but surprisingly not baby related.
“Had a clean out and stitches from a dog bite. Not the best day to say the least, but I’m all good, just sore.”
The mother-of-two said she was “kinda glad baby hasn’t made an appearance yet” as her injury means she “pretty much can’t do anything” with her hand.

Tammy is eagerly awaiting the birth of her third child after she hit the nine-month milestone last week.
The Saski Collection founder has been sharing regular updates of her pregnancy to her 15 million Instagram followers online.
She’s already revealed her plans to have a vaginal birth and has created a “hypnobirthing playlist” which includes “everything from Kate Bush to Johnny Cash”.
Just two days ago, the fitness star updated her followers with a post that read: “Still pregnant, just been sleeping.”
She also informed fans that her baby girl will be born with 12 fingers, due to a rare genetic disorder called Polydactyly.
In a YouTube video with fiancé Matt Poole, 33, she said: “We just saw the little baby, and the surprise was that she has 12 fingers, like me, like her mummy.”
Tammy explained that her sisters, mother and brother also had the mutation, but that her two children, Wolf, six, and Saskia, five, who she shares with ex-fiancé Reece Hawkins, 26, did not.
During an Instagram Q and A last month, one follower asked Tammy: “Will you be removing your baby’s extra fingers?”

To which she responded: “Yes no reason to keep them. I had mine removed shortly after birth.”
The mum-of-two admitted in April that she has concerns she will not love her new baby as much as Wolf and Saskia.
“Crazy to think I’ll be meeting her soon… Not gonna lie I’ve been having some of the anxious weird feelings I remember having before I welcomed Sass,” she said on Instagram.
“That feeling of how can you possibly love another soul as much as the little ones already here.
“Or the guilt that you will have to give your time and attention to another. All the emotions.”
Tammy asked her followers for their advice, and if they’d experienced anything similar.
She added: “I know all these feelings are just going to fade away as soon as she’s here. This little girl was meant for me and my heart just keeps growing.”
