Jamie and Rebekah Vardy rush baby son Finley to hospital after he developed shingles on his head

The couple welcomed little Finley into the world on January 8.

But Jamie and Rebekah Vardy had a health scare when their infant son got shingles on Saturday.

Finley was taken to Leicester Royal Infirmary when his parents, 30 and 35, noticed a rash developing on his head

Hospital staff treated the four-month-old, who is now getting better.

Rebekah tweeted on Sunday: ‘Thank you so much to the staff at Leicester Royal Infirmary for taking such good care of us yesterday! A credit to the NHS.’

One Twitter user who claimed to have treated Finley over the weekend replied to her post

Rebekah’s representative told MailOnline: ‘Rebekah and Jamie spent Saturday evening at the hospital with Finley as a worrying looking rash appeared on his head late on Saturday afternoon.

‘He was promptly diagnosed with shingles by hospital staff at Leicester Royal Infirmary, they were wonderful and acted quickly to treat little Finley.

‘He’s on the mend and the family are very grateful to all of the hospital staff who helped them.’

When Jamie was born, Rebekah had to be induced as his head was so low.

She told OK! Magazine: ‘The pain of labour was so intense – I nearly broke Jamie’s fingers!’

The brunette beauty – who is already mother to Megan, 11, Taylor, six, and Sofia, two – eventually had to have water’s broken by doctors.

The WAG won praise from her fans when she posted a picture of her ‘mummy tummy’ on Instagram just weeks after giving birth.

She wrote: ‘Our bodies go through so many changes growing a baby, it’s not easy it’s tough on women!

‘Learn to love the wrinkly skin, the stretch marks, the deflated once perky boobs… Perfection doesn’t exist… it’s just an illusion! Imperfection is beautiful!
