The singer and husband Daryl Sabara welcomed Riley in February this year, and she has spoken in the past about his ‘rough start’ in life.

The new mum, 27, went into more detail in an interview with Today and compared moment she couldn’t hear her son crying when he was born to a ‘horror story’.

‘It was one of those horror stories where he didn’t cry,’ she said, ‘He didn’t make noise when he came out.

‘I was like, “Why isn’t he crying?” Then they told me he was having breathing issues. It was terrifying.’

The All About That Bass singer confessed the worst part of labour for her was when he was taken out of her arms after she held him for ‘a second’ so he could examined and treated.

Riley was taken to the neonatal intensive care unit and needed a feeding tube.

Meghan went on: ‘I got to see him for one second before they took him away. That was probably the worst part.’

She added that her son is now the ‘smiliest, happiest baby’ and thriving.

The star has spoken openly about her anxiety and depression in the past, for which she takes antidepressants, and ‘made sure it was safe’ to have a low dose while pregnant.

On sharing her concerns with doctors, Meghan revealed: ‘I made sure it was safe and talked to my doctors. They told me, “If you’re happy then your body will be happy and your baby will be happy”.

‘I haven’t had any postpartum depression or anything. I think the medicine definitely helped.’
