‘He’s completely recovered now’: Natasha Bedingfield says her son Solomon, 2, is back to full health after major surgeries on deadly brain abscess
Natasha Bedingfield has talked about her two-year-old son’s recovery from brain surgery.
Last December, the singer, 38, revealed her son, Solomon, was undergoing surgery for a brain infection after being hospitalised three weeks prior.
Six months on, Natasha and her husband Matt Robinson said they were already accustomed to wearing face masks having spent five weeks wearing them in hospital while Solomon underwent the multiple operations.

In an interview with People magazine, the Unwritten singer spoke about family life in lockdown.
‘We have a unique experience because we were in hospital just two months before Covid because Solo had a brain abscess and had to have some surgeries,’ she said.
‘He’s completely recovered now, but we spent a whole five weeks in a tiny little hospital room wearing masks, so we kind of got a head start on what everyone’s going through.

‘He has an area of infection that somehow found its way into the brain, we are so grateful though that there is treatment for what Solo is experiencing and it is straight forward and has worked many times.’
Natasha also shared her gratitude to the health professionals who ‘saved our son’s life’.
The These Words singer said even if Solomon, who is going through the ‘terrible twos’, has a tantrum, she is still grateful that she is just able to spend time with him.
The Single Words hitmaker added she was should be glad to ‘feel the luxury of being frustrated’ after fearing the worst for her son’s health last year.

In an Instagram post from December, Natasha shared a series of pictures showing a fragile Solomon hooked up to tubes in hospital while being cradled by his mother.
She wrote at the time: ‘Feeling gutted but also thank God that we live in a time of MRI where we are able to see into our own minds and for doctors who are wise enough to keep asking questions.
‘He has an area of infection that somehow found its way into the brain. We are so grateful though that there is treatment for what Solo is experiencing and it is straight forward and has worked many times.’

Full recovery: The Unwritten singer said that Solomon has completely recovered from what could have been a life-threatening condition
Natasha said Solomon is creative and loves joining in when she sings to him and the pair have enjoyed creating music in lockdown.
The Grammy-nominated singer’s new song, ‘Together In This’ from the Jungle Beat: The Movie soundtrack, is inspired by the film’s themes of togetherness and friendship.
And Natasha says it’s also a reflection of the current state of the world and makes a comment about finding ways for people to unite and connect at a divided time.
Thankful: She said: ‘We have such an appreciation for both medical health professionals and the length that they go to help people be healthy’
The song was written by the singer’s friend Jonas Myrin who is quarantining with her family.
Natasha’s most famous song from 2005, Unwritten, has its 15th anniversary this year and she can’t believe how quickly time has passed.
She said she finds it ‘trippy’ when she meets people who were children when the song came out but are now grown up and look the same age as her.
