"2020 is the gift that keeps on giving. Bronchitis for this little one. Thankfully have amazing nurses and doctors looking after her," Giumelli wrote on Instagram.

"She's a trooper. The last month has had its challenges that's for sure.

"Tom's not allowed in the room until our COVID test comes back but thankfully had coffee dropped off outside my door this morning."

The couple, who also share a one-year-old daughter Sophie, welcomed the birth of their second child at 36 weeks last month.

Giumelli, 28, recently said motherhood has been a struggle the second time around.

"Tears. Lots and lots of tears. Tears of happiness, from feeling overwhelmed, frustration and anger," she wrote days after her premature birth.

It comes after Giumelli, Burgess and Sophie were all struck down with gastro last month.

"As soon as we felt we were settled, Sophie gets hit with gastro (and bounces back like a champ) then 5 days post-partum I catch the gastro bug which is extremely exhausting on top of already being exhausted, I didn't think I had the mental capacity to take on much more and then Tom got hit with it too," Giumelli shared.

The couple got engaged on New Year's Eve after three years of dating.
