WATCH: Dad finally kisses his baby girl after doctors warned chemotherapy had made his saliva toxic

Cancer-stricken father-of-two, Craig Fountain, who was told chemotherapy made his saliva toxic, wasn't allowed to kiss his newborn baby until his treatment was completed - when she was three weeks old.

Prior to the baby baby being born, he was warned by doctors not to have sex with his pregnant wife - or even kiss her - as such physical intimacy could harm their unborn child.

Craig had been diagnosed with stage three bowel cancer in September 2018.
