What struggles has Caprice Bourret been through?

Caprice previously opened up about her "miracle sons" after meeting her partner US multimillionaire financier Ty Comfort at the age of 39 through a mutual friend.

They struggled to start a family, suffering a miscarriage followed by several failed rounds of IVF.

At the time, Caprice revealed, 'The doctors told me to forget getting pregnant. They discovered that the lining of my womb is so thin that no embryo could attach and grow. I was devastated.'

Ty found a fertility agency in the States where they hired a surrogate to carry and give birth to their child.

Shortly after their 32-year-old surrogate became pregnant with two of their embryos, Caprice realised she was also carrying a child.
