Opening up to OK! magazine, the TV star said that she was rushed to hospital after noticing bleeding in the night and that doctors later confirmed that she had been expecting identical twins but that one of them died due to a relatively common occurrence called ‘vanishing twin syndrome’.
‘[The doctor] said she could only see one of the embryos, so it was either behind the other or I had lost it. I told her about the bleeding and she said that I probably had lost it.’
‘The doctor did confirm the twins had been identical,’ she continued. ‘That was so sad for me to hear. I kept thinking this one is going to come out and they would have looked exactly the same.’
‘I grieved for about three months,’ added the new mum. ‘I felt like I had gone into a hole, like I had lost a child.’
Congratulations to Chloe and Danny on their new baby.
