Kelly Brook has spoken out for the first time about losing her baby five months into her pregnancy
Kelly Brook has spoken out for the first time about losing her baby five months into her pregnancy, revealing that she felt an overwhelming ’emptiness, sadness, guilt and loss.’
The model, 31, who miscarried in May, says she’s still struggling to come to terms with the loss.
Kelly told The Sunday Times Style Magazine: ‘One moment you don’t think about it, the next you’re crying hysterically.’
‘There are moments of total sadness and devastation, and moments of relief too. But you also have to remember that it’s life. Stuff like that happens.’
It was her first pregnancy with rugby player boyfriend Thom Evans, 26, who she started dating in December last year. The couple hadn’t been together long when she fell pregnant and Kelly admitted: ‘Having children wasn’t on my radar’.
‘We were very grown-up about it,’ said Kelly, ‘we just approached the pregnancy in the best way we could. As two people who didn’t know each other very well at all!’
But Kelly was admitted to hospital in May and later lost her baby girl.
Kelly says that she’s spent the last few months keeping a low profile at her home in Kent as the couple came to terms with what had happened.
Now, she insists, she and Thom are stronger than ever: ‘We’ve become like best friends who love each other a lot,’ she told the magazine and they’ve recently been on dates to Take That and Wimbledon.
Kelly hasn’t ruled out a family in the future either: ‘Some time in the next couple of years I’d love to have children.’
