A spokesman for the star confirmed the heartbreaking news that Amanda lost her baby, adding medics do not yet know what went wrong
A spokesman for Amanda Holden yesterday confirmed the heartbreaking news that the actress has lost her baby boy, adding doctors still do not know what went wrong.
It’s thought Amanda – who was seven months pregnant with husband Chris Hughes’ child - was rushed to West Middlesex hospital last week, after the baby stopped moving.
It was sadly later stillborn.
A spokesman for the couple released a statement confirming the tragic news and thanking hospital staff for their support, but added they still don’t know what went wrong.
‘They are utterly devastated,’ an official statement read.
‘Amanda had been closely monitored throughout her pregnancy and it is not yet known what went wrong.
‘Both Chris and Amanda would like to thank the midwives and staff at The Queen Mary Maternity unit at West Middlesex Hospital Isleworth for their tremendous support.’
Support for the pair has flooded in, with pregnant stars Myleene Klass and Emma Bunton both taking to Twitter to send their love.
'My sweetheart. I'm so very sorry. Please God, watch over your family and your little angel in heaven,’ wrote Myleene, while Emma added: 'Absolutely devastated for Amanda Holden and Chris. Thinking of them and sending our prayers at this very sad time.'
This is the second child the couple has lost. Earlier this year, Amanda revealed had already suffered a miscarriage after falling pregnant in 2010.
