Pregnant Izzy Judd opens up about fertility heartbreak and how IVF helped her and Harry Judd finally conceive … –

McFly 's Harry Judd and his wife Izzy Judd faced utter heartbreak when their first much-longed for pregnancy resulted in a miscarriage.

Now Izzy is pregnant again and the couple are looking forward to welcoming their new addition into the family later this autumn.

But the celebrity mum has opened up about the loneliness of infertility and how hard both she and Harry struggled in their bid to become parents.

Speaking to ITV's Lorraine this morning, Izzy revealed how it had been her dream to be a mum ever since she was little.

"We thought we would get pregnant after we got married and it didn't work out that way, and what followed were very, very lonely months," she recalled.

"And it's a very long journey and a monthly cycle that I'm sure a lot of women will relate to. And so in the end we did turn to IVF and I'm so grateful that we did."

In a heartbreakingly cruel twist of fate, Harry and Izzy's first attempt at IVF resulted in the loss of the baby something Izzy said was "utterly devastating" and cast a shadow over her second, successful attempt.

"I think when you suffer a miscarriage, it takes away elements of the joy you should experience, because you're so nervous," she said.

"For me I felt, 'Oh goodness, not only have I got problems conceiving, can I hold onto a baby?' And that terrified me. And I had to give myself time before I went back for the next round, to truly grieve over what I'd actually just lost."

But when the hopeful couple saw their little Lola on the ultrasound, they both burst into floods of tears and when their baby was born, Izzy said she "would have waited forever" to meet her.

Izzy isn't the only celebrity mum to open up about the heartbreak of miscarriage recently Kym Marsh dedicated her British Soap Award to stillborn son Archie earlier this month and had the audience in tears.

It came after Harry announced that he and Izzy were expecting their second child in April 2017.

The musician took to social media to reveal that Izzy is expecting once more.

And what's more amazing, she conceived naturally after the pair used IVF to have their first child.

Harry shared an adorable picture of Izzy, wearing a pair of denim dungarees, sat on the floor holding her bump.

Little Lola copied her mum down to her exact pose, and even wore a matching outfit.

Harry posted the pic on Instagram, writing: "Lola, where's baby?"

Izzy also announced the news, writing on her page: "Harry, Lola and I are so happy to share our news. After having IVF to conceive Lola people used to say to me you'll probably fall pregnant naturally next time.

"I wondered how it would ever be that simple after all the difficulties we have previously faced. I never believed we would be lucky enough, but whilst writing Dare to Dream this little miracle happened. I want to give others hope that amazing things can happen."

Previously, the 31-year-old drummer admitted he wants a "minimum" of three kids.

He said: "Izzy used to say she wanted three or four children and I was like, 'No way.' Now Izzy is like, 'Just one more' and I'm saying minimum three. Being a dad just feels right. It feels quite natural. It is the best thing ever."

Izzy tragically suffered a miscarriage before falling pregnant with Lola with the help of IVF after struggling to conceive naturally and Harry admits it is tough for his wife to talk about.

He said: "It really is so much harder for Izzy to go through. It's a very dark place. During the whole thing, my mum said to me, 'You've been very lucky in life but this time you may have to be a bit more patient.' But I still feel very lucky."

Whilst Izzy added: "It's such a personal thing to talk about. But we've had some gorgeous feedback and I've heard from women who said they were going through IVF and are now pregnant."

Lorraine continues weekdays at 8.30am on ITV.
