The TV star and Britains Got Talent judge has sorrowfully lost her baby.
At seven months pregnant, Amanda Holden was reportedly taken into hospital after the baby seemed to have stopped moving. On Tuesday last week, West Middlesex Hospital Isleworth confirmed that the baby was stillborn, a deeply devastating loss for Amanda and her husband, Chris Hughes, who had a miscarriage last year and are proud parents to their beautiful daughter, Lexi.
Whilst Amanda and Chris grieve for their loss, there are already rumours that Amanda will return to judge the BGT show. The audition rounds of the show have already been filmed and Newspapers are already beginning to print reports about her with The Sun printing:
“Amanda Holden will return to Britain’s Got Talent despite the loss of her unborn Son.”
So whilst the couple come to terms with their loss and Doctors investigate to determine the cause, friends and celebrities alike have posted hundreds of messages of support with pregnant friend and mother of one, Myleene Klass, tweeting:
“I’m so very sorry. Please God watch over your family and your little angel in Heaven.”
Pregnant Emma Bunton, and James Corden whose fiancee is also pregnant also, were a few more offering condolences and support. It should be such a personal time after a miscarriage or stillbirth, so have the celebs overdone the tweets? We suppose that public support shouldn’t be slated just yet…
Amanda and Chris had with-held confirmation that they were pregnant until only 4 weeks ago, and must have felt that she was over the most dangerous first trimester, and nearly past the second at 6 months.
Whilst such a traumatic time it is, and how difficult it will be to return to our screens, we’re sure that we’ll see Amanda back to work soon.
