‘It was nice to hang out with people and not talk about it. But I do want to talk about it because it’s such a massive thing.
‘Yes, I wasn’t trying. Yes, it’s not ideal timing. But at the same time, I was like, “I’m in a committed relationship, this is a surprise earlier than we would have liked it to be, but that’s fine.”
‘And then I had really, really bad morning sickness, like awful morning sickness. And then I woke up one day and the morning sickness was completely gone and I was like, “this is weird”. Then I started feeling really normal.’
‘I hadn’t had any scans because you don’t have a scan until you’re further along.’
The blonde beauty then explained how she booked an early scan ‘just to make sure everything’s fine’, but after being asked by the doctor how far along she was meant to be he delivered the heartbreaking news.
‘I said “I’m meant to be eight weeks” and you can just kind of tell straight away. He was like “no, what’s showing in there is small, it hasn’t grown.’
Tiffany recalled: ‘I had to have an operation, and then it didn’t work, which was even worse. So then I had to take the pills, and that worked.
‘I think going through it was awful, because even though we weren’t trying, I feel like when you find out, you do become very attached to the baby.
‘You’re mourning a loss of something, a loss of something you never really had.’
