Kent model Kelly Brook has revealed for the first time that she miscarried a second baby.
The Rochester-born beauty, 34, spoke of her heartbreak at losing the child just months after a first baby died at six months pregnant.
Kelly, who is now engaged to former Gladiators star David McIntosh, suffered the devastating blow with ex-boyfriend Thom Evans.
The stress of the two miscarriages is said to have led to her spilitting from the 29-year-old rugby player in 2012.
Former Thomas Aveling School pupil Kelly has previously only told her family and close friends of her ordeal.
"Apart from the physical fallout, emotionally hormones affect you much more than you think. Much more than I have ever really let on..." - Kelly Brook
But she has now opened her heart in her autobiography, being serialised in The Sun newspaper this week.
Speaking about the moment her first baby was born dead on May 6 2011, Kelly said: "They just took the baby away.
"I didn't take prints of her hands or feet or give her a name. Everyone felt very empty and upset."
Describing it as the "most painful thing", she added: "Apart from the physical fallout, emotionally hormones affect you much more than you think. Much more than I have ever really let on."
Thom proposed soon after and the pair decided to try for another baby.
Kelly fell pregnant before Christmas 2011 - but suffered another miscarriage after just a few weeks.
The pair split in November 2012 and Kelly is now set to marry 29-year-old muscle man David McIntosh, who was last week kicked out of the Celebrity Big Brother house.
