During her first pregnancy, Claire shared multiple updates along the way, including snaps of Emmett stroking her baby bump and posing with prams.
The couple lost a baby in July 2019, and Claire nearly lost her life.
Speaking about the tragedy in October 2020, to mark Baby Loss Awareness Week, Claire said: ‘It’s baby loss awareness week and although I wasn’t quiet about our loss privately, I didn’t share it with the public, mainly I didn’t have the words at that time & perhaps I still don’t but if this post helps one family or person out there, perhaps my words were worth the wait…or not.’
