Erin McNaught has opened up about suffering a miscarriage.
The model, 34, appeared on The Morning Show on December 13 and revealed she miscarried last month after being pregnant with her second baby.
McNaught, who’s married to rapper Example (Elliot John Gleave), described her loss as ‘heartbreaking’, but said the couple still have plans to try for another child in the future.
“We definitely want another baby,'” she said.
“I sadly had a miscarriage last month, which is, we're totally fine, it's just one of those things that's unfortunately really, really common,” she shared.
While the couple shared the sad experience, McNaught she hopes that speaking openly about her family’s loss will encourage others to do the same.
“For me, I found solace in knowing how common it was, because once I got talking, you realise just how many people are affected by it,” she said.
“If I could find solace in that and I think if more people spoke about it, then it might not be as tough for people to go through it.”
The Australian model and rapper Example, also 34, share two-year-old son Evander Maxwell.
