Franklin went on to say that speaking on her fertility struggles was especially important to her, something she hopes will help other women who might be dealing with the same issues—and something Lahey herself admitted to dealing with when trying to conceive her first child with husband Keiran.
"I knew so many other women had gone through it as well, and there was just not enough dialogue out there about it. I think the only time we really speak about fertility, as women, is when comes to having a baby," Franklin said. "We really should be talking about it long before then."
The couple first announced they were expecting Tallulah in August 2019, with Franklin announcing the pregnancy on her app, writing: “The journey to get here hasn't been easy and this little life is the greatest gift and we feel truly blessed and grateful that we will have a little angel of our own.”
“We have both dreamt of this for a long time and whilst the last 2.5 years have been physically and emotionally challenging, there's nothing we would change as it's brought us to this beautiful moment,” she continued, calling her baby “our little miracle”.
Despite the hardships at the time, Franklin admitted it brought her Buddy closer together.
“I think that the challenges that we went through have strengthened our relationship and made us more appreciative of what’s happening," she told The Daily Telegraph at the time. We’re obviously really happy and excited at the moment, feeling very loved up.”
