“Willow was at an age where she was so much more full on than when she was only 6 months old when I miscarried, she was a breezy newborn so in April I was like hell yeah I can have four of these nuggets easy! But as you know, the older they get the more and more full on they become. That’s when I realised, I couldn’t do it all. I was no longer the superwoman I thought I was. But the reality for me was, I couldn’t have an 18 month old, a newborn and continue to do all the things I had committed to career-wise in 2017.
“In the end after discussing it with Darius I chose to be selfish. And I do at times feel selfish for making that decision. Especially when there are women who struggle with falling pregnant and obviously there are those who are extremely against terminations. I continue to remind myself that it was the right choice for me, and the right choice for our family.
Knowing her post would ultimately receive some backlash, Boyd preceded it by writing “This is my story, don't judge. If you don't like it simply exit,” however critics were quick to attack.
Taking to Instagram, she addressed the criticism.
“It's gobsmacking at how people misinterpret things, I did not get an abortion because I was afraid of miscarrying again, that was not the sole reason that lead me to make that choice, I had about 10 reasons,” she wrote.
“Importantly, I terminated because it wasn't the right time in my life to have another child and it was the right decision for me and my family!
“I'm sincerely sorry that my own personal choices (that don't affect any single one of you), disgust you, I apologise that it's so disturbing and I will try to keep my legs closed as told.”
The couple, who are parents to one-year-old daughter Willow, say they would love to eventually have three children and are hoping to try again in a years time.
