'Britain's Got Talent' judge Amanda Holden says public support helped get her through the tragic loss of her unborn son in February
Amanda Holden says public support helped get her through the tragic loss of her unborn son.
The 'Britain's Got Talent' judge lost her baby son in February, seven months into her pregnancy, and while she admits it was a devastating time, she and husband Chris Hughes were overwhelmed with the messages they received.
Amanda - who has a five-year-old daughter, Lexi, with Chris - said: "I'm a naturally really optimistic girl and I can - my husband and I kind of, we're not dramatic people and although what's happened is obviously horrifying, there's no reason why we don't have.you know, we can go on and have more children and our future's bright and you have to turn negatives into positives, and try and see everything as a blessing and that's exactly what we've done."
"The public support has been amazing, I've had unbelievable support and it truly has got us both through it, really."
Despite her tragic loss, Amanda is throwing herself into her career and as well as appearing on 'Britain's Got Talent', she is also appearing as Princess Fiona in the West End version of 'Shrek' but admits she feels "guilty" about having so much fun.
She admitted on TV show 'Lorraine': "I'm just having the best fun, with the most amazing cast. Everyone's lovely, supportive, and I feel guilty for being so happy and having such a good time every day, it's great."
