‘Relieved the nausea and constant tiredness has passed and feeling more myself again even if there are some emotions bouncing about & weird food cravings!… Currently taking down 6 butter soaked, Marmite crumpets a day!

‘2020 has been a real personal rollercoaster with some huge ups and some lows. We are so excited, happy and thankful for what is to come! Here’s to 2021’.
Meanwhile, daughter India beamed as she held up a selection of ultrasound scans.
In October, Binky revealed she suffered a miscarriage earlier this year, taking to Instagram to post an emotional message to her followers.
The TV personality was expecting with fiancé Max but sadly miscarried at the 12 week mark, leaving the couple ‘heartbroken’.
She wrote: ‘I’ve thought long and hard about doing this post, but I felt that if I can pass on any warmth, comfort or help to anybody in the same position – well that would be great. It’s only fair that I share some of my ‘downs’ as well as my ‘up’ moments.
Sweet! On his own Instagram page, Max wrote: ‘I’m super excited that this little nutter is going to be a big sister in 2021
‘Today would have been my 18 week mark, but sadly we had an early miscarriage just before 12 weeks. Not only was this heartbreaking for us, but it also came as such a shock to me.
‘I hadn’t realised until then how blessed I was with having such a relatively straight forward pregnancy with India – I’ll admit I was naive enough to assume the next one would be as straightforward, but I had two early scans as I was concerned I was bleeding.
‘They found a very strong heartbeat. However, on the third scan I was told “I’m afraid there’s no heartbeat”.I was told by my doctor that 1 in 4 pregnancies miscarry (not that statistics make it any easier!)
‘With 82% of my following being women – that means roughly 237,800 women ‘following’ me could (or have) experienced the same, which is just so sad.
‘When speaking to a few close friends about our situation, we learned that some of them too have had miscarriages in the past.
‘Heartbroken’: Binky recently revealed she suffered a miscarriage earlier this year
Support: Binky’s MIC co-star Louise Thompson replied with a string of hearts
‘I asked them why they’ve never said anything, and they just said they felt they couldn’t, or shouldn’t talk about it. Almost like it’s a taboo subject, which is heartbreaking.
‘If you have been through this, I hope you are giving yourself time to mentally and physically heal and do what you need.
‘I keep reminding myself that there was nothing I could have done, and perhaps this was nature’s way of saying that for whatever reason, this little soul wasn’t ready for the world. Sending so so much love .
‘I later learned that @miscarriageassociation is available to help anyone who has/is experiencing this.
‘It’s a national charity that provides support and information for anyone who’s affected by miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy, this includes both women and men.
‘You can call their helpline or talk to them on live chat or even message them on Instagram, and they will do whatever they can to help you through.’
Binky gave birth to India in June 2017 and split from JP just over a year later in September 2018, citing that it was ‘unfair’ on India for the couple to stay together.
Binky and Max, who is managing director at a global executive search and consulting firm, have been in a relationship since January 2019 after meeting at countryside private members’ club Soho Farmhouse.
The happy couple announced that they are engaged to be married after 19 months of dating in September.
She revealed the good news via Instagram as she shared a picture of her kissing the businessman while holding up her hand to show off the sparkling diamond ring.
Gushing about the proposal, which took place after he asked her daughter, for permission to pop the question, she wrote: ‘The easiest ‘Yes’ EVER!’
