Paloma has opened up about having a miscarriage before getting pregnant for a second time.
She said: ‘Last year I was trying again and it was strange because once my daughter turned 18 months I suddenly was like: ‘I want another one. This is the best.’
“Then I had a miscarriage and it’s sort of an ongoing thing. It’s tense. It’s not very sexy.
“I have a scar that isn’t healing properly from my caesarian so it’s creating a bit of a toxic atmosphere which is also quite hard.”
