Amanda Holden has tragically miscarried her baby son seven months in to her pregnancy.
Celebrities rallied round the Britain’s Got Talent judge, 39, after her spokesperson confirmed last night that she had lost her baby.
It is a double tragedy for Amanda and her husband Chris Hughes, 38, after she suffered a miscarriage last year.
Emma Bunton, Holly Willoughby and Myleene Klass, who are all currently pregnant, sent the couple messages of support.
Dancing On Ice judge Emma posted on Twitter: “Absolutely devastated for Amanda Holden and Chris. Thinking of them and sending our prayers at this very sad time.”
Holly wrote: “Sending you love” while Myleene tweeted: “I’m so very sorry. Please God, watch over your family and your little angel in heaven.”
Amanda’s former BGT colleague Piers Morgan posted: “So desperately sad for my special friend Amanda Holden – sending her and Chris my love and prayers at this horrible time.”
He later added: “Thanks for all your messages for Amanda and Chris, they will really appreciate it. They’re both absolutely devastated, feel so sad for them.”
Lorriane Kelly, Davina McCall and James Holden, whose fiancée Julia Carey is pregnant, also posted their condolences.
Amanda’s spokesperson Alison Griffin said yesterday: “They are utterly devastated. Amanda has been closely monitored throughout her pregnancy and it is not known yet what went wrong.
“Both Chris and Amanda would like to thank the midwives and staff at the Queen Mary Maternity unit at West Middlesex Hospital for their tremendous support.”
Amanda was submitted to West Middlesex Hospital in Isleworth, West London, last Tuesday after complaining she had not felt the baby move for 24 hours. There was nothing doctors could do to save his life.
She announced her pregnancy just one month ago, admitting she had wanted to wait six months after miscarrying her baby last year.
