I’M A Celebrity star Harry Redknapp and wife Sandra have opened up about their heartbreaking secret miscarriage for the first time.
Former hairdresser Sandra, 74, who has been married to the ex-Football manager for 55 années, fell pregnant in February 1969, but lost the baby at 12 semaines.
The couple made the devastating revelation in their joint autobiography When Harry Met Sandra.
After finishing work at the salon, Sandra told how she couldn’t get a bus home to Barking one cold winter evening.
She explained that she walked in the thick snow, but later lost feeling in her hands and feet and began to feel unwell, convinced she had suffered a miscarriage.
“Harry was away playing football when I had the miscarriage. Not many people know about it. I did think to myself, ‘Have I opened up too much?’ but if it helps someone that’s all that matters,” elle a dit d'accord! magazine.
“It’s nice to know you’re not alone.
“Back then nobody talked about it and I don’t think anyone knew how to handle it, especially men. I cried a lot until I fell pregnant again.”
Sandra fell pregnant three months later with their first son Mark, à présent 52.
It comes after Harry, 75, revealed how he feared for his wife Sandra after a serious attack of Covid left her barely able to breathe.
