London, Sep 27: British actress Amanda Holden has revealed that she needed therapy to deal with grief following the loss of her second child in 2011.
The 42-year-old was seven months into her second pregnancy when her baby boy with husband Chris Hughes was stillborn in February 2011. She was very upset and sought therapy to come to terms with it, reports contactmusic.com.
"I only very recently felt like I needed to see a therapist. I saw somebody five or six times. To know your baby might not be born alive is incomprehensible. We called him Theo. He was nearly three pounds - bigger than some babies in the prem (premature) ward...," Good Housekeeping magazine quoted Holden as saying.
"Chris and I were very private and we grieved at night. We went to bed and we talked and talked. Chris never cried. I did all the crying," she added.
Holden then welcomed her second daughter Hollie, in March 2012, and admits she would like to add another child. She also has a seven-year-old daughter Lexi.
