Kelly Brook says losing her unborn baby strengthened her relationship with boyfriend Thom Evans.

The model-and-actress tragically lost her baby girl five months into her pregnancy last year and while she and the former rugby player hadn't been together for very long, she knows she wouldn't have been able to get through the ordeal without him.

She said: "We had our fair share of trials and tribulations with my pregnancy. My hormones were all over the place and I didn't know if I wanted to be in a relationship, because we'd just met. It's just the last thing you think about - having a family - and then all of a sudden you find yourself with someone you don't know that well, and you're in that situation. It was a Beautiful Thing, but a really scary thing, and I think we probably saw each other at our worst.

"I owe everything to him, really. I'd do anything for him - I was a monster at some points, because your hormones are all over the place. It's bad enough when women have that time of the month, let alone going through that. I guess we're kind of lucky that we got to know each other on that level so quickly."

Although Kelly and Thom would like a family together in the future, she insists they're in no rush to try for another baby and just want to take their time being a couple.

In an interview with the new issue of Britain's Glamour magazine, she said: "We've just had such a stressful year. We're happy to take a bit of a breather, work on our projects and spend time together doing fun things. We never really had that opportunity when we first met - I was pregnant, that was it. So at the moment we're being spontaneous, loving our new place and going shopping for cute things for our house. Just being a normal couple, really."
