Tv - Amanda Holden Had Therapy After Stillbirth

British Tv star Amanda Holden needed therapy to help her deal with her heartbreak following the loss of her second child in 2011.

The actress was seven months into her second pregnancy when her baby boy with husband Chris Hughes was stillborn in February, 2011, and now she has opened up about her grieving process.

She tells Good Housekeeping magazine, "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...

"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."

Holden, 42, has since welcomed a little girl named Hollie, now 18 months, and admits she would like to add another child to her brood, which also includes her seven-year-old daughter Lexi.

She adds, "Probably - but only if I knew for sure there would be a successful outcome. I know everyone loves their children, but Hollie is the most loving thing. I tell everyone to have a baby. Forget your career - you can do it at the same time."
