Former Strictly Come Dancing professional Natalie Lowe, 39, has gone into detail about her heartbreak after experiencing two miscarriages before welcoming her son, Jack, with husband James Knibbs last year. The Australian dancer admitted her second miscarriage “ruined” her and she “couldn’t escape”.
Completely ruined me.
Natalie, who starred on Strictly between 2009 and 2016, opened up about her heartbreaking road into parenthood in a new interview with The Sun.
Natalie began by revealing she first found out she was pregnant three weeks before she married James in January 2018.
The dancer divulged: “I was like, ‘Oh my god, I’m actually in Australia. I can tell my mum something for the first time instead of over the phone, I’m having my baby, I’m gonna be pregnant for my wedding and then my next chapter is going to begin’.
However, the BBC star confessed: “It was just too good to be true.”

Natalie went on to explain: “It wasn’t until I got halfway home. I rang James from the airport and said, ‘Could you just book me a scan?’
“Then, when I arrived, I didn’t feel right,” she continued.
“It was probably the worst day of my life.”
The ex Strictly pro added: “I’m not sure which was worse, hearing the news, or how it was done. The lady who told me, I felt like it was her two millionth time.

“She said that it wasn’t meant to be. It was just a bit of a double whammy.”
The couple discovered they were expecting for the second time when they went to South Africa for their delayed honeymoon.
However, Natalie suffered from a miscarriage a second time, as she recalled: “The second time just completely ruined me.
“There’s kind of no escape from that. And it was like history repeating itself. Again, I just put on a brave face, saying ‘I can do this.'”
