Jorgie Porter has opened up about the difficulties of motherhood but how she will 'always be thankful' after her miscarriage.
The 35-year-old - best known for her role as Theresa McQueen in Hollyoaks - miscarried quadruplets at around 14 weeks in 2021.
The actor has since spoken out about her experience of motherhood so far and the lasting impact her miscarriage continues to have on her.
Jorgie - who appeared on ITV's Dancing on Ice as well as I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! - admitted being a mother is the 'hardest thing' she's 'ever done' in an interview with the Mirror.
And she hasn't shied away from being honest about the experience on social media either, sharing a candid photograph to Instagram of herself and Forest in a toilet cubicle.
The 35-year-old said: "Thinking my page was looking a little too perfect so here's a bit of insta reality. This is me praying to the gods for a way to get out of the toilet cubicle in one piece!
"Hangry hangry baby and a poonami explosion all over me, yes all over me!
"I had to call for reinforcements or I would still be sat there now. Parents tell me this has happened to you too??"
Despite how 'relentless' it is being a mum, Jorgie will 'always, always be thankful [she is] a mum, no matter what because of what happened'.
She told the Mirror: "It’s given me the gratitude to take each day as it comes and enjoy my family."
Becoming a mother has also meant there's been a lot of changes to Jorgie's lifestyle, such as a significant decrease in the amount of 'party days and nights'.
But the actor resolved: "I couldn’t be happier about it. I would never want to be that girl again, the one without a care beyond clothes shopping and having a good time. I loved my younger, frivolous years but that’s not me now."
Despite being over the moon with being a mum to Forest, Jorgie still feels the weight of her miscarriage.
She explained: "My miscarriage was the hardest thing I’ve had to go through in my life.
"None of the doctors knew why it happened. I had four times the hormones, and then afterwards, the feeling of being pregnant never went away."
The actor resolved: "I don’t think I can ever move away from what happened. It’s about progression. If I talk about Forest it’s important I don’t ignore what happened. If it had not happened, I wouldn’t be mum to Forest.
"When he’s older I’ll definitely tell him about our lost babies."
