Malin Andersson has revealed she has tragically suffered a miscarriage.
The Love Island series two star, 29, posted a picture of two pregnancy tests on her Instagram, accompanied by a lengthy caption explaining why she had been quiet on social media recently.
"Sometimes I need to take time to deal with my life privately, as my life is so public, I needed to take time out," Malin explained.
"The past few months haven't been easy for me, but there is also something else I would like to address.
"You all know that I am very transparent about taboo subjects, and I like to shed light on things that are often not spoken about and especially trauma I have experienced myself.
"I found out I was pregnant - and I then soon after miscarried."
Referring to the heart-breaking death of her daughter Consy in 2019, who died shortly after being born seven weeks premature, Malin continued: "It pains me to talk about this in detail right now due to what happened to Consy...
"But I want you all to know that miscarriage doesn't discriminate and it can happen to anyone. Even when you think you have gone through enough.
"I'll be fine - my strength never ceases to amaze me sometimes but I felt that I needed to share this with you all as I've never been one to hold anything back - especially when I know it can help someone else. "
Both friends and fans of the social media personality were quick to praise the star for her remarkable strength and candour during a deeply personal and understandably upsetting time.
Fellow Love Island star Anna Vakili wrote: "So sorry Malin. You're so strong. Sending lots of love."
Reality TV star Jake Quickenden added: "So sorry mate," before adding a loveheart emoji.
Meanwhile, one fan wrote: "Most amazing confident and REAL person on here! Truly someone to admire and look up to. So sorry for your loss, you're an amazing person, sending love."
A second sympathised: "It is incredibly heartbreaking I've been there as have you but I promise it makes you stronger, I know I'm just a random stranger but my DMs are always open to anyone who needs a chat."
Malin has previously spoken candidly about daughter Consy's death two years ago.
At just 4lbs and 8oz's, Consy was too small for treatment for a rare heart defect, with Malin telling OK! Magazine that all they could do is "pray for a miracle" before Consy passed away in January.
Malin, who split with Consy's father Tom Kemp not long after her tragic death, has since been vocal about the effect the devastating loss had on her.
We're sending you all our love, Malin.
