Miscarriage my hardest lesson - Brook

Kelly Brook has described her miscarriage as "the hardest lesson" after losing the baby she was expecting with rugby player Thom Evans last May.

The 32-year-old model said she had "changed her life dramatically" since losing the baby girl when she was five months pregnant.

She told Top Sante magazine: "My miscarriage was a hard lesson. Before I fell pregnant, I'd been living the life of a 22-year-old - going to clubs, working hard and flying to a different country every two weeks. When I first fell pregnant, I still thought I could run around and do whatever I wanted, but my body let me know that wasn't the case. When I miscarried, I was devastated.

"It was the hardest lesson but, ultimately, a good one. I'd been running on adrenalin believing I was invincible - like so many of us do. Since the miscarriage, I've changed my life dramatically.

"I've reduced my workload and I'm eating more healthily and exercising more. I don't want to leave it much longer before having children and if I was to fall pregnant now, I'd feel ready."
