Kelly Brook reveals why shell never have kids after her tragic miscarriages

Kelly Brook has opened up about how she feels about having a family.

The 39-year-old has suffered two miscarriages before - one at five months pregnant in 2011 and another later that year, both with her former fiance Thom Evans.

She told Fabulous magazine, ''I tried to have a baby but it didn't work. You can feel quite a bit of failure if you go through miscarriage or feel that it's quite unfair, but as much as it was a real loss and a difficult time, I got through it.''

The miscarriage made her ask herself some questions - like did she want to have children at all?

She said, ''I've sat down and asked myself: 'Do I really want to have children? Is this something I really want to do?' And I've realised it's not something I've always wanted and I'm fine with it. It's sad that it happened and obviously I wish it hadn't gone that way, but there is life after that.''

She continued, ''I can barely get myself out the front door, let alone do a school run. Even my mum said to me at one point: 'Having kids? What were you thinking?' And I don't really know. I don't think I was thinking. If I'd really thought about it, maybe I wouldn't have even got pregnant. But as a woman you're expected to go through everything aren't you.''

Kelly, who has been with Italian model Jeremy Parisi since 2015, wrote about her heartbreaking experience in her 2014 autobiography.

She wrote, ''After the miscarriage Thom and I decided it was time to make a fresh start...Thom proposed. He'd bought a beautiful ring. I immediately said yes. Later I went to see my doctor, who said, 'The best way to get over this is to try and get pregnant again'.''

She continued, ''So Thom and I weren't careful, and just before Christmas 2011, I got pregnant again. The look on Thom's face said it all. I think he was terrified...I had another miscarriage after a few weeks.''

The pair split the following year and Thom moved to LA for his modelling career.

We applaud Kelly for her honesty about a subject that can be tricky to talk about.
