Lisa Faulkner has opened up about her struggles with conceiving with her ex-husband.
The former EastEnders actor spoke to The Times magazine about how she wanted a baby during her marriage to Chris Coghill.
The 46-year-old went on to adopt her daughter Billie after she couldn't fall pregnant.
Lisa also went through three and a half rounds of IVF when she was 33-years-old before she became a mum to Billie.
She said, ''I am really happy that I am infertile because I wouldn't have got Billie without it.''
She continued, ''But I don't think that yearning to be pregnant will ever completely go until I hit the menopause and I can't physically have children anymore."
Lisa has got a second chance at love, after meeting TV chef John Torode when she went on Celebrity MasterChef in 2010.
The pair revealed that they were engaged in January after John got down on one knee on Christmas Day.
Lisa took to Instagram to announce the happy news.
She wrote, ''My gorgeous John completely surprised me on Christmas Day and asked me to marry him! After waiting to tell our family when we got home we then had a few days just grinning at each other!! I'm so very happy to share our lovely news with you.''
She continued, ''Happy 2019 it's going to be quite a year and I'm going to embrace every minute of it. All you need is love. Love is all you need.''
We applaud how open Lisa is about IVF and the struggle to conceive -as it affects so many women every day.
