The star recently shared about her abortion when she was 4 ½ months pregnant back in 2012 and delivered her child at home prior to attending National Television Awards.
Talking about the trauma in her podcast this week she said: “I’ve had some shocking things happen to me, I’m not sure I’ve spoken about this before.”
“But I actually gave birth to a child, sadly, and basically the child was four months old, basically I had a miscarriage but obviously the baby was formed and it died in front of me.”
“I had to go to the hospital and my mum was there. I can remember my mum being really upset, I was in shock, I was upset.”
“That was really a shocking moment for me. But this is what I’m saying, I can talk about it now. Things sometimes are not meant to be.”
The chill blonde earlier talked about her abortion in her autobiography stating that she was taught that it was “God’s way” of punishing for her earlier miscarriage.
Gemma got pregnant when she was in a 5 yrs relationship with a City Banker and she was ignorant about her pregnancy and took contraceptive pills.
“I’ll never forget it, it was a very traumatizing experience because I didn’t know I was pregnant and literally I remember waking up with severe pains,” she shared remembering the incident.
“My mum said to me, ‘Gemma you need to go to the toilet,’ and I was like, ‘Honey, this is not…’ I mean obviously I couldn’t describe it… Look I try and find the bit of entertainment in this bad situation because I think that’s probably a coping mechanism of mine, I try to laugh or see a brighter side in things even though it was really traumatic.”
“But I can remember just being in utter shock. I’ve been through a lot so I feel in life, nothing shocks me.”
“So anything you could tell me now wouldn’t shock me because I’ve been through a lot and dealt with a lot but I’m grateful for those experiences because I can sit here today and relay them to other people.”
