Former Dancing On Ice star Myleene Klass says she appreciates Meghan Markle for being so open and honest about her experiences with miscarriage.

Stunning Myleene, 43, tragically had four miscarriages felt she couldn't talk about it for more than a year.

She has three children named Ava, Hero and Apollo.

She said she feels grateful for Meghan, 40, and her honesty when she wrote an article for The New York Times in November 2020, that detailed her experience with miscarriage.

Myleene told the Daily Express about how she tried to deal with the loss: "I would trawl the internet, which is never a good thing in the middle of the night, but to see women who are in my eyes so strong – such as Beyoncé, Meghan Markle and Michelle Obama.

"These things happen to women who are as strong as that.

"She added: "Women who have the best doctors. That gave me some comfort and made me feel less alone."

A a year ago Myleene shared openly on Instagram about her losses for the first time, posting that she was a "mama to seven babies" including "four little stars in the sky".

The article Myleene is referring to was written by the Duchess Of Sussex in July 2020, in the New York Times.

She said: "I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.

"My husband's heart broke as he tried to hold the shattered pieces of mine."

Meghan continued: "Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few."

There is a documentary coming soon that Myleene has created, called Myleene: Miscarriage & Me.

She wants to continue to raise awareness and to try and help others who are experiencing the same.

She said: "I felt so alone when it first happened to me, which is why I wanted to make a documentary to show that we're not alone."

The star says the ideas of a documentary came up on a few occasions but it just wasn't the right time.

She said: "I said 'no' about three times, but me and my manager sat down and said, 'This is the film we need to watch; this is what needs to be said'."

"You can see in pictures that although I'm smiling, my eyes are hollow."

She added: "I'd be crying then I'd go to work the next day because I didn't know what else you're supposed to do after this thing happens."
