‘Mark and I were going to make a pretty big announcement this week… we’re having a baby! I’m 10 weeks pregnant and we have been so excited daydreaming about what our little human would be like and getting ready for this new chapter,’ she added.
She continued: ‘But, this past week at my ultrasound we found out the sad news the pregnancy isn’t viable and I’ve had what’s called a missed miscarriage where my body still thinks it’s pregnant, but the fetus hasn’t progressed.’
Laural said she’s currently in hospital and will be having a procedure called ‘dilation and curettage’, which involves removing tissue from the uterus.
She also explained that she wanted to discuss her miscarriage because ‘pregnancy loss isn’t talked about much’.

‘It’s actually really common and happens to 1 in 4 pregnancies. I guess we were the unlucky 1 in 4 this time,’ she said.
‘I have peace in knowing that it’s likely because the embryo wasn’t 100% healthy and it just wasn’t compatible with life. But still it’s been an incredibly difficult few days to try process everything. I cry a lot and have eaten ice cream everyday this week.’
‘I wanted to share this here because it doesn’t feel right just pretending this huge life event hasn’t happened to us. I want to respect it and be open about it,’ she wrote.

She also said she ‘feels grateful to have a man like Mark by my side’ and they will ‘try again one day in the future but for now we will take things one day at a time and find our way back to a new normal.’
Mark also shared Laural’s post to his Instagram page and wrote: ‘Been riding a rough wave recently. My courageous wife Laural says it beautifully below. I love you Lollie, I’m so proud of you.’
The couple tied the knot in September 2015.
