Lorraine Kelly has opened up on the pain of suffering a miscarriage in the past as she detailed her struggle.
The popular TV presenter, 60, shared her own experience with the loss as she responded to a post by First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon on Twitter.
Nicola Sturgeon praised the country's Justice Minister Humza Yousaf and his wife Nadia El-Nakla, who sadly suffered a miscarriage during lockdown.
Nicola wrote: "Brave account of miscarriage from @HumzaYousaf & Nadia El-Nakla. It's an experience my husband & I had just once, but it never leaves you.

"Nadia's account of the physical pain especially sparks awful memories. We don't talk about all this enough."
Lorraine retweeted Nicola’s post and added: "Affects far too many of us @nicolasturgeon and you are so right. It never leaves you xx."
Lorraine, who shares daughter Rosie, 26, with her husband of 28 years Steve Smith, has previously opened up the devastating miscarriage she suffered when her daughter was five.
In 2015, she told OK! Magazine : "Another baby would have been super. But, hey, it didn't happen. I had a miscarriage when Rosie was about five."
Rosie also spoke about the loss, saying: "I do remember. We were in Dundee. I was in the car with Dad following the ambulance. I was okay, though – I had no idea what was going on."
In March this year Lorraine again spoke honestly about her past miscarriage, as she appeared on Giovanna Fletcher’s Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast.
The TV presenter explained: "That was a really difficult time and I think, yes of course we should absolutely sympathise with the women who go through this, but nobody asked after Steve.
"Nobody ever said 'How are you?' The only people who did, funnily enough, were friends that experienced it themselves and sadly as we know, far too many people experience it.
"I think we've got to be a bit more considerate about everyone and not just partners but extended family."

The TV star went on: "It was really sad but what did help me though was being open and talking about it at the time, because obviously I'm off work and you need to tell people why.
"That wasn't easy, but the response I got from viewers was unbelievable. I thought it was important to be honest.
"I felt we had to because viewers were asking what was wrong. We were just inundated with letters and really brave women sharing their experience with me. Really heartfelt. People took a lot of time and trouble."
