Mike Tindall has described his daughter Mia as a ‘saving grace’ during the pain of Zara Phillip’s miscarriage in December last year.
The former rugby player revealed how he coped with the devastating loss.
Speaking to The Sunday Times, he said: ‘One thing you do learn is how many other people have to go through the same thing.’
Mike said that their three-year-old daughter Mia had been a great comfort.
He continued: ‘The saving grace for us has been Mia’ adding ‘However down we feel, she will come running up in our faces.’
The Queen’s granddaughter Zara and her husband lost their unborn baby, just weeks after revealing they were expecting their second child.
A royal spokeswoman for the couple made the announcement on Christmas Eve last year.
A spokeswoman for the couple said: ‘Very sadly, Zara and Mike Tindall have lost their baby. At this difficult time, we ask that everyone respects their privacy.’
The loss of a baby through miscarriage can be devastating. A miscarriage generally occurs for reasons outside your control and nothing can be done to prevent or stop it from happening. Most women who have had a miscarriage will go on to have a healthy pregnancy in the future.
Up to 1 in 4 confirmed pregnancies end in miscarriage before 20 weeks, but many other women miscarry without having realised they are pregnant.
