We can’t imagine how poor Steve Backshall and his gold medal winning wife Helen Glover are feeling this week following their very sad news.
The couple took to Twitter this week to announce the devastating news that they have lost one of their baby twins. The news comes just a month after the couple announced they were expecting twins together. The olympian tweeted this emotional message to followers:
After they announced their engagement in 2015, Steve and Helen married in 2016 in a beautiful ceremony in Cornwall, surrounded by family and famous friends from Strictly.
44-year-old Steve also sent a tweet out with this message for fans: 'Many thanks for all your kind messages. We’ve had the news that one twin has not survived, but are still looking forward to our new addition this summer. Sb'
Within minutes of posting about their sad news, fans sent the couple floods of supportive messages and condolences including presenter Ben Fogle, whose wife Marina suffered a miscarriage a decade ago.
We're crossing our fingers hoping the rest of Helen's pregnancy goes smoothly and the remaining twin arrives safely for the lovely couple.
