Coronation Street actress Jane Danson has opened up about suffering a miscarriage three years ago.
The star, who has two children with her husband Robert Beck, found out she had miscarried at the three-month scan.
Jane, 40, admitted she and Robert would love a third child however as they’re “getting older” and their sons are growing up, they are just appreciating what they have.
Speaking to OK! Magazine, Jane said: “Sadly we lost our third child a few years ago – I found out I’d miscarried at the three-month scan. It was heartbreaking and it took us a long time to get over it – I don’t think you ever do.
“There will always be that sadness there and there’ll always be that desire, but we’re getting older now and the boys are growing up. Sometimes you just have to appreciate what you have.”
Gushing over her hubby, Jane added: “Rob’s absolutely my best friend in the world. We’ve only had about two rows in twenty years.”

Meanwhile, Jane is preparing to star in the new series of Dancing On Ice – which starts next month.
Back in October, the actress – who plays Leanne Battersby in the ITV soap – admitted the offer was just too good to say no to and would regret it if she didn’t do the show.
She told the Press Association: “I think I’ve got to a stage in my life where if opportunities come along I can’t really turn them down.
“I’m 40 in November and the opportunity came up, I’ve not done anything new for a while and I just thought, do you know what, to be working with Torvill and Dean, who are amazing, it doesn’t really get any better than that.”
Jane added: “If I say no to this, I’m going to watch it and think that could have been me and I think I’d be a bit upset with myself.”
Jane will take to the ice alongside professional skater Sylvain Longchambon.
The brand new series – which will be hosted by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby – will return to our screens on Sunday, January 6.
