The couple travelled to Mexico to begin their journey to start a family

Made in Chelsea star Ollie Locke has been left devastated after the surrogate having his baby miscarried after six weeks.

The 34-year-old reality star has been trying to start a family with his husband, Gareth Locke.

What did Ollie Lock say about the sad news?

Last night (December 28), Ollie took to Instagram to share the heartbreaking news. The Made in Chelsea star posted a photo of a baby’s blue dressing gown for his 482k followers to see.

Embroided on the dressing gown is the words: “Baby Locke Locke”. Ollie posted a lengthy caption alongside the photo, explaining what had happened, as well as paying tribute to his and Gareth’s surrogate.

“This is the last thing I want to be writing, but this is sadly a part of our journey,” he wrote.

“In early November our life changed in the most extraordinary and wonderful way, those two perfect lines shone through a pregnancy test telling us we were pregnant and Gareth, myself, our surrogate and our families were all ecstatic.”

The star then went on to say that having a “little bean” growing inside the “best person you could ever imagine”, was a “wonderful” early Christmas present.

“Through the course of nature, at six weeks and two days it stopped growing and had gone.”

What else did Ollie Locke say?

Ollie continued his heartbreaking caption by saying that “this isn’t the end of the road” for the couple when it comes to their plans for fatherhood.

The star then thanked fans for all their support and thanked them for being so kind to himself, Gareth, and their “heavenly” surrogate.

Ollie then went on to say that, moving forward, he will do everything in his power to help change British laws to make it easier for people trying to start a family.

“The rules which haven’t been reassessed in over 30 years are wildly unfair, currently firmly against gay equality and beyond archaic,” he said.

“Why would any government grant equal marriage, but make it so heartbreakingly difficult and frighteningly expensive to have a family,” he wrote.

He went on to explain to his fans why they allowed Channel 4 to air last night’s final scene.

“Myself and Gareth decided with great support and love from Channel 4 and Monkey Kingdom to play last night’s final scene as we feel this is a part of our journey which we will continue to share with you,” he said.

He then ended the caption by sending “all the love in the world” to his fans and followers.
