Steps star Lee Latchford-Evans appeared on Loose Women on Thursday alongside his wife Kerry Taylor after their pregnancy announcement, and spoke to hosts Charlene White, Frankie Bridge, Kelle Bryan and Jane Moore.
Kerry, who suffered a miscarriage in 2019, said: “I actually had to do three tests to convince Lee that it was positive. The first one it was a faint line.”
Lee, 46, cut in: “I couldn’t see it, I said there was no line and I couldn’t see it!”
Kerry continued: “His eyesight isn’t the best, bless him, and I said I think I am pregnant, and he said, ‘No, no, no. I woke up the next morning at 4am and I did another one.”
Lee said: “The first one was a very faint blue line. For whatever reason I still didn’t believe it so the next day Kerry did the third test and it was a digital one that said ‘pregnant’ and I couldn’t argue with that one.”
Kerry added: “The past few years have been really tough. In 2018 Lee lost his dad, then I lost my mum, we lost a pet and a week before my mum passed away I found out I was pregnant, and then I lost my mum.
“My dad has been so happy for us, but it’s been heartbreaking,” she said.
Lee said: “We had four months of hell, for all that to happen, two parents, a pet and a baby all within four months, it was a horrific time, and since then we have been trying and trying.
“It brought us closer together,” he added.
