Ben Foden‘s wife Jackie has discussed her recent miscarriage, describing it as a ‘bummer’ but said she will probably be pregnant again ‘next month’.
The US native, 37, recently revealed on Instagram that she suffered a miscarriage and in a new interview, has said the couple will try again.
Speaking on the Popular On DM podcast, Jackie said: ‘We were pregnant last month and lost it a couple of days ago on Monday. It was a bummer.

‘It was super weird to be pregnant and then wake up the next day and not be pregnant. Your boobs immediately feel different, you stop peeing constantly.’
Ben, 37, and Jackie are already parents to daughter Farrah, two, while the rugby player shares children Aoife Belle, 10, and Tadhg, seven, with his ex-wife Una Healy.
Jackie told how many of her friends have struggled to get pregnant and she feels lucky she and Ben got pregnant on their first go with Farrah.
She said: ‘We got pregnant on our first go, Farrah was our first go. A lot of my friends are having problems getting pregnant. I talk to them and they feel hopeless.
‘I’m 37, I fully expected this to happen. Realistically, I’m going to be pregnant again next month.’

Jackie added she thinks it’s important that women speak about their miscarriages as it is ‘so normal’.
She said: ‘A couple of people were like, I had a miscarriage too. I was like, let’s talk about it! It’s so normal. My mom went to me, “your body knows what to do in that scenario.” ‘
It comes after Jackie spoke out about her sad news as she hit back at a cruel online troll who directed some harsh words at her.
Jackie’s response read: ‘I was pregnant for a while so I haven’t had Botox in a while, just had a miscarriage last week, and my two-year-old has sleep regression so I haven’t slept in a million years. I apologise if my old haggard appearance bothers you.

‘I notice you don’t have any photos of yourself though… but you’re probably just too ridiculously good looking for people to even have the privilege of witnessing.’
The post on Instagram was the first time Jackie had revealed she and Ben were expecting a baby.
Ben and Jackie tied the knot in 2020 – a year and a half after his marriage broke down with Una, 40, due to his cheating, and only two days after his divorce was finalised.
Ben left the singer broken hearted when he was unfaithful, as he later admitted: ‘I was the one who committed adultery… It’s not ideal but we’re very amicable.’

Jackie spoke out about her relationship with Ben earlier this year, insisting they trust each other implicitly.
She told The Sun: ‘People perceive Ben as some slimy, habitual cheater and it’s really not who he is. I don’t think Ben could possibly cheat on me.’
Jackie added: ‘We have our passwords saved in each other’s phones, we use each other’s laptops, we track each other on Find My Friends. I could go through his Instagram right now if I wanted to.
‘We have a very honest and open relationship. We don’t lead separate lives. It’s frustrating that Ben’s cheating is brought up constantly.’
