Heartbreaking news.

Ollie Locke has revealed that his surrogate had a miscarriage six weeks into the pregnancy.

The Made in Chelsea star announced earlier this year that he and his husband, Gareth Locke, would be having a baby via surrogate.

He took to Instagram on Tuesday to share the devastating news.

“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 [my husband] Gareth, myself, our surrogate and our families were all ecstatic.

“After a difficult year, a little bean growing inside the best person you could ever imagine was the most wonderful early Christmas present we could ever have imagined. Through the course of nature, at 6 weeks and 2 days it stopped growing and had gone.

“This is not going to be the end of the road, in fact we have some wonderful plans and we continue to move forward towards the remarkable gift of fatherhood. All of your support has been amazing and I have read every DM you have sent and thank you for being so kind to Gareth, myself and our heavenly surrogate!

“With the greatest sadness we will always continue to look towards a silver lining, which is the shining beacon of a community that we have found who are all going through the same journey as us, trying to have the family they so wish and deserve. Your support has been remarkable!”

Ollie went on to promise to do everything in his power to try and bring attention to changing the British laws to making it easier for people trying to have a family.

“The rules which haven’t been reassessed in over 30 years are wildly unfair, currently firmly against gay equality and beyond archaic. Why would any government grant equal marriage, but make it so heartbreakingly difficult and frighteningly expensive to have a family, I will do everything in my power to open up the conversation of a modernisation in legislation change!”

“I love you all and let’s hope 2022 is a year that we all deserve, with such enormously loved babies brought into this world.”

Ollie and Gareth first started dating in 2018 and got married in 2020.
