Naturally, the pair were heartbroken. The loss meant the pair moved back to Katie’s home town of Gundaroo and Karie gave up her business for an office job.
'We had to change everything. I was surprised how much it devastated us,’ admits Alex.
Although the pair initially didn’t want to talk about their loss, with Katie admitting she feared being pitied or accused of attention-seeking, they now acknowledge that it is important to normalise miscarriage.
The married couple are now parents to their ‘unicorn baby,’ daughter Hallie, one.
