“This is something I would have preferred to keep out of social media but the amount of questions I was getting daily asking if I was pregnant is the reason I feel the need to share,” the mum-of-two wrote on Sunday alongside a picture of herself sporting a tiny bump.

“We didn’t want to share as I have been through this before almost losing Mars, but sadly we lost out little boy,” she shared.

“I want to be present on social media and work, as like everyone I have obligations. Please respect mine and my partner’s privacy, this is a topic I won’t be discussing at this point in time.”

Ruby hinted at troubled times last week, when she took to her Instagram Stories to tell her followers she was taking time off the platform to look after herself.

“I’m hoping to get back on track ASAP and keep connected during these odd times,” she explained, referencing Byron Bay’s current lockdown due to Covid-19.

“But for now, like many of you, I’m just trying to keep my head above water. Life isn’t fair sometimes, but it’s how you deal with it,” she wrote.

Ruby is mum to Rocket and Mars, who are four and three respectively.

The baby would have been her first with partner Shannan Dodd, who she became engaged to in June this year.

“No cute way of taking a photo with sausage fingers 🌭 But I’m off the market for good,” she shared on Instagram earlier this year, alongside an image of a square-cut diamond engagement ring.

“You have a heart of gold and are honestly adored by everyone who knows or meets you. My children love you, I love you, and I feel so blessed to spend the rest of my life with you,” the 28-year-old wrote to Shannan on his birthday last week.

Ruby often shares beautiful family snaps of Shannan with her sons, who she shares with ex Ryan Heywood.
