Made in Chelsea ’s Ollie Locke has shared an update with fans after a heartbreaking development in his bid to have children with his husband Gareth, and the help of a surrogate, via IVF.
Ollie shared the news that while they had been successful with fertilising eggs in June, the IVF was ultimately unsuccessful.
Apologising for being “quiet” over the recent weeks, the 33 year old opened up about the upsetting news he has been dealing with.
Ollie wrote: "I'm sorry I have been quiet, sadly we found out last week our first attempt at IVF hasn't worked and after the heartbreaking news we have come to terms with the situation and are now looking forward to getting out to go for a second attempt very soon.
"Doing surrogacy and IVF is not a straightforward thing and there are a lot of ups and downs and testing times that really make you appreciate what it means to achieve the end result of having children," he continued.
Ollie ended the post by thanking their fans for their support and offering his thoughts to those that have struggled with IVF previously.
He wrote: "Our heart goes out to everyone who have been through this and still going through it and hope that sharing this journey and experience will highlight how difficult and emotional the journey really is.
"The support we have had has been amazing and we will continue to keep you all a part of our journey.
"I adore all you and all your kind messages, we are being super positive and looking forward to the next round!"
He then personally thanked their surrogate, writing: "Our surrogate is the best human I have ever met and we love her so very much, thank you for being our superstar."
Fans were quick to offer their support in the comments, with stories of their own to share.
One said: “My heart goes out to you both, Ollie and Gareth. My husband and my journey with IVF was unsuccessful and the pain is unbearable. I hope you’ll be successful soon. Sending positive vibes.”
Ollie replied to the comment himself, saying: “I’m sending you all the love and luck in the world!! This community is so wonderful and we are all together!”
