The star was heard holding back tears as he opened up about how he and Emma lost their "angel" daughter at 21 weeks gestation.

Opening up about the ordeal he and his wife of 12 years went through, Simon revealed: “We lost 11 along the way. It was horrific.”

"When Emma lost Georgia, she was 21 weeks, and what had happened was Emma's tubes were twisted, but Georgia stayed alive long enough to untwist the tubes which they said it was amazing how she survived all that and then went," he added.
