In recent years, Talitha has spoken openly about her 20-year crippling battle with alcoholism that would see her drink four bottles of wine each night before waking up to read the news at 5am each morning.
The mother-of-one hit her drinking nadir in 2010, when she was rushed to hospital to have her stomach pumped.
But it wasn’t until she published a blog post to her thousands of fans in 2012 that she opened up about her struggles with alcohol and her desire to change.
‘I no longer feel anxious about going to work, I have more confidence, I have savings in my bank account and I haven’t woken up wearing a kebab since I stopped drinking,’ Talitha wrote in the post.
She has now been sober for six years.
She tied the knot with her fitness instructor beau in October 2013 in a very low key ceremony in New York.
Talitha and Ben welcomed their first son, Oliver Paul Lucas in August, 2016.
