Last month, Binky revealed she suffered a miscarriage earlier this year.

The star  was expecting her second child – her first with fiancé Max – but sadly miscarried at the 12 week mark, leaving the couple ‘heartbroken’.

Binky took to Instagram to post an emotional message to her followers.

She wrote: ‘I’ve thought long and hard about doing this post, but I felt that if I can pass on any warmth, comfort or help to anybody in the same position – well that would be great. 

‘It’s only fair that I share some of my “downs” as well as my “up” moments. Today would have been my 18 week mark, but sadly we had an early miscarriage just before 12 weeks. Not only was this heartbreaking for us, but it also came as such a shock to me.

‘I hadn’t realised until then how blessed I was with having such a relatively straight forward pregnancy with India – I’ll admit I was naive enough to assume the next one would be as straightforward, but I had two early scans as I was concerned I was bleeding. 

‘They found a ‘very strong’ heartbeat. However, on the third scan I was told ‘I’m afraid there’s no heartbeat’.

‘I was told by my doctor that 1 in 4 pregnancies miscarry (not that statistics make it any easier!) With 82% of my following being women – that means roughly 237,800 women “following” me could (or have) experienced the same, which is just so sad.

  ‘When speaking to a few close friends about our situation, we learned that some of them too have had miscarriages in the past. I asked them why they’ve never said anything, and they just said they felt they couldn’t, or shouldn’t talk about it. Almost like it’s a taboo subject, which is heartbreaking.

‘If you have been through this, I hope you are giving yourself time to mentally and physically heal and do what you need. I keep reminding myself that there was nothing I could have done, and perhaps this was nature’s way of saying that for whatever reason, this little soul wasn’t ready for the world. Sending so so much love    

Binky announced she was engaged to Max, after 19 months of dating and shared a picture kissing the businessman while holding up her hand to show off the sparkling diamond.

Gushing about the proposal, which took place after he asked her daughter India for permission to pop the question, she wrote: ‘The easiest ‘Yes’ EVER!

‘On Friday morning, on their way to the duck pond, Max asked India for her permission to ask her mummy to marry him. 

‘I love you Max – you bring out the best in me. Im so lucky (sic).’ 

In the sweet snap, Binky passionately kissed her beau after she had accepted his proposal, which took place in a picturesque field at the Long Man of Wilmington.

Earlier this month, Binky and Max threw an intimate engagement party and returned to the not-so romantic scene of their first kiss. 

 Binky and Max have been going strong ever since meeting at separate parties at private members’ club Soho Farmhouse in January 2019.
