The mother-of-one noted that morning sickness can weigh on the mental health of an expectant mother in the early stages of pregnancy. 

‘You are sensitive because for women like myself who have suffered to fall pregnant or even miscarried, to then hear someone say how hard it is, I get the two sides of the coin.’

Zoe and her husband Benji, 36, who are proud parents to their son Benjamin Fox, two, shared their exciting baby news in an Instagram post in December.

The happy news comes after Zoe revealed in April she’d suffered a devastating miscarriage in late  2019.

She explained that Benji, 35, had asked her not to announce her pregnancy too early because the emotional impact of losing a baby in 2019 had ‘rattled him’. 

‘We had a loss around this time last year. I think the impact of that on me really rattled him. He’s private in general but didn’t want me to share.’

Zoe married Wests Tigers star Benji at a private estate in Byron Bay in 2013.
